It sounds like Miranda Kerr is stuck in the middle of a nasty brawl! In the early hours of July 30, Orlando Bloom swung at Justin Bieber in a brawl at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza, Spain, after the singer reportedly made a comment about hooking up with Orlando’s ex, Miranda! Burn!
Orlando Bloom, 37, and Justin Bieber, 20, have two very important things in common — their exes. After the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in October 2012, Justin hung out with Orlando’s then-wife, Miranda Kerr, 31, and the two reportedly exchanged flirty text messages — a factor that may have led to Miranda and Orlando’s split in October 2013. So when the actor and singer came face-to-face in a restaurant Spain, Justin reportedly commented on hooking up with his wife, prompting Orlando to take a swing at him!
Justin Bieber’s Diss To Orlando Bloom
“Justin was at one table, and Orlando was at another,” a source told Page Six. “But when Bieber and his party were later walking past Bloom’s table, Orlando refused to shake Bieber’s hand. Bieber said something rude to Orlando, like, ‘She was good.’”
Ouch! Meanwhile, Page Six‘s other sources claimed that Justin wasn’t aware the Pirates of the Caribbean star was even there until Orlando began “being an a-hole.”
He made the comment about Miranda, causing Orlando to swing, one source claimed — while another said that the comment was made after Orlando swung. Regardless, we saw the swing happen in a shocking video posted on TMZ! The source also added that the crowd cheered when Justin quickly left the restaurant, even though they were quickly split up by their entourages.
Justin Bieber: Did He Start The Altercation?
An eyewitness to the whole thing told HollywoodLife.com that it appeared that Justin “purposely bumped into Orlando on his way in and made it look like he didn’t.”
Then came the swinging.
“The swing was a punch motion but in mid-throw Orlando realized what he was doing and pulled back, making it look awkward and something that didn’t connect,” the eyewitness added.
There has been tension for years between Justin and Orlando as they’re, in a way, living in a love square. Justin didn’t only hang out with Miranda, but Justin’s on-again off-again fling, Selena Gomez, actually hung out with Orlando in April 2014 at Chelsea Handler‘s stand up show in Inglewood, Cali.
Plus, we know Justin wasn’t exactly apologetic after the brawl! He took to Instagram immediately to share a super sexy pic of Miranda, with his favorite emoji as a caption: a crown. He must have realized pretty quickly that this wasn’t a good move — he deleted it just a few minutes after posting.
Are you keeping up with the love square, HollywoodLifers? Fans are freaking out on Twitter! Do you think Justin’s comment was too rude and pushed Orlando over the edge? Or do you think Orlando was out of line for swinging? Let us know!
