Flash forward to 2016, when nude photos of both Bloom and Bieber surfaced online, resulting in an internet response so great, we can already feel Kim Kardashian reaching for her phone to take another selfie.
Two days after photos of the “Lord Of The Rings” actor paddleboarding in the buff with girlfriend Katy Perry made the rounds, The Daily News published pics of Bieber skinny-dipping with model and rumored girlfriend Sahara Ray.
The coincidence of two people who feuded in the past having nudes leaked the same week was too much for social media to handle.
Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom allegedly staging nude shoots is the equivalent of 2007’s Brit/Lilo/Paris “forgetting to wear undies” trend

I hope Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber’s one-upmanship continues and continues and is handed down to through generations.

So @JustinBieber and Orlando Bloom are apparently engaged in some kind of dick battle. Finally some celebrity gossip I can get behind.

That being said, neither Bieber or Bloom has addressed the photos publicly, which makes us suspect the two have another thing in common: being photographed without their consent.
