The Justin Bieber-Orlando Bloom fight, which occurred at a restaurant in Ibiza in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, should’ve got its 15 minutes of tabloid glory before disappearing into the ether. The celebrity press can always count on something crazy and Bieber-related every several weeks to replace the latest episode.
But then came blurry video of the actual Legolas punch, which can be seen below. And then came the juicy bit that The Mirror dropped that detailed that Bloom had a particular high-profile friend egging on his bout with Bieber.
From the tabloid:
Leonardo DiCaprio CHEERED after his pal Orlando Bloom tried to take a swing at Justin Bieber in a restaurant in Ibiza.
Anastasia Skolkova, a model and journalist from Spain, who broke the story on Facebook and Twitter, exclusively told 3am that The Great Gatsby star appeared overjoyed after Orlando tried to hit Justin and began APPLAUDING his close friend.
“When Orlando punched Bieber, everyone started clapping. People were shouting, ‘What a show! Justin and Orlando fighting. What a show!’ Lindsay [Lohan] was laughing. It was amazing. The whole table he and DiCaprio were on were clapping. Afterwards, I don’t know if people were congratulating Orlando or trying to calm him down.
That Leo was clapping it on should give this story an extra leg or two for another day. However, we should note that we encourage more celebrity-on-celebrity fights in public, especially if it’s reportedly over a Victoria’s Secret model.
But for those who consider this in their wheelhouse, Gawker has a nice little graphic that sums up how and why Bieber and Bloom came to blows in the first place. It’s pretty neat.
