Louis Tomlinson's girlfriend Eleanor Calder has said she is with the singer because she "loves him" and not because he is in the band.
The 22-year-old is a politics student and part-time Abercrombie and Fitch model.
She was recently quizzed by her twitter followers about her realationship with Louis.
A fan tweeted: "@EleanorJCalder DO YOU LOVE LOUIS? OR DO YOU JUST WANT FAME? PLEASE ANSWER BABE WE NEED TO KNOW THE TRUTH!"
The model replied: "@1d_for_EVAH Of course I love him.. I love Louis as a person, not as a member of a band."
Eleanor has 295,568 followers on the social networking site and many of them are envious of her dating Louis.
A fan tweeted: "I just want you to know that you're one of the luckiest girl alive for having Louis ;) please take good care of him."
Meanwhile, Louis's mum Johannah has said that the One Direciton lads are really good friends.
She told Sugarscape: "They've been put in a band, and whatever stress they've had they've have made four good friends that they never would have made otherwise.
"People assume that bands are mates for all the publicity but actually they're like that all the time. They seek each other out on their days off and they spend time with each other out of choice. It's very natural.
"You'd never think they were put together, it's so lucky."
