Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles, the two prominent “One Direction“ members, have long had to endure fanfic rumors and theories about an affair between the two of them.

Now, possibly for the first time ever, Louis addresses these rumours head on. “I’ve never actually been asked about that directly”, he says.

Over the years, fans have claimed that Louis and Harry are hiding a secret affair – which is a fun thought, when you look at these two good looking fellows and how close they were. The fans even gave this alleged romance a power-couple name: “Larry” (as in – Louis and Harry).

At some point, Louis got so annoyed with these allegations, that he banned its mention from his Instagram account. Things got even weirder earlier this year, when Harry allegedly tweeted a porn clip of Louis and him.

Speaking with The Sun, Louis now says “people can believe anything they want” – but the theories are certainly not true. They did, however, hurt his friendship with Harry.

“It kind of happened naturally for me and Harry because a certain amount of the fans drew up this conspiracy. When it first came around I was with Eleanor, and it actually felt a little bit disrespectful to Eleanor, who is my girlfriend now.

“It created this atmosphere between the two of us where everyone was looking into everything we did. It took away the vibe you get off anyone. It made everything, I think on both fences, a little bit more unapproachable.

I think it shows that it was never anything real, if I can use that word.”
