The two got together after Tomlinson parted with longtime girlfriend Eleanor Calder. Tomlinson has been linked in recent weeks to 20-year-old American actress Danielle Campbell.
One Direction emerged in 2010 on the British television contest The X Factor and since then has been one of the world's top-selling bands, packing arenas with screaming teenagers.
The band in November declared a hiatus until further notice as it released its 5th studio album, Made in the A.M.
One Direction's once squeaky-clean image was dented last year with the departure of Zayn Malik, who later denounced his former bandmates for making "generic" music. – Rappler.com
