Orlando Bloom tried to punch Justin Bieber: report

Singer Justin Bieber performs at Staples Center during his Believe Tour in Los Angeles, California in June 24, 2013.


Now here's some news to kick start your day: Orlando Bloom allegedly tried to punch Justin Bieber at a nightclub in Ibiza.

TMZ is reporting the English actor allegedly threw a punch at the Canadian pop star at the popular Ibiza club Cipriani early Wednesday morning - and claims two eyewitnesses watched the entire ugly event go down.

The amateur video of the near-brawl doesn't actually show Bloom throwing the punch, but takes place immediately after the alleged confrontation.

And what might be the reason behind the alleged altercation? All signs point to Bloom's soon-to-be ex-wife, Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr.

A separate eyewitness in Ibiza told Us Weekly that Bieber stirred up trouble at the club by bringing up Kerr's name in Bloom's presence, which may have led to things getting physical.

As the gossip goes, Bloom and Bieber have been unfriendly with each other ever since Biebs was spotted getting flirty with Kerr backstage at a Victoria's Secret Show in 2012.

Not surprisingly, when Bloom and Kerr announced their intention to separate in 2013 - after four years of marriage and a baby son together - the tabloid press chalked the split up to Kerr's case of "Bieber Fever."

But wait, the plot thickens.

Only four months ago, Bloom, 37, was seen hanging with Bieber's on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez, 21, at a comedy show in Los Angeles. Photos of the odd couple instantly sparked dating rumours.

A few hours after last night's nastiness in Ibiza, Bieber, 20, attempted to get the final word by posting a picture of Kerr to his Instagram account.

Soon after, Bieber deleted the photo showing Kerr in an orange bikini.

And perhaps the best part of the latest chapter in Bieber's life: TMZ claims that the singer immediately departed the club following last night's alleged confrontation – prompting the other club patrons to break into applause.
