Leonardo DiCaprio cheered on as Orlando Bloom tried to punch Justin Bieber, according to a report. The “Inception” star clearly showed which side he was on during the British actor and the Canadian tween singer’s scuffle in Ibiza early Wednesday morning.

Bloom and Bieber were in the Spanish island’s Cipriani restaurant when witnesses claimed they came to blows. The “Lord of the Rings” star apparently tried to punch the young singer, but Bieber was able to duck.
Bieber’s entourage then quickly stepped in, allowing him to escape the place.
Reports as to how and why their fight started circulate online. One theory is that Bieber, who became “close” with Bloom’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr back in 2012, implied that he slept with the Australian supermodel when she was still married to Bloom.
Another report claims that their fight somehow involved Bieber’s on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez’s name.
Whatever the cause of their publicly brawl was, people in the restaurant were clapping at the spectacle, and there was at least one Hollywood A-lister who was cheering for Bloom.
A source told The Mirror that when Bloom tried to attack Bieber, DiCaprio was “flipping out.”
And there was more than one punch attempt involved.
Anastasia Skolkova told the UK paper that she was in the restaurant with friends, and was on the table next to Bloom and DiCaprio. The restaurant had a few more celebrities present, including Lindsay Lohan, Erick Morillo, and Diddy.
“Justin said something when he came in which was aimed at Orlando, who then jumped onto a sofa to try and get at Justin,” she said. “It was amazing. Everyone stood up and started watching it like it was a show and clapping. There were actually two moments when it turned violent, it wasn’t just the one punch thrown.
“DiCaprio was flipping out and Lindsay Lohan was trying to call them. Justin’s face was amazing.”
It’s not surprising that DiCaprio wasn’t on Team Bieber.
In June, it was reported that DiCaprio brushed off Bieber at the Cannes Film Festival when the crooner expressed his desire to pose with him for pictures.
“Leo thinks Justin’s a little twit. Leo doesn’t want or need photo ops with publicity-hungry, manufactured pop star,” a source told Star Magazine.
Hours after their fight became public, Justin posted a sexy photo of Kerr on his Instagram account, followed by Bloom’s photo, in which he is seen overcome with emotion and in the verge of crying.
Reactions online were mixed, with the singer’s loyal Beliebers predictably siding with him. The rest of the Netizens, though, are clearly on Bloom’s team.
