Bloom punches out Bieber, earns a round of applause

It wasn’t exactly a rumble in the jungle, but actor Orlando Bloom settled for some bile on the isle as he slugged pop nuisance Justin Bieber at an Ibiza restaurant early Wednesday morning.

TMZ’s ring announcers said the celebrity catfight started after Bloom rebuffed Bieber’s offer of a handshake at a chic eatery on Spain’s notorious party island.

“What’s your problem?” Bieber allegedly exclaimed, which Bloom answers with a right hook in a video clip from Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet.

It might possibly have had something to do with Bieber being romantically linked with Bloom’s ex-wife, Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr, and Bloom stepping out with Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez in April.

Bieber flounced out of the restaurant after the scuffle, drawing cheers from an assemblage of partygoers including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and P. Diddy, TMZ says.

But not everybody approved of Bloom’s behavior.

“He threw a bitch punch!,” UFC Hall-of-Famer Forrest Griffin told TMZ.

Griffin says he expects better from the “Hobbit” actor.

“He can come to Vegas anytime to train with me,” Griffin said. “If they ever fight again, I can show him some moves so he can win.”

Bieber might have set up Round 2: he later tweeted a photo of Kerr and an old picture of Bloom crying.

Jessica Barrymore, daughter of actor John Drew Barrymore and his fourth wife, was reportedly found unresponsive in the driver’s seat with pills scattered next to her. A homeowner checked on the 47-year-old after finding the car blocking the driveway of her San Diego-area home.

“Although I only met her briefly, I wish her and her loved ones as much peace as possible, and I’m so incredibly sorry for their loss,” Drew Barrymore told People magazine.
