“We were in Japan. We’d been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered,” the “Shape of You” singer explained. “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.” (For the record, this sounds like a terrible idea. Please never do this.)
Sheeran continued, “I was like, ‘F**k, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung.”
Of course, being intoxicated, the Brit’s aim was less than stellar.
“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?” he asked. “I heard a sound like the last one and saw his security guard looking at me like [he pulls a horrified expression]. I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those ‘What the f**k?’ moments.”
The wild night in question may have happened just last week. Both musicians reportedly went out to a karaoke bar in Japan and ended up performing Bieber’s hit, “Love Yourself,” which was written by Sheeran.
Surely he apologized for the mishap but, if not, we’re going to go ahead and say it’s too late to say “sorry” now.
