Justin Bieber has allegedly bragged Miranda Kerr vowed to "make him a man".
The 20-year-old pop star was reportedly attacked by Orlando Bloom in Ibiza last week after Bieber allegedly taunted the actor about his relationship with the model, who split from Bloom last year after three years of marriage.
Various media reports suggested Justin had made a derogatory remark before the fracas.
And UK's the Sunday People reports the pop star has yet to stop making bold claims, allegedly boasting that Kerr had once made the flirty remark about delivering him from boyhood.
Bieber and Kerr reportedly struck up a friendship while the singer was performing at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2012.
UK newspaper The Mirror echoes reports this is believed to be the main reason behind his alleged altercation with Bloom, who reportedly tried to jump over a sofa and punch the pop star after he was taunted.
The Lord of the Rings star was reportedly then escorted out of the venue by security.
Bieber later posted a sexy photo of Miranda on social media, followed by a photo of Orlando appearing to cry, which was later deleted.
"Orlando had heard that there had been some flirting going on and he wasn't exactly over the moon about it, in fact he was furious," a source told the outlet.
"At the time of the split it was certainly one of the motivations. He was, and still is, very cross about all of this. He can't believe that someone he regards as a silly little boy has had this impact on his relationship. He is absolutely fuming."
Bloom is meanwhile still on holiday in Ibiza, where he was recently seen partying with pal Leonardo DiCaprio.
The actor, 37, reportedly joined DiCaprio at Lio Ibiza in the island's capital last week, when he told The Mirror he's being hailed a hero for allegedly putting Bieber in his place.
"Everyone keeps telling me I'm their hero," he was quoted saying.
A spokesperson for Kerr has not commented publicly on the latest claims.
