Harry Styles Is NOT Buying A Vineyard And Making His Own Wine, Despite Report
Harry Styles is not buying a vineyard, despite a newly published story. Gossip Cop can exclusively report that the claim is all wet. The tale began in one of the British tabloids, and was quickly picked up by a slew of lazy outlets that didn’t bother to fact-check the story.
According to Daily Star, Styles wants to buy a winery in California, possibly near where his friend David Beckham has a vineyard. And the One Direction singer is supposedly willing to pay big bucks, too. The newspaper says Styles wants to be like other stars who make their own red and white wines, and maybe even one day produce wines that “rival those of French chateaus.” Ooh, la la.
The paper then quotes a so-called “guest” at Styles recent birthday party in L.A. as saying, “He was talking animatedly about buying a vineyard in the Santa Barbara area where Paul McCartney owns a big property,” adding, “Becks was giving him plenty of advice and it was obvious he was the one who planted the idea in Harry’s head.” Wait, that’s not the end of the phony quotes. The same Daily Star source conveniently adds, “Now Harry’s turned 21 he can not only legally drink in bars in America, he is also entitled to own a working winery, which he thinks would be a blast.”
Daily Star then rattles off a list of celebrities who own vineyards (and some who actually don’t) before its so-called source alleges, “This is a project he’s really keen on pursuing solo,” and “he reckons it would be classy to have labels saying something like Styles Winery.”
Gossip Cop looked into this, and the tabloid’s source may have had a glass or two too many, because Styles is NOT looking to buy a vineyard and make his own wine. His rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “There’s no truth to this rumor.” We’ll drink to that!
Of course, Daily Star is the same paper that said Styles was giving up sex, becoming a helicopter pilot, learning Hebrew, leaving One Direction, and even had to apologize to the singer for making up a cover story alleging he was in a “X-Rated Sex Pic” scandal. Once again, the tabloid should not print what it heard through the grapevine.
