Harry Styles joked about spitting on Chris Pine last night (September 7) as he returned to the stage for a concert in New York.
It follows a viral clip at the premiere of Don’t Worry Darling in Venice earlier this week which many viewers believed showed Styles spitting on co-star Pine as he took his seat next to him.
“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,” Pine’s representative said. “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.”

Making light of the clip, Styles joked during his Madison Square Garden concert: “It’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back in New York. I just popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine.”
The show was the star’s 10th show over the last month at the venue and saw him perform a host of hits from his recent album ‘Harry’s House’ including ‘Day Dreaming’, ‘As It Was‘, ‘Late Night Talking’ and ‘Music For A Sushi Restaurant’.
Meanwhile, Don’t Worry Darling is scheduled to be released in cinemas on September 23.
