Fans reckon recent photos of Louis show wires in his mouth

One Direction fans are wondering whether Louis Tomlinson is rocking braces.

Directioners got hold of a rumour last weekend that Louis, 22, is having orthodontic work done after seeing Twitter snaps that appear to show a piece of metal across his teeth.

‘@Louis_Tomlinson do you wear braces or is that picture photoshopped? Please tell me it’s fake cause you’re perfect Louis Tweeted one.

Another wrote: ‘CAN SOMEONE TELL ME THE TRUTH IF @Louis_Tomlinson REALLY GET SOME BRACES?!’

It’s clear from older photos of Louis – who’s currently in Bogotá, Colombia for the first date of 1D‘s Where We Are tour tonight – that his pearly whites are very straight.

So 1D devotees have suggested that the pictures are doctored or that he’s wearing a retainer.

One follower has uploaded a screenshot that she claims is from a direct message conversation with Louis, where he answers the question of whether he has braces with: ‘Nooooo I don’t ha’.

Louis has chosen to ignore the situation on his own page, instead using his most recent Tweet to urge users to donate money to charity Teenage Cancer Trust.

‘Support the inspirational #StephensStory and donate to @TeenageCancer by texting STEPHEN to 70500 to donate £5 http://bit.ly/1f3mwD9,’ he wrote last night.
