One Direction members Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson were said to be having a secret affair for a long time. Now, the 25-year-old singer has finally confirmed that the Larry tandem is not true.
During an interview with The Sun, Tomlinson was asked about their rumoured romantic connection. He said: "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."
"I'm so protective over things like that, about the people I love. So 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," he added.
Tomlinson also praised Taylor Swift's former boyfriend, who recently starred in Christopher Nolan's new film, Dunkirk. He said: "Harry is actually an inspiring person to watch as a businessman, as a musician. He doesn't really lose, Harry. He's a very, very hard worker and his potential is massive in so many different fields."
