It's a question that's been dividing the internet all week: Did Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine?
Icon Dionne Warwick has now weighed in on the debate.
She says it never happened and would like everyone to give that "young man" Harry Styles a break.
Sure, there's a lot going on this week, but in some corners of the internet, the only thing that matters is whether or not Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine during a screening of their new film, "Don't Worry Darling," at the Venice Film Festival on Tuesday.

"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," a rep for Pine told People.
"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."
And yet! The drama persisted, with many fans absolutely sure that Styles hocked a loogie on Pine's lap.
During his Wednesday night concert at Madison Square Garden, Styles even joked that he'd "popped very quickly to Venice to spit on Chris Pine."
Now, perhaps the most important voice has weighed in on the Most Important Saliva Story of Our Times: icon and noted singer, and undisputed Queen of Twitter, Dionne Warwick. (Warwick received the title in 2021 after a Newark, New Jersey, art gallery put together a show featuring her tweets.)
