One Direction Star Louis Tomlinson Slams Gay Rumors: I'm Not Dating Harry Styles

Straight talk: "Me and Harry are best friends"

One Direction heartthrob Louis Tomlinson is pleading for an end to rumors that he and bandmate Harry Styles are, well, more than just friends.

The two sparked gay rumors after tweeting giggle-inducing photos of them kissing  -- and offering tongue-in-cheek PDAs for the press -- but Tomlinson isn’t laughing now.

What did he say?

“This is a subject that was funny at first but now is actually hard to deal with, as I am in a relationship,” he revealed during an interview with Tumblr’s Storyboard.

The 21-year-old is currently dating Manchester University politics and sociology student, Eleanor Calder, 20.

Tomlinson  went on to say that the gay whispers are even affecting his relationship with Styles.

“Me and Harry are best friends,” he said. “People look into our every move -- it is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public.”

He added that his behavior with the 18-year-old isn’t unusual – it’s par for the One Direction course.

“We want to joke around, but there seems to be a different rumour every time we do anything,” he said. “I act the same way with Harry as I do any of the other boys.”

Besides, Tomlinson adds, Calder has no reason to worry.

“I'm a one-woman man with Eleanor,” he said. “I'm a very loyal boyfriend.”

In other 1D news, group member Liam Payne is shooting down speculation that the singing sensations would soon disband.

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton recently told Sugarscape: “I think ultimately one of them will quit or get fired, they’ll continue on as a foursome and then not too long after – maybe a year or two – they’ll break up.”

Payne, however, said he’d never go solo.

“I think it would be massively, massively boring,” he told Top of the Pops magazine. “I don’t know how Justin Bieber does it, but full props to him.”

“I like being around the boys. I enjoy other people’s company, and it’s a lot more fun being in a band on stage.”
