Louis Tomlinson Just Denied ~Larry Stylinson~ Once And For All

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.

Speaking to The Sun on Monday, Louis revealed that the theories firstly put pressure on his relationship with girlfriend Eleanor Calder.

Louis 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.

Louis explained:

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 a little bit more unapproachable. I think [what's happened since] shows that it was never anything "real" if I can use that word.

He said:

It's a funny thing, people can believe what they want to believe. But it's like anything – if you Google "Conspiracy on iPhones," you're going to get a conspiracy. So it's one of these things that people love to buy into, but in reality obviously there's no truth to it. Obviously.
