Harry Styles is in on the prank. Onstage Wednesday night during his ongoing concert series at Madison Square Garden, Styles poked fun at the wild speculation he spat about Chris Pine this week at the Venice Film Festival.
“This is our 10th show at Madison Square Garden, it’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to be back here,” Styles said during the opening of his “Love On Tour: Madison Square Garden Is Harry’s House” show.
“I only came to Venice to spit on Chris Pine. But don’t worry, we’re back!”
The remarks drew applause from the crowd, which no doubt had high anticipation for the incident.
Rumors have been circulating since Monday about Styles spitting on Pine’s lap. The moment was captured in a viral video of the Don’t Worry Darling co-stars at the Venice Film Festival premiere.
The moment happened when Styles was sitting next to his co-star. His head dipped briefly and Pine froze and flashed an odd smile as he looked down at his hands. It looked like Styles had spat on Pine’s lap.
Pine’s representatives called the spitting rumors “ridiculous stories.”
