Justin Bieber was angry that A-list star Leonardo DiCaprio “flicked” him off. The Canadian tween heartthrob was reportedly so upset about DiCaprio’s snub that he lashed out at Orlando Bloom, leading to their infamous Ibiza fight on early Wednesday morning.

As previously reported, DiCaprio was clearly on Bloom’s side when he cheered on the British actor while he tried to punch Bieber several times.

It turned out he wasn’t just a happy spectator in the scuffle; he was perhaps the reason why Bieber got hot-headed and lashed out at Bloom, who was sitting on the same table as DiCaprio and their friends.

Spanish model Anastasia Skolkova was seated at a nearby table when she witnessed how Bieber disrupted the stars’ quiet evening when he walked up to their table.

“Bieber said something to DiCaprio – I don’t know exactly what because it was seven or eight metres away,” she told the Mirror.

“Leo brushed his hands at him, like, ‘I don’t care what you say.’ Yeah, he flicked him away.”

Bieber then “got angry,” but Bloom got even more so.

“When Bieber walked maybe 10 metres away, Orlando maybe had half a minute to think about what he was going to do,” Skolkova claimed. “He got up and started running. Then he jumped over the sofa.”

According to several reports, Bieber made snide comments about Bloom’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr, who became “close” to him during a Victoria’s Secret party in 2012.

“She was good,” Bieber apparently said, as quoted by the NY Post, implying that he slept with Kerr.

While Bieber took his fight public by posting a sexy photo of Kerr and a picture of Bloom crying on his Instagram account, Bloom and DiCaprio appeared not to have given him much thought after that.

The Hollywood hunks’ friendship blossomed even more following the Bieber incident, and witnesses said that they partied with some friends later on.

“Everyone keeps telling me I’m their hero,” the “Lord of the Rings” star allegedly said of the fracas.

He may be right, though. Loyal Beliebers predictably sided with Bieber on this fight, but the rest of social media, including celebrities, appear to be on Bloom’s team.
