During the early days of One Direction, the band’s fervent fans were eager to analyse every single thing they posted online. At the time, Twitter and Tumblr were the meeting places for their passionate fanbase, the Directioners. After a number of videos supposedly showing Louis and Harry getting closer were posted, a rumour began that the pair had a secret love affair behind closed doors. This relationship was dubbed Larry Stylinson.
In 2017, two years after the band broke up, Louis was asked by The Sun about these rumours.
And, although he took a lot of it in good fun, he did reveal that he wasn’t too happy about the rumours.
The singer 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.”
Louis went on to talk about his long-term girlfriend, Eleanor, with whom he now has a child, Freddie Reign Tomlinson.
He revealed: “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.”

Louis went on to add: “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.”
Harry and Louis haven’t been seen in public together since the band split in 2015.
Rumours of the pair’s relationship have died down now, but certain parts of the Directioner fandom are convinced it did really happen.
In the early 2010s the mounting rumours got on top of Louis, prompting him to lash out at his fans on Twitter.
He wrote: “How’s this, Larry is the biggest load of bulls*** I’ve ever heard.
“I’m happy, why can’t you accept that?”
Harry also spoke out about claims one of the band’s songs was written by him about Louis.
In a radio interview at the time, he said: “I mean, I think people are always gonna speculate what songs are about, and I don’t think I’d ever want to tell someone they’re wrong for feeling what they feel about a song.
“I think if you really listen to the lyrics, I think you can work out if it’s really about that or not. And I would lean towards no.”
