Justin Bieber Backs Down From Fight Challenge


Justin Bieber on Wednesday said what most of us were already thinking after he publicly challenged Tom Cruise to a fight.

“I’m pretty sure Tom would… I think he would probably whoop my a** in a fight,” Bieber told paparazzi in L.A.

On Sunday, the 25-year-old Canadian pop star tweeted that he wanted to “fight in the octagon” with Cruise, 56. “Tom if you dont (sic) take this fight your (sic) scared and you will never live it down,” he wrote.

In video posted on TMZ, Bieber said he was “just playing” when he made the challenge. “It was just a random tweet,” he said. “I do that stuff sometimes.”

Bieber conceded that Cruise would likely prevail. “He’d probably be out of my weight class. He’s got that dad strength.”
