    13 Times Celebs Were Awkward, Controversial, Or Both This Week

    CELEBS this week = stressing me out.

    If you're like me, you consume a lot of celeb news that involves celebs being awkward, controversial, or both.

    Well, welcome to a new BuzzFeed series, where I brief you on all the times celebs did just that each week. Let's get into it:

    1. Harry Styles was accused of spitting on Chris Pine during the Venice Film Festival:

    In a statement provided to Variety, Chris' reps denied it. "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." Full story and statement here.

    2. Amid the viral Don't Worry Darling drama, Florence Pugh skipped the press conference for the film.

    3. Aaaand it looks like Harry said no to posing next to Olivia Wilde on the red carpet:

    SOMEONE FROM OLIVIA'S TEAM ASKED HARRY TO TAKE PICTURES WITH HER/STAN NEXT TO HER AND HE SAID NO

    The rumored couple was asked to take a photo, but it looks like Harry wasn't here for it.

    4. Courtney Stodden called out Bethenny Frankel on Instagram for her treatment of them on Bethenny's talk show:

    5. Then, Bethenny must've seen Courtney's post and sent her this non-apology apology message, which Courtney shared:

    6. Britney Spears said her son Jayden won't "get anything" after he publicly shared that he has "emotional trauma" because of their relationship in an interview:

    In the above clip — which Britney has now deleted — Britney said Jayden will not "get anything" in two years when he turns 18. Full story here.

    7. The audience at Funny Girl on Broadway went wild when Lea Michele delivered this line:

    People at the show said that the audience erupted when Lea — who's been the subject of a viral conspiracy theory that says she can't read — read the line, "I haven't read many books."

    8. Jameela Jamil spoke out against those saying Lea can't read:

    9. On TikTok, Spencer Pratt said Lisa Kudrow was the worst celeb he's ever encountered:

    10. And then Bethenny Frankel also added that she had a negative experience with Lisa:

    Addison's mom, Sheri, is dating a young rapper, Yung Gravy. The two were spotted kissing at the VMAs. Meanwhile, Addison's dad, Monty, is — well — doing a lot. Full story here.

    13. And lastly, my favorite moment of the week — Harry Styles was asked about starring in Don't Worry Darling and said this:
