Ed Sheeran is lucky he can still count Justin Bieber as a friend – especially after smacking him in the face with a golf club.
The Shape Of You singer recalled the horrifying moment he heard a ‘sickening’ thud after drunkenly making his way to a golf course after a night out with the Canadian pop star.
‘We’d been out to a dive bar. [Bieber] just drank water and I got hammered,’ he told the Guardian.
“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.’
Already sounding like a recipe for disaster, a ‘hammered’ Sheeran obliged the unusual request from Bieber and sure enough, chaos followed.
‘I was like, “F**k, 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. I’d cracked Justin Bieber right in the cheek with a golf club. That was one of those “What the f**k?” moments.’
Meanwhile, Sheeran had another, ‘what the f**k’ moment after he messed up a tattoo on Radio 1 presenter Roman Kemp’s leg.
The singer etched the words, ‘Ed woz ere 2k7’ on Roman’s leg – but fas on Twitter were quick to point out that the tattoo already appears to be 10 years old after Ed left off the number one.
One fan asked: ‘2k7 or 2k17??’
Oh dear, Ed…
