Orlando Bloom reportedly took a swing at Justin Bieber at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain, early Wednesday morning. “Taking a swing” is also known as “throwing a punch” or “trying to introduce your fist to someone’s face” or, since in this case Bieber was the punchee, “fulfilling everyone’s greatest fantasy.” Orlando apparently did not complete said punch, however, since Bieber is reported to have ducked out of the way just in time. But the confrontation, in addition to Bieber’s Instagram response later, is just making his rumored 2012 hook-up with Orlando’s then-wife Miranda Kerr look more likely.
Thanks to The Daily Mail, we can watch footage of the incident, but the video unfortunately ends just as Orlando appears to take the swing.
The Mail reports that, according to a source, “Justin was being cordial, and everything was fine. But then Orlando was annoyed when he saw it was Justin and instigated by taking a swing at Justin.” People apparently intervened to separate them, and “Justin stayed for a while after.” However, TMZ reports that he “fled the restaurant.” They also report that Bieber at some point said to Orlando, “What’s up bitch?” And when Bieber left, the crowd allegedly applauded. In case you needed any more proof of how hated he is.
But it doesn’t end there! Things got juicier. Bieber later posted a photo of Miranda Kerr to his Instagram with just a crown symbol as a caption. He of course deleted it after a few minutes, but obviously there are screenshots. So does this confirm that Miranda really did cheat on Orlando with Bieber back in 2012, when they were rumored to have gotten close at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show? It’s definitely looking more likely. In which case, I have one word for Miranda, and that word is “ew.”
Let’s also not forget that Orlando was spotted hanging out with Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez in April, which led to rumors that they were hooking up. This continues to be one of the strangest celebrity sagas in recent memory, and there is simply not enough popcorn in the world to enjoy it properly.
