Ed Sheeran has revealed he once clocked Justin Bieber in the head with a golf club.
The revelation – which will no doubt be to the joy of many – came about during an interview with The Guardian.
The scene was less dramatic than an all-out brawl, though – the incident happened while the two were in Japan. And Sheeran was drunk.
The singer said:
We’d been out to a dive bar. [Bieber] just drank water and I got hammered. Then we went to a golf course, and he lay on the floor and put a golf ball in his mouth and told me to hit it out of his mouth. I was like, ‘Fuck, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung. And you know in films when someone gets punched, and you hear that fake sound, like a slap? But in real life when someone gets punched, you hear that dull thud, a bit sickening? I heard a sound like the last one.
“I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those ‘What the fuck?’ moments,” he said.
An honest accident, but there’s no doubting that Ed Sheeran has probably made a fair few anti-Biebs happy with that story.
