Orlando Bloom did something today that we've all probably wished we could do: He allegedly threw a punch at Justin Bieber. Sources tell Page Six both stars were at a hotspot in Ibiza in the wee hours and that things got heated around the time Bieber said something rude about Miranda Kerr, Bloom's ex-wife. Sources disagree, though, on whether the comment came before or after Orlando's alleged attempt at a punch, which sadly missed Bieber. (Hilarious detail: The crowd reportedly cheered after the punch was thrown and Bieber left the scene.)

TMZ explains why there's no love lost between Bloom and Bieber: First there were rumors of a possible flirtation between Kerr and Bieber after a 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show, and then earlier this year, a photo was taken of Bloom hanging out with Bieber's ex (or, depending on the day, not-ex), Selena Gomez. According to one witness, the scuffle started when "Orlando refused to shake Bieber’s hand," and then "Bieber said something rude to Orlando, like, 'She was good.'" But a pal of Bieber's insists the Bieb said nothing and Bloom was "just being an a--hole." Either way, after the fight—which also reportedly involved Bieber shouting, "What's up b----?" at Bloom and possibly telling him to "say hi" to Kerr—Bieber posted, then hurriedly deleted, a picture of Kerr on Instagram.
