Mark Wahlberg was ready to tear tween king Justin Bieber’s hair off his head. Luckily he was just joking… we think.
Mark Wahlberg stars in the new movie The Fighter but in real life he was ready to get physical with pop singer Justin Bieber. What did the tween star do wrong? He promised to call Mark’s 7-year-old daughter, Ella Rae, because she was in the throws of Bieber Fever. But, when the girl’s phone never rang, Mark, who has four children with wife Rhea Durham, was ready for revenge.
“I get him on the phone and I was like, ‘Hold on, I got to get her on the three way,’” says Mark. “He was supposed to call on the first day but he was busy, he didn’t call, she was so upset, she was devastated crying.”
Mark couldn’t stand the sight of his little girl’s tears. “It was almost to the point where I was like, ‘If this kid doesn’t call, when I see him, I’m going to snatch that hair off his head!’” Mark joked. At least we hope he was joking because the 39-year-old Boston-born star looks like he could do serious damage to the Biebs’ mop top.
After the call, it didn’t take long for Ella Rae to get over her crush on the singer because he was caught kissing Selena Gomez. But now Mark has another man to worry about. “She saw it on the news, ripped the picture down, was all upset, said, ‘I don’t like Justin Bieber anymore.’ She liked some guy Mitchel Musso or whatever. Some other guy I’m going to have to strangle,” he says about the Hannah Montana star.
Oh no! Run, Mitchel!
