As these things go, Louis was seen talking with a blonde woman at Club Liv in Manchester on Saturday night. Talking. Yep, not dating or hooking up with her.
According to the Daily Mail, "The two looked rather close as they talked, the pretty young woman leaning in to talk into his ear while he listened." Louis even appeared to be pointing out some of his arm tattoos to the girl.
A spokesperson for the club said: 'It was a surprise visit. [Louis] arrived at around 2am and stayed until the end of the night. He was with his tour manager and security team...At the end of the night he stopped to pose for pictures with staff. We were all shocked to see a member of the world's biggest boyband here. There were rumours he was in Manchester but we didn't know he was coming. He's a really nice guy."
Note there was no PDA and nothing romantic going on – plus, the Daily Mail reports, "the previous night saw Louis chatting away to another mystery blonde, while out partying at London nightspot Libertine."
According to Now magazine, however, Louis totally got turned down when he asked her out, with a source telling the mag: "Louis was in high spirits from the second he arrived at Libertine...Although he could have had his pick of the girls, he only seemed to have eyes for a tall blonde he followed out to the smoking area after introducing himself along with his pal Stan and security guard."
The insider added, "After she mentioned she supported [soccer team] Brighton FC, Louis invited her to come watch him play his next game with Doncaster Rovers, which she hilariously rejected due to work."
Denied. Louis and his pals reportedly "burst into laughter and headed back into the club" though, so it doesn't sound like he was too torn up.
