Louis Tomlinson and model Tamara Bell ignited romance rumors when they held hands at the Glastonbury Music Festival on June 26. So what gives? HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned they’ve been friends for years, but they’ve recently upgraded their relationship status.
Are Louis Tomlinson, 23, and model Tamara Bell more than friends? They first sparked dating rumors when they were caught holding hands at the Glastonbury Music Festival on Friday, June 26, and now, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that while they’ve always been “flirty” with each other, they’ve recently “upgraded their friendship” into a bit of a romance.
“Louis and Tamara have actually been friends for years,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They were introduced to each other by Lou Teasdale, the band’s stylist, and have always enjoyed a flirty relationship without acting upon it. But now that Louis is single again, they’ve upgraded their friendship into a little more in recent weeks.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Louis and his ex, Eleanor Calder, split in March 2015. And since then, the One Direction singer spent most of that time partying all over the globe. But it seems as though Tamara may be Louis’ next big love.
“[Tamara] finds him incredibly charming and witty, while he thinks she’s a real beauty and is having fun with her. They don’t want to say it’s serious yet — they’re not calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend just yet — but they want to see where it goes,” our source adds.
We have a feeling that Louis will be calling Tamara his girlfriend in the very near future. She’s such a cutie! Don’t you think?!
