Well, this is one way to gain fans. Orlando Bloom did what most everyone wants to do to the Bieber. Take a swing. Luckily for both parties involved, Bloom missed and the two were separated by their respective entourages. See, this is why you bring Gimli along. Not only is he Justin Bieber’s height, this could have made for some awesome TMZ footage.
So, what was the fight about? The two sides have differing accounts, but Bloom’s camp says it was due to Bieber making some disparaging comments about his ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
It all started when Bloom didn’t shake hands with the 20-year old singer as Bieber and his entourage passed by Bloom’s table. Bloom was eating with Leonardo DiCaprio at the time. Witnesses say that the actor refused to speak with Bieber. And here’s where the stories diverge.
On one hand, Bloom’s camp said Bieber made a remark about Kerr, while Bieber’s camp telling Page Six. “Justin didn’t even know Orlando was there. But when they saw each other, it was Orlando who was just being an a–hole to Justin.”
Other sources seem to back Bieber, saying Justin was being cordial until Bloom took a swing at Justin. That’s when Bieber started to mouth off at the actor. In the end, it was just a shouting match with plenty of famous onlookers.
The two have been at odds with each other. Bieber was rumored to be trying out his game with Kerr backstage at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in 2012. Bloom, for his part, has befriended Bieber’s ex, Selena Gomez. After the incident, Bieber Instagramed a modeling photo of Kerr, which he has since deleted.
Welcome to the Internet age of stupidity. Yeah, this is all extremely childish, but it’s the latest in a string of incidents involving the young singer.
