I’m sorry to disappoint all the Justin Bieber fans in our audience, particularly the ones who were hoping to see the 25 year-old pop star throw hands with Hollywood actor, Tom Cruise, because the Beebs recent callout was nothing more than a random tweet.

Played up for laughs.

“I was just playing,” Bieber told TMZ. “It was just a random tweet. I do that stuff sometimes. I think he would probably whoop my ass in a fight. He’s got that dad strength.”

I’m sure the only person who is truly disappointed in this news is former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who was hoping to use the Bieber-Cruise undercard to settle his longstanding beef with Mark Wahlberg.

Bieber is no stranger to combat sports, having previously pal’d around with UFC President Dana White. The Canadian “traitor” was also a staple in the Floyd Mayweather Jr. walkouts back in the days of “Money” fights, for reasons not quite explained.

In other stupid news, President Trump referred to Prince Charles as “The Prince of Whales” and Brits are losing their minds.
