Turns out, we didn't have to wait long, since, according to a new report, Louis and Harry's relationship is "strained" as a result of the feud between Louis and Zayn.
A source told The Sun (via HeatWorld) that Harry is giving Louis the cold shoulder after the Twitter dust-up and is worrying about damage done to One Direction's reputation. Oh the (reported) tension.
The insider squealed: "Harry is very aware of 1D's reputation and doesn't like getting into any public scrapes, especially with other members of the band."
The source added, "It's fair to say his relationship with Louis has been strained for some time and the last couple of weeks hasn't helped matters."
A band insider, however, says that "they're fine" and working together in the studio on the next 1D album.
