Earlier today, the paparazzi caught Justin Bieber out and about and just as he was heading to his car, they asked the singer abut that post about fighting Tom Cruise! As you may know, Justin challenged the actor to a fight but now, he says it was all a joke.
Apparently, the thought just randomly came to him and wanted to share it with the world.
As for the reason why he would not actually fight the action star, Bieber admitted that he knows the older man would beat him.
So when the paparazzi wondered if he was serious, Justin explained: ‘Nah, I was just playing.’
He went on: ‘I’m pretty sure Tom would probably whoop my as ** in a fight. I’d have to get in some good shape. I’m really skinny right now. I think he’d probably be out of my weight class. You know, he’s got that dad strength.’
Justin also told the paparazzi that it was just a random thought that popped into his head while watching an interview of Cruise’s and thought it was funny enough to share with his followers.
The ‘challenge’ was posted on June 9 and reads: ‘I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you don’t take this fight you’re scared and you will never live it down. Who’s willing to put on the fight? @danawhite?’
As you can see, he even tagged the UFC chief!
And Bieber was not done trolling! He later on posted a cut scene of Tom’s character in Far and Away fighting his opponent, only he had Justin’s head edited onto his body!
