During an interview with The Guardian, it was revealed that Ed Sheeran ended up assaulting Justin Bieber with a golf club, which would have been music to the ears of many.
Apparently the event was less dramatic than described though, with the incident happening when the two were in Japan and drunk at the time.
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, ‘F***, 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.”
He said: “I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those ‘What the f***?’ moments.”
Ed Sheeran’s third studio album ‘Divide’ is out NOW and it’s sure to storm straight to the top of the charts.
According to The Guardian, 24 hours after it was released, his single Shape of You had been streamed 6,868,642 times on Spotify alone. It had been streamed 53 million times within one week.
