Orlando Bloom says he’s being hailed for his “heroism” by Justin Bieber haters.
The British actor allegedly got into a physical altercation with the pop star at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza early Wednesday morning.
Various media reports claimed Orlando threw a punch at Justin during the argument.
And The Lord of The Rings star, 37, was reportedly partying with Leonardo DiCaprio at Lio Ibiza in the island’s capital after the alleged incident this week when he told UK newspaper The Mirror: “Everyone keeps telling me I’m their hero”.
The actor already appears to have shrugged off the drama, even while swathes of his fans took to Twitter to pledge their allegiance, including actress Alyssa Milano, who was among those tweeting hashtag: “#TeamOrlando.”
The outlet reports Orlando ran up to Leo, greeting him with a huge hug and yelling: “Aaaaaah! Maaaaate!”
The pair then reportedly sang along to Candi Staton’s 1976 single Young Hearts Run Free and partied into the night.
According to The Mirror, Justin has meanwhile been seen out with Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik, as well as pals Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez, who were seen soaking up sun and jet-skiing around the island with the pop star.
Reports suggest Justin and Orlando’s alleged brawl broke out after the Baby hitmaker made a derogatory remark about the actor’s ex-wife, model Miranda Kerr, who Justin befriended during her marriage to Orlando.
The singer appeared to respond to media scrutiny by posting a image of Miranda on Instagram, followed by a picture of Orlando looking as though he was crying. The image was later deleted from Justin’s page.
Further rumors of a love triangle persist, with most recent reports suggesting Orlando has been seeing Aussie Erica Packer, the ex-wife of billionaire James Packer, who is reportedly dating Miranda.
