1D's Louis: US Fans Think Me & Harry Are Gay
The pair have even been given the nickname Larry Stylinson...
One Directionstars Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson have revealed that many of their Stateside fans believe they are in a relationship.
Speaking to local radio station KXXAS, The Metro reports that Harry and Louis are often asked by their US devotees whether they are gay - with Tomlinson stating they can do nothing but laugh about the rumours.
When asked about Styles, the 20-year old confessed: "I was looking at this thing the other day. They genuinely, seriously think that we’re in a relationship. It’s so funny!"
Tomlinson - who has since been spotted out and about with girlfriend Eleanor Calder in a bid to quash the rumours - went on to add that some of their American followers are so convinced he's romancing Harry, that they have given them the joint nickname of Larry Stylinson.
While Louis and Harry try to prove they are just friends, sources have claimed that Irish member Niall Horan is proving a hit with girls in the States, with some even becoming 'obsessed' with the blonde singer.
A roadshow source told The Metro: "They love the fact he’s Irish and looks like the perfect all-American boy. He gets swamped wherever he goes."
Meanwhile, 1D hysteria continues to spread across the pond, with reports suggesting a number of their fans in Montreal ended up in hospital after waiting for the band in freezing conditions overnight.
According to The Sun, 300 screaming girls camped for over 35hours in -10 temperatures to catch a glimpse of The X Factor group ahead of their performance at Montreal's Musique Plus studio - with so many fans packing the street that it had to be closed.
It is thought ambulance workers treated 14 girls, with six of them being hospitalised for conditions ranging from mild hypothermia to fainting.
The boys later arrived at the venue in a white van complete with a police escort as they continue to promote their US No.1 album, Up All Night.
