Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom’s longstanding feud finally came to blows on July 29, when the two had a scuffle while in Ibiza, Spain. Following the brawl, the notorious bad boy took to social media to show that he clearly wasn’t over it. Now, an expert is weighing in and telling HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what Justin’s behavior could mean.
Justin Bieber, 20, and Orlando Bloom‘s feud came to a surprising head when the duo bumped into each other while dining at Cipriani restaurant. Things turned violent after Justin made a rude comment about the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr. Now an expert tells us what the men’s violent behavior was really about!
Justin Bieber Behavior — Expert Weighs In On Social Media Use
Justin and Orlando may have had problems that stemmed back years, but no one expected the two to actually get in a physical fight. Back in 2012, it was rumored that Justin and the famous model hooked up following the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and even reportedly exchanged flirty text messages.
Expert psychologist, and host of VH1’s hit show, Couple’s Therapy , Dr. Jenn Berman weighed in on what really caused these two to take their feud to the next level.
“It seems like a lot of testosterone, two guys who are feeling very alpha male, who are feeling protective of various different women involved, and I think there is a lot of ego going on.” Dr. Jenn said, “Both are trying to assert dominance and their impulse control is low.”
When things get too intense, the host gave a few tips and pointers of how to regain control.
“I think in general, when you find yourself acting out and throwing punches I would suggest staying away from anything that would intoxicate you, including alcohol, and if you find yourself acting or being aggressive you need to work through your issues with therapy.”
Following the brawl, Justin took to his Instagram to send a very clear message to Orlando that this fight was not over. Uploading a picture of Miranda in a orange bikini, the star kept the feud going, but did eventually take down the pic.
Then, just a few hours later, the biebs made another dig at the actor by posting a picture of him crying to his Instagram!
“Often child stars, like Justin, are highly developed in certain areas, but can be less emotionally developed when it comes to social skills and impulse control.” Dr Jenn said, “I imagine someone on his team told him to take down the pix because it makes him look vengeful and adolescent.”
This fight was clearly out of control, but who is really at fault?
Dr. Jenn said, “While Orlando shouldn’t have crossed the line and gotten physical, I think that Justin was pushing for it.”
Justin Bieber And Orlando Bloom’s Love Triangle
As if this already intense feud needed another complicated element, Orlando has recently been spotted hanging out with Justin’s ex, Selena Gomez.
Luckily, Selena was nowhere near either of the boys during their fight. She was busy promoting her upcoming film with Nat Wolff, Behaving Badly. Although she was not involved it did not stop her from feeling “embarrassed” over Justin’s actions.
Let’s just hope that this feud is over!
