Justin Bieber has declared Instagram war on Orlando Bloom ... with a pic of the Brit dissolving into tears.
It's Bieber's second Instagram salvo ... hours after Orlando took a swing at him at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza he posted a sexy pic of Miranda Kerr and then quickly took it down.
Miranda -- the Helen of Troy in this war -- was the trigger for the bar scuffle. It's clear Orlando felt Justin was banging her while they were still man and wife.
We'd say there's no use crying over Miranda, but then again ...
How's This for a Release
7/30/2014 2:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Miranda Kerr's body isn't the only thing that's flawless ... so's her timing, because she was officially made the new face of 7 For All Mankind jeans ... hours after she triggered a celeb scuffle.
The newly released 30-second spot is smokin' -- Miranda not only looks amazing ... she sounds SO hot.
The 7 Jeans campaign slogan is diabolically perfect: "He loves her. She loves him, but he can’t have her. She has the power. She is in control."
Helen of Troy ... so 1190 BC.
I NEVER Slept with Justin
7/30/2014 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Miranda Kerr did NOT sleep with Justin Bieber after the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show ... so Miranda claimed at the time as did her lawyer.
Miranda's lawyer sent out a letter at the time rumors swirled that Miranda and Justin hooked up at a hotel after the show ... when she was still with Orlando Bloom. The letter calls such claims "false and defamatory."
We're told Kerr was as adamant as her lawyer at the time ... that she did NOT hook up with Bieber.
Apparently Orlando Bloom didn't buy the story. The couple separated the following year. And it's very clear from the story we posted Tuesday night ... there's beef between Justin and Orlando over Miranda.
As for Justin ... sources connected with the singer say he got all braggy when he talked about Miranda ... which of course does not necessarily mean he was telling the truth.
Miranda posted a photo this afternoon on Instagram of herself topless in a bathtub ... just in case you forgot what all the fuss was about.
Yeah, Brandon and I Kissed, But ...

Kim Kardashian and step-bro Brandon Jenner had an illicit make-out session ... so intimated Brody Jenner, but in reality we've learned there's less here than meets the eye.
Our Kardashian archival sources tell us ... the "kiss" went down when Kim was around 11 and Brandon was 12. Fact is ... Kris and Bruce weren't even married at the time, but they were dating.
The kiss was part of a Truth or Dare game, and it was more like a peck on the lips.
Wow ... Kim learned a lot since she was 11.
Hey Girl ...
You've Been Butlered

Gerard Butler was up to his old tricks this weekend ... engaging in a full-on makeout session outside of Nobu in Malibu Sunday night.
When he finished facesucking the cute brunette in cut-off shorts -- naturally -- they each went their separate ways and Butler rode off alone on his motorcycle.
Another satisfied customer.

Sofia Vergara & Joe Manganiello
Cougar Season In L.A.
7/22/2014 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sofia Vergara and her significantly younger new man Joe Manganiello are officially out of the cage.
The 37-year-old "True Blood" star was out and about this weekend in Studio City showing off his prize catch ... five years his senior.
This is nothing new for Sofia, who's just coming off a similar situation with boy toy Nick Loeb ... they were together for almost 4 years, got engaged and split up last May.
We're not worried about Joe, of course ... if anyone can keep a cougar at bay, it's wolf man.
Happy hunting, Joe.
I'm NOT Banging

Christina Milian made one thing clear Saturday in Glendale ... she's NOT doing the horizontal cabbage patch with Lil Wayne.
The 32-year old singer sauntered into Chris Brown's celebrity kickball game in a killer set of shorts ... and had no problem talking to us about her platonic relationship with Weezy.
Milian recently signed with Young Money Entertainment and Wayne is planning to roll out her music in a big way. They were all handsy a week ago ... but it looks like it was all put on.
Christina wouldn't rule out a relationship with Wayne -- when we asked if she'd date a producer or manager she happened to be working with ... Milian had a very calculated reaction.

7/19/2014 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd Mayweather says he never said he had sex with T.I.'s wife Tiny ... and claims the audio in the footage we posted this morning wasn't clear.
Mayweather tells TMZ Sports ...he ACTUALLY said, "he thinks I was f***ing his bitch."
In the video, Floyd does try to mutter something before the sex line -- but it's hard to make out.
Mayweather adds, "I've never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I think she's a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage."
T.I.'s wife Tiny confirms that statement ... telling us she's never had sexual relations with Floyd -- and thinks he only spoke out at the presser to get revenge for her BET Awards diss.
As for T.I. ... he simply told us, "I hope he is enjoying himself. God bless him."
I Had Sex
With T.I.'s Wife
7/19/2014 8:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd Mayweather apparently concedes T.I. had a solid reason for attacking him in Vegas in May ... because the boxer now proudly claims he had sex with Tiny.
Mayweather was promoting his upcoming fight Friday against Marcos Maidana, when someone yelled, "What about T.I.?" -- referring to the now famous Fat Burger fight.
Listen closely, as Floyd says, "What about the bitch? I was f***ing his bitch."
As we previously reported ... the photos Tiny posted of Floyd and his daughter on Instagram set T.I. off right before the melee ... so he clearly suspected something was up.
Floyd tried to talking to Tiny on the red carpet at the BET Awards ... but she flatly denied him.
1:00 PM -- Floyd tells us the audio wasn't clear ... and claims that's not exactly what he said.
