What the flipping heck is going on between Orlando Bloom, Erica Packer, James Packer and Miranda Kerr?
Even the blokes at my work couldn’t stop talking about it today.
I was absolutely gobsmacked when the pics of Orlando and Erica at the beach surfaced. WTF?
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock and missed the not-so-subtle nuances … Orlando and Miranda broke up … James and Erica broke up … rumours swirled that Miranda and James Packer had hooked up … and now Orlando pops up on the Spanish party island of Ibiza with James’ ex wife.
And then it all got waaaaaaay more interesting when Orlando took a swing at Justin Bieber at Cipriani restaurant that night, while Paris Hilton, P.Diddy and Lindsay Lohan looked on.
The theory behind the tiff is that there’s bad blood between the pair because of rumours that Justin went on a date in 2012 with Miranda, while Orlando was recently spotted with Justin’s on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez.
Justin apparently greeted Orlando with the words “What’s up bitch?” then possibly made some remark about Miranda’s bedroom prowess.
Orlando took a swing’ at Justin, but he ducked and fled, while other diners at the restaurant broke into applause.
Or, as former Spanish journalist Anastasia Skolkova, told The Mirror:
“Justin said something when he came in which was aimed at Orlando, who then jumped onto a sofa to try and get at Justin.
“When Orlando punched Bieber, everyone started clapping. Lindsay was laughing. It was amazing. The whole table he and DiCaprio were on were clapping. Afterwards, I don’t know if people were congratulating Orlando or trying to calm him down.”
Later, Bieber posted a picture on his Instagram account of Miranda wearing a revealing swim suit. Hideous man-child. He followed it up with a shot of Orlando crying.
And Erica and Orlando have since been spotted cuddling on a private yacht.
Stay tuned …
