Internet sleuths spent much of Tuesday believing that “Don’t Worry Darling” colleagues Harry Styles and Chris Pine were sick of it.

But a spokesperson for Pine denies that Styles spat on the ‘Star Trek’ actor.

In a short music video that went viral late Monday, Styles can be seen alongside Pine at the Venice Film Festival premiere of “Don’t Worry Darling,” a 1950s satirical thriller directed by Olivia Wilde, who is dating with the pop star.

Sounds clear enough. But many Twitter users believed the video shows Styles, 28, right in the lap of Pine, 42, who then looks down at his pants and laughs to himself. Styles, for his part, seems to avoid eye contact with Pine.

In a statement to Varietyhowever, a Pine representative denied that Styles spat on his opponent, calling the internet chatter a “ludicrous story — a complete fabrication and the result of a strange online illusion that is clearly deceiving and permitting silly speculation.”

“To be clear, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine,” the rep added. “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.”

Twitter nevertheless lit up early Tuesday discussing the clip, with some users skeptical.

A user tweeted: “Do people really think Harry walked over there and decided to spit on Chris for no reason in front of several people?

Another user offered another theory: “Chris Pine was just wondering where his sunglasses were after the applause. And he was broadcasting (as he’s been doing all day) and realized he was on his lap. I’m sorry to say that Harry Styles wasn’t on spat at him.”

A Styles representative did not immediately respond to emails requesting comment on the video.

The viral clip is just the latest event on the “Don’t Worry Darling” press tour to spark widespread interest online.

In recent weeks, fans have been speculating about behind-the-scenes drama, including a reported feud between Wilde and ‘Darling’ star Florence Pugh, as well as conflicting stories about the actor Shia LaBeouf leaves the project.

at a press conference at the Venice Film Festival on Monday, Wilde praised Pugh and called the Oscar-nominated actor a “force.” She declined to comment on the speculation about LaBeouf, who was originally cast as the film’s male lead.

Pugh was absent from the press conference, allegedly due to a scheduling conflict, but she was photographed arriving at the festival with an Aperol Spritz in hand. (Pug’s entrance soon became a meme.) She appeared on the red carpet and sat next to co-star Nick Kroll during the showing.

Kroll and Styles also drew attention at the premiere after the singer kissed the comedian during a standing ovation for the film.

In “Don’t Worry Darling,” Pugh plays a 1950s suburban housewife who begins to suspect that it’s getting dark on the edges of her cookie-cutter neighborhood. Styles plays her husband and Pine plays the founder of a mysterious company.

The Warner Bros. movie hits theaters on September 23.
