Louis says that there’s “obviously no truth” to the conspiracy theory that he and Harry Styles are in a secret relationship.
In the early days of One Direction’s career, a certain proportion of their fanbase developed a conspiracy theory that Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles were in a secret relationship.
The theory was named “Larry Stylinson” and became a mainstay during the band's time in the spotlight. While Harry and Louis never really addressed it, Zayn Malik admitted after quitting the band that the pair found it “difficult” to deal with the speculation, and that it had affected their friendship.
Well, Louis has now addressed ~Larry Stylinson~ for the first time.

I've never actually been asked about it directly. It's a funny thing. 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.
He then went on to say that the rumours also affected his friendship with Harry, as they were conscious that their fans were analysing their every move.
