The UK’s X-Factor-born boy band, One Direction, recently hit the Billboards 200 list at the #1 spot with their first album Up All Nigh,t released in 2011. They’ve hit a record of being the first British group to enter the top spot in the American Billboards chart.
The boys were spotted yesterday (July 18th) on their home turf in London leaving the Sony Music Offices. As there is still much success with this tight knit 5-member boy band, there are bound to be rumors that two of them in particular may be getting a little too close.
Band members, Louis Tomlinson, 20, and Harry Styles, 18, enjoy making fun of themselves, but has the rumors about Larry gone too far? “I’m a bit of a Joker” said Tomlinson. “This is a subject that was funny at first but now is actually hard to deal with as I am in relationship. Me and Harry are best friends, people look into our every move, it is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public, we want to joke around but there seems to be a different rumor every time we do anything.”
Tomlinson is dating Manchester University student and model, Elanor Calder. The two met through Harry and have been dating for nine months. “I’m a one-woman man with Eleanor,” said Tomlinson. “I’m a very loyal boyfriend.”
1D Fans will say what they want but Harry and Tomlinson’s relationship is platonic. Another member of One Direction, Liam Payne said to Storyboard about the attitude of the whole group in general, “I think we just try to be ourselves as much as possible and never take anything too seriously.”
