Louis Tomlinson is allegedly in Chicago, and One Direction fans are completely losing their minds. There hasn’t been much news to share about Louis and the rest of the boys since the members of One Direction started their lengthy break from recording and touring together, so fans really freaked out when they saw two tweets about Louis Tomlinson that included updates on what the singer has been up to recently. Directioners had polar reactions to these tweets: One of them broke more than a few Directioners’ hearts, and the other elated the “Larries” who are still convinced that Louis and Harry Styles are secret gay lovers.
According to Unreality TV, one of the tweets in question includes a blurry Snapchat screengrab that appears to show Louis Tomlinson sitting at someone’s kitchen counter. A few eagle-eyed One Direction fans have pointed out that the counter looks suspiciously like one that can be seen in photos of Danielle Campbell’s family home in Chicago, Illinois. Rumors have already been circulating that 23-year-old Louis is romantically involved with the 20-year-old star of The Originals, so it was only a matter of time before Directioners made “Louis is in Chicago” one of the top trending topics on Twitter.
Rumor is that Danielle Campbell posted this pic of Louis on Snapchat today. It does look like her kitchen counter -E pic.twitter.com/WyOHeITyfN

According to one tweet, the Snapchat screengrab of Louis Tomlinson at Danielle Campbell’s house was taken late Friday night, and it was obtained by a girl whose best friend went to high school with The Originals actress.
However, many Directioners don’t really care whether or not Louis Tomlinson is actually in the Windy City in the photo below because they’re too busy freaking out about what Louis is wearing. As you can see, it looks like Louis has borrowed Harry Styles’ old bomber jacket. However, it’s important to point out that there’s a chance that the cozy-looking coat was never actually worn by Harry — perhaps Louis and his bandmate simply bought the same jacket.

Regardless of what the story behind Louis Tomlinson’s jacket is, forever hopeful Larry Stylinson shippers want to believe that Louis is wearing it because he misses Harry Styles.
Don’t worry guys. Louis & Danielle are just friends and he’s dating Harry which is why he wore his jacket. Nothing extraordinary is going on

Some Directioners think that Louis Tomlinson’s jacket looks a bit different from the one Harry Styles was pictured wearing a few years ago. The pocket on Louis’ coat appears to be lower, and it looks like it might have a horizontal zipper instead of a vertical one. However, it’s hard to tell because the photo of Louis is so blurry.
If Louis Tomlinson really is in Chicago to visit Danielle Campbell, it wouldn’t be the first time he’s spent time with The Originals actress. According to the Daily Mail, Louis and Danielle enjoyed each other’s company at a Millions of Milkshakes in Hollywood earlier this month. Louis Tomlinson can also be seen posing with Danielle in a November 21 Instagram photo posted by actress Keelin Woodell, and Heatworld reports that Louis and Danielle have been spotted partying together at Bootsy Bellows.
It doesn’t look like there’s much of a chance that Briana Jungwirth and Louis Tomlinson will ever be romantically involved, and the stylist might actually be happy that the father of her child has a love life that doesn’t involve her – all this Danielle Campbell drama has temporarily made Directioners forget about how much they dislike poor Briana.
