The boys of One Direction are global super stars and that means they sometimes have to deal with the stress rumors can bring.

It’s no secret that the boy band are close and are often seen grabbing and slapping each other’s crotches. In an interview with MIX 105.1/Orlando Niall Horan addressed the subject when shown a photo of the band in action.

“That one is just to make the girls scream isn’t it?” Niall Horan said to Zayn Malik. Malik agreed stating, “We do it when we’re taking photos. We make each other laugh, grabbing each other’s bums.”

It’s these photos that have caused some raised eyebrows. Louis Tomlinson took to Twitter to settle the story behind his relationship with bandmate Harry Styles once and for all. While some fans have coined the term “Larry Stylinson” to reflect the members’ apparent “bromance,” Louis wanted to set the record straight.

That wasn’t the only thing that upset Louis this weekend. It turns out some people have been cursing at his mother, causing him to call them out. “Can I ask why this is ok? To think someone would speak to my Mum like that sickens me. Grow the f*** up!”

Done with his rant, Louis took to Twitter once again to apologize to his fans.

And even the boys need some quality hang time with their friends.

Though Louis had a difficult weekend, there was some good news from One Direction announced earlier today that surely put him in a better mood.
