Sophia Smith and Eleanor Calder are still close friends, despite the fact that they're no longer in relationships with Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson. Their bond goes stronger than just being One Direction's ex-girlfriends! In fact, when a report came out claiming that Sophia found her ex's relationship with Cheryl Cole to be "so weird," Eleanor stepped in to defend her bestie.
She wrote on reporter Joshua Fox's Instagram that she was "shocked and embarrassed" that he would "[make] that up," and says that it's totally not true.
"She doesn't deserve for you to spread lies about her and/or her situation. It's a shame cause you used to be cool," Eleanor spilled.
It's so sweet that she's sticking up for her friend! The reporter still insists on Now magazine that he was telling the truth, but this goes to show that this isn't the last we'll hear about the interview.
