Everyone turned detective overnight after a video of Harry Styles “spitting” on Chris Pine at the Venice Film Festival went viral.
The clip showed Styles arriving to take his empty seat next to Pine, who is smiling and clapping. The video captured the former One Direction frontman puckering his lips, then Pine looks down at his own lap and pauses for a moment.
Social media users debated if the singer did indeed spat in the lap of his co-star Pine during the movie's premiere and many believed he did.
However, a representative of Chris Pine told Entertainment Weekly that it is a ridiculous story.
The rep stated in the interview that it was a complete misunderstanding and the result of an odd online illusion that is clearly deceiving.
“Just to be clear, Harry Styles did NOT spit on Chris Pine."
The viral footage sent everyone eager to know the truth.
