Orlando Bloom Tries To Punch Justin Bieber
Orlando Bloom allegedly tried to take a swing at Justin Bieber this week after the singer reportedly called him a bitch.
The incident is said to have happened in the early hours of Wednesday morning outside a restaurant in Ibiza, fuelling speculation that Justin and Orlando’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr became close while they were still married.
According to reports, a source said: “Orlando was clearly annoyed when he saw Justin and instigated the situation by taking a swing at him.
“Luckily for both of them Justin ducked so Orlando’s punch missed.”
The insider added: “Within seconds people intervened and there was some minor pushing and shoving between their entourages.
“They were eventually separated and Justin, who was being cordial, stayed for a while longer outside the restaurant without incident.”
TMZ also reported that the attempted punch took place after the 20-year-old – who was arrested for a DUI in Miami earlier this year – asked Bloom, “What’s up bitch?.”
Meanwhile, Page Six quoted one source as saying: “Justin was at one table, and Orlando was at another. 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,’” the source added.
Rumours surfaced that Miranda and Justin became close in 2012 after meeting at a Victoria’s Secret show that Miranda was modelling in and Justin was performing.
It was even reported that the pair enjoyed a date together.
And clearly attempting to irritate the situation further, Bieber took to his Instagram shortly after the incident and posted a picture of Miranda in a bikini.
He simply captioned the picture with a crown before swiftly deleting the picture minutes later.
Justin has been hitting headlines over the past few years for an array of bad behaviour.
Most recently, the hit maker was set to be charged with criminal vandalism after egging a neighbour’s house, causing more than $20,000 worth of damage.
He was also arrested in January when police officers claimed to have caught him and pal Khalil drag racing on Miami streets in the early hours of the morning.
He was originally charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest, reckless driving and driving without a valid license.
