Harry Styles tells crowd he went to Venice to spit on Chris Pine

Harry Styles tells crowd he went to Venice to spit on Chris Pine

During his Madison Square Gardens concert, Harry Styles joked about spitting on Chris Pine in Venice.

After Twitter went wild over footage some claim shows Harry Styles spitting on his Don't Worry Darling co-star Chris Pine, the 'As It Was' singer has made it very clear he's in on the joke.

As people analysed footage of the stars from every angle - which shows Pine suddenly stop clapping as Styles takes a seat next to him, look down, and pull a face - Styles has spoke out about what happened for the first time.

Watch below:

Chris' reps have categorically denied that Styles spat on Chris, telling Variety: "This is a ridiculous story – a complete fabrication and the result of an odd online illusion that is clearly deceiving and allows for foolish speculation.

“Just to be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine. There is nothing but respect between these two men and any suggestion otherwise is a blatant attempt to create drama that simply does not exist."

Sources close to Harry also denied the rumour and while the whole thing seemed pretty dramatic, the singer took it in his stride.

Styles addressed the incident during his return to Madison Square Garden yesterday (7 September).

"This is our tenth show at Madison Square Garden. It’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back in New York. I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine," Harry joked.

"But fret not, we’re back!"

The singer then launched into his concert, seemingly unfazed by the dumpster fire that is Twitter.

Still, this isn't the first time that Chris and Harry have made headlines in the past week.

On Monday (5 September), Chris' facial expressions started going viral as he listened to Harry answer a journalist's question.

Speaking about his favourite thing about working on Don't Worry Darling, Harry said: "You know, my favourite thing about the movie is, like, it feels like a movie. It feels like a real, like, you know, go to the theatre film, movie. The reason why you go to watch something on the big screen."

We should hope that something soon to be released, in cinemas, feels like a movie.

Despite the odd answer, people on Twitter paid more attention to Chris, with one user saying "Poor Chris Pine looks like he'd rather be anywhere else on the planet," while another added: "Someone needs to rescue this man."
