The concerned family of Doncaster pop star Louis Tomlinson have been rallying around the One Direction heart-throb to support him in the wake of his love split, according to national newspaper reports.
Louis, 23, broke up from his girlfriend of four years, Eleanor Calder, earlier this month.
His teenage sister Lottie has been touring with the boys and is providing a shoulder for Louis to cry on.
A source told the Daily Mirror: “Lottie has always been close to Louis, so it’s great for him to have her there while on the road.
“It’s been a tough time for him, and Lottie – who was also close to Eleanor – understands him better than anyone.
Louis was photographed last week kissing a curly haired girl in a swimming pool in Bangkok.
1D fans believe the girl had previously starred in the band’s video for What Makes You Beautiful.
Friends have also flocked to comfort Eleanor by staying with her at her London home.
Meanwhile, Louis’ bandmate Zayn Malik, 22, is still in the UK after flying home from the Asian leg of the tour last week.
It followed photos appearing to show him holding hands with Essex girl Lauren Richardson.
Zayn tweeted his love for fiancee Perrie Edwards, adding: “Sorry for what it looks like.”
The star was signed off from three nights of the tour with stress and flew home to recuperate. It is hoped he will return for this weekend’s dates in South Africa.
