So far, obviously, we haven't had to do anything like this Season 1 moment in Season 2. But I promise that, in case I'm lying and we actually have, no fennec foxes were killed, injured, frightened or even slightly put out by it.
hello! Why are so many people today saying babygate is real all of a sudden? Did something happen? What happened?
Hi, darling. I’m going to go ahead and make this post with all the info, I’m sure it will be useful for future reference. So thank you for your question 😊
So, earlier this year Louis started to interact with this girl (Tanika) on twitter, she sent him *hundreds* of videos of her 4/5 year old son (Bentley) singing Louis’ songs. The videos are absolutely adorable, the kid is very sweet and clearly adores Louis. The interaction resulted in Louis inviting them to one of his shows (they’re from Australia) and also a facetime call so Louis could talk to Bentley.
She posted several videos of the call - although it was supposed to be a private conversation between them - Louis talking and having fun with Bentley in the videos.
Not long after it, she started to answer questions on TikTok like these:
And she did posted a video of Louis calling Freddie (off camera) and then him asking her to stop recording.
So let’s just stop here for a second to appreciate what happened. Tanika seemed to be a larrie(ish). She posts hundreds of pictures and videos of her kid online to get noticed by Louis, and when she gets a chance to talk to him privately, she also posts a bunch of videos of that. Including Louis talking with “his son” (that conveniently doesn’t appear on the video) just to shut larries up since everyone was saying it was bullshit. Just to prove a point. On the screenshots, she says she immediately “unlarried” after talking to him.
That was months ago. Last week, Louis was finally in Australia and they met, Tanika shared a bunch of pictures of her and Bentley and everything.
And yesterday, these rumours started to spread:
Tanika said that this is a lie and I couldn’t care less about the beef with this other person. But there’s a lot of back and forth and a lot of people being put in hot waters and trying to save their own asses for talking about something they “shouldn’t”.
But there is this one screenshot of what Louis allegedly DMed her, and that’s what made her “unlarrie”.
Tanika (so far) doesn’t seem able to confirm or deny (she confirmed to everyone who asked her privately) whether this message is real, although she seems very interested in knowing where the screenshot came from. Confirming that would put her in a very uncomfortable position, since she would be leaking a “private conversation” about something personal that Louis “confided” her (just like the videos).
The situation is absurd. People seem to believe that out of all the things in the world *the* Louis Tomlinson would confide her and only to her - someone who gained his trust and honest friendship - such a thing because “he doesn’t think people really know how he feels about Larry”. Because, of course, he doesn’t seem able to express that publicly, since he doesn’t stop engaging and encouraging everything Larry related, basically admitting he is in fact larrybaiting.
Personally I’m very inclined to think the screenshot is real, although obviously a huge ass lie. He did call Freddie off camera after all, so IMO this is just one more time being used to push babygate and once again put fans against each other, because they knew she would spread everything about it. This is as old as time, like “the prank call” where people happened to be conveniently recording and all the other times because larry is a load of bullshit. I think he’s very lucky he didn’t come across larries that have been to hell and back when trying to push that shit down our throats, he would have a lot of explaining to do.
