As previously noted, the Ibiza scuffle between the two male stars reportedly began because of a rude remark made by J.B. about Bloom's ex-wife, suggesting that he was alluding to the rumors that began circling in 2012. The "Beauty and a Beat" singer was the performer at that year's Victoria's Secret show and caught up with the buxom model backstage.
The two seemed friendly but reports began speculating that there was something more to their natural chemistry together. Kerr was married to Bloom at the time, and her lawyers released a letter saying that any implications of their client hooking up with the bad boy singer were "false and defamatory."
A source now tells E! News that, "They were all out partying until early morning and the group went back to the hotel," speaking of the 2012 fashion show. "Bieber and Kerr were acting flirty throughout the course of the evening."
However, it seems like after the pair met at the show, the singer attempted to keep in contact with the model. "Since their already infamous hang out, Bieber has tried to reach out to Kerr several times," the source continued, "but she didn't entertain his attempts at maintaining steady contact—they texted a bit here and there. He was very persistent."
As for Kerr's contact with ex-husband Bloom, the insider tells us they talk every day for their son, Flynn, and have spoken since the fight earlier this week.
"Kerr speaks to Bloom every day because of their son. They did speak since the incident between Bieber and Bloom but did not talk about it as it's just all about their son. Kerr wants all of this to blow over. She is in Europe now just trying to relax with her son."
Another source told E! News exclusively earlier today, "[Miranda] is in Spain and Europe now and is vacationing with the family and relaxing. Miranda wants all of this behind her and she just wants to move on from this and go about her life. She is very embarrassed about everything that has gone on."
