Lauren Jauregui and Louis Tomlinson made our fangirl hearts explode when photos surfaced of the two hanging out, and automatically, people assumed that the One Direction and Fifth Harmony singers were an item. Lauren unfortunately found herself on the receiving end of some harsh comments from people who weren't too thrilled to see her spending time with Louis and she has addressed the situation in a new interview.
"My phone died and I had no way of getting home so Louis said, 'Jump in a car with me.' We got to know each other that night, it was the first time we really hung out," she said. "I won't allow people who have no idea what's going on to dictate situations."
Lauren has every right to defend herself, even though she doesn't have to explain what she does or how she spends her time to anyone. It's great to see that she's taking a stand against the online hate she received and we hope she doesn't let this bother her too much. Lauren and Louis do make a fabulous pair of friends after all!
