Comedian Joe Lycett claims Harry Styles still owes him a Kit Kat as payment for painting: 'What do I do?'

"Harry Styles seemingly can’t shell out for a Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter," the comedian wrote.

Well, this has gone from sweet to sour: Joe Lycett is asking Harry Styles to pay up.

The British comedian claimed in a hilarious TikTok on Saturday that the “Watermelon Sugar” singer still owes him a Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter bar as payment for a painting that he made of Styles last year. 

“Okay, first, a recap: last year, I did this painting of Harry Styles where I replaced his head with an egg,” Lycett explained before showing a picture of the painting, which is a riff on David Hockney’s 2023 portrait of Styles. “Unbelievably, he loved it so much that he asked me to buy it.”

The self-trained painter then cut to what appears to be an Instagram direct message from Styles, which he previously posted on Instagram, that read: “I think it’s incredibly important that I purchase this portrait from you. If you’d ever consider parting with this masterpiece, I’d like to hang it in my home immediately. Hope you’ve been well. H.”

So, Lycett explained that he and Styles discussed payment before agreeing upon “the very reasonable price of £6 and a Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter.” He then showed a second previously-posted screenshot that seemingly featured the two haggling back and forth before Lycett’s final offer, which was allegedly hearted by Styles.

“So I sent the painting to the address that he provided, obviously I looked it up on Zoopla,” Lycett said, cutting to an image of the painting in a box alongside a certificate of authenticity that he’d signed. “And I put an invoice in there with a reminder that payment was now due and finally, after quite a lot of nudging, something arrived.”

The video then cut to a clip of Lycett sitting in his garden and opening a package, allegedly sent by Styles, that included a letter and cash. “Joe, it is with tremendous… something, that I attach six pounds and a Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter,” Lycett read. “Thank you, a pleasure. H.”

The only problem? “There was no Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter,” he said. “Harry has now entirely stopped responding to me. God, I feel like Zayn [Malik]. What do I do? What does the note say and where is my Kit Kat?”

Lycett captioned the video, “Harry Styles seemingly can’t shell out for a Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter. It’s not the same as it was…”

Entertainment Weekly has reached out to representatives for Lycett and Styles about the alleged peanut butter payment problem, but did not immediately hear back. However, this isn’t the first time that Lycett has discussed the portrait saga.

Prior to sending over the painting, he previously joked that he'd take legal action against Styles if he didn’t pay him back in an episode of RHLSTP with Richard Herring podcast last October. "I checked with a lawyer on this," he teased. "I'll send an invoice, if he doesn't pay within the 28 days, I'm taking him to the small claims court. I'm gonna do it!"
