Justin Bieber mocks 'crying' Orlando Bloom after Ibiza row

Justin Bieber has appeared to mock Orlando Bloom after their altercation in Ibiza, by posting a picture of the British actor apparently crying.

The image shows the Lord Of The Rings star looking down with a hand raised to his eye as if to wipe away a tear.

Footage of Bloom having to be restrained during a row with Bieber in a restaurant in Ibiza in the early hours of Wednesday was published on Celebrity gossip site TMZ.

Reports suggest the confrontation was sparked by comments from Bieber about Bloom's ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor split from the Australian model, with whom he has a three-year-old son, in October after three years of marriage.

The 20-year-old's post has been liked by almost half a million of the singer's 18 million followers.

Following the incident, Bieber reportedly published a photo of Kerr in a bikini on his Instagram page with a symbol of a crown before swiftly deleting the post.
