Finally, an Orlando Bloom plot line everyone can get behind.
Bloom allegedly tried, and failed, to punch Justin Bieber outside Cipriani Restaurant in Ibiza, Spain on Wednesday, TMZ reports. The fight began when Bieber yelled "What's up, bitch?" at Bloom, who then confronted the 20-year-old pop star.
While no one can say for sure what started the feud, there are several rumors circulating that Bieber and Bloom's ex-wife Miranda Kerr, a Victoria's Secret model, briefly dated in 2012, while Kerr was still married. Paparazzi have also caught Bloom hanging out with Bieber's ex Selena Gomez.

And the plot thickens...
Shortly after the fight, Bieber Instagrammed a picture of a bikini-clad Kerr with a crown emoji caption. Bieber quickly deleted the picture.
Within minutes of the reports, Beliebers and Bloomers (is this a thing yet?) went on Twitter to stand their ground. Basically a bunch of tweeny girls defended Biebs saying he was bullied. Meanwhile, the rest of the world bowed down to Bloom for doing what everyone else has fantasized about doing since "Baby" hit the airwaves.
Orlando Bloom tried to punch Justin Bieber in the face so now I guess I have to go see that third Hobbit movie.
