Leonardo DiCaprio has insulted Justin Bieber many times. And this was before the Orlando Bloom scuffle where Bieber got hit in the nose by Orlando.
When Bieber walked in Cipriani and got into a tiff with Orlando, Leonardo supposedly flicked him away from his table as he was approaching them.
The few seconds before the brawl were captured on film by Spanish model, Anastasia Skolkova. The reason behind Bieber and Orlando’s rough and tumble affair was a rude comment Bieber passed about Orlando’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
Everything seemed to be going on normally as usual when suddenly Orlando and Leo who were seated at the same table began to have altercations with Bieber.
That proves that Leonardo is no Belieber either. Bieber passed a remark to Leo and Leo just brushed him off like he was an annoying fly.
The point of extreme tension was reached when Bieber started on about Miranda Kerr. His commentary got ruder and ruder and Orlando got angrier with each passing second.
Finally, when he could not take it anymore, Orlando lashed out at Bieber and hit him in the face with his fist. By the time Bieber was within hitting distance, Orlando made his move and succeeded in inflicting some much-deserved damage.
Leo too egged Orlando on in his pursuit of vengeance. “People were quiet, just having their dinners. Leonardo DiCaprio was sitting with Orlando at their table. It was a big table, they had a lot of friends,” 20-year-old Anastasia Skolkova told The Mirror.
“Everything was quiet and then suddenly, people had cameras out. Then it was like dinner with a show. Bieber said something to DiCaprio - I don’t know exactly what, because it was seven or eight metres away. Leo brushed his hands at him, like, I don’t care what you say. Yeah, he flicked him away.”
“Bieber got angry. Orlando got very, very angry. When Bieber walked maybe 10 metres away, Orlando maybe had half a minute to think about what he was going to do. He got up and started running. Then he jumped over the sofa."
This is not the only time Leo has behaved in an offhand manner with Bieber. He reportedly refused to see him at the Cannes Film Festival some time back.
There was even an event at which Justin was fooling around and wanted Leo to come to his side and dance and party alongside with him.
But when he sent his bodyguards towards Leo to ask him for the favor, Leo just said “no” in a casual and indifferent manner which sent Bieber packing.
Bieber was left looking like a fool for his gratuitous move. He will be more careful the next time he meets Leo.
