Louis was seen exiting Justin's home wearing a shirt reading 'British Rogue' as Mail Online said he was looking "weary" and UnrealityTV reported he was taking a "walk of shame." The Inquisitr wondered if the two are dating.
Turns out that wasn't even Justin's house – anymore. He used to live there but hasn't for months now. Louis was reportedly renting the house for himself and some friends while he was in LA. We're still curious how the paparazzi even knew he was there to take the shots of him leaving...interesting.
Meanwhile, Hollywood Life is painting a pretty bromantic picture, with a source explaining, "Justin and Louis have been pals for a few years, having met at awards ceremonies in the past. The pair of them are like brothers-in-arms, they're typically ladish and united over their love of soccer, and obviously, attractive girls. They like to party, they're young, rich and are having a lot of fun at the moment."
The insider added, "Their friendship isn't really built on music, they don't have any plans to work together, but they wouldn't rule it out. Louis and Justin just enjoy each other's company, that's all."
It all sounds like a bit of a stretch, if you ask us.
