And now, a statement from Brian Wilson's million-dollar beard: "I DON'T CARE HOW MUCH MONEY'S ON THE TABLE ... NOBODY'S CUTTING ME!"
Thank you, Beard.
Despite a flurry of reports the Dodgers pitcher was in negotiations to shave his famous facial hair for a six-figure payday ... Wilson's reps tell TMZ, the Beard was never in jeopardy.
The crew over at MVP Sports Group tells us they never took the razor company's offer seriously because Brian refuses to even trim his trademark, and, in fact ... he's told them the beard is "going with him to the grave."
So, keep calm Blue Crew -- the Beard abides.
