The latest on that ORLANDO BLOOM and JUSTIN BIEBER scuffle the other night in Ibiza has it that Bloom refused to shake Bieber's hand when his entourage walked past and that Bieber said something rude to Orlando, like, 'She was good.' That was a reference to rumors that Bieber and Bloom's ex-wife, Miranda Kerr, got intimate while they were still married. However, Team Bieber is saying Justin was being cordial to Bloom when Orlando took a swing and missed and that's when Justin mouthed off to him. Apparently Bieber prefers to fight his battles on Instagram because he later posted and deleted a photo of Miranda and another of Bloom crying. As for SELENA GOMEZ, who was a minor player in the incident because of a rumored brief hookup with Bloom, sources close to her say she's "embarrassed" for Bieber and expects something bad to happen with him every day because of his immaturity.

Australia's Jet Star airline has apologized after an attendant on a Sydney-bound flight warned passengers returning from a music festival that sniffer dogs and inspectors were waiting, and told them to flush "anything you shouldn't have" down the toilet. Apparently some passengers were carrying drugs because the warning reportedly sparked a rush to the lavatories. Jet Star said the crew member had acted unprofessionally and that they would be reprimanded. However, some have taken to Jet Star's Facebook page to urge the company to be lenient to the flight attendant, with one person saying: "Promote that person."

When a tornado swept through Kingsport, Tennessee last weekend, it ruined Jerrod Christian's life. Not only did the tornado damage Jerrod's home, it tossed his belongings onto his lawn. Well, some of the belongings were his. Other belongings tossed from Jerrod's home belonged to the neighbors he stole them from. When those neighbors emerged from their homes to inspect the damage, they noticed their stolen items and contacted police.
