Things are looking “Superugly” for Orlando Bloom right now.
Bloom was taunted by Justin Bieber, who posted a photo of his estranged wife Miranda Kerr briefly on Instagram Tuesday, after Orlando tried to punch him during an unexpected run-in at Cipriani in Ibiza.
A source close to both stars tells BOSSIP, “Justin didn’t even realize it was Orlando at first until he said something smart to him.”
Things took an ugly turn when Bieber asked about Bloom’s estranged wife Miranda Kerr.
“He said, ‘Tell Miranda what’s up’,” the source tells BOSSIP of the moment when Bloom snapped and tried to jump on the younger entertainer.
According to our source, Bloom’s anger stems from Bieber’s history with Kerr, a flirtation detailed in the tabloids last year after word got out that the supermodel (who was already a big fan of the Biebs before the two met that night) had a fling with Bieber following Victoria’s Secret’s 2012 runway show. Miranda’s friends snitched she’d even taught her and Bloom’s son to say “Bieber Fever.”
After learning of their liaison Bloom tried to settle the score in April of this year by pursuing Selena Gomez, but the tactic didn’t work.
“Orlando is salty because Justin was f*****g Miranda last year,” the pal told BOSSIP. “He [Bloom] went and tried to mess around with Selena and she wasn’t really with it. She already knew Justin was cheating and wasn’t interested anyway.”
But despite the “homewrecking” infraction, our source says Bloom’s anger is being misdirected.
“He should be mad at Miranda — she’s the one who went after Justin. She actually was kinda thirsty…” the source dished. “She was sending him crazy text messages, pictures. Some of them were nudes.”
Ouch. That’s got to hurt.
TMZ reports that, for her part, Miranda continues to deny ever having sex with Bieber:
Miranda Kerr did NOT sleep with Justin Bieber after the 2012 Victoria’s Secret fashion show … so Miranda claimed at the time as did her lawyer.
Miranda’s lawyer sent out a letter at the time rumors swirled that Miranda and Justin hooked up at a hotel after the show … when she was still with Orlando Bloom. The letter calls such claims “false and defamatory.”
We’re told Kerr was as adamant as her lawyer at the time … that she did NOT hook up with Bieber.
Apparently Orlando Bloom didn’t buy the story. The couple separated the following year. And it’s very clear from the story we posted Tuesday night … there’s beef between Justin and Orlando over Miranda.
As for Justin … sources connected with the singer say he got all braggy when he talked about Miranda … which of course does not necessarily mean he was telling the truth.
So she’s denying sleeping with Biebs that night, but what about on other occasions?
Poor Orly… We hope he doesn’t drown his sorrows in the bottle — you know they say he be getting super slizzed.
Do you understand where Orlando Bloom is coming from now or is he only making matters worse for himself?
All we can say is… watch your back Biebs!
