Justin Bieber has said Tom Cruise is “toast” after jokingly reviving an earlier bid to fight the Hollywood icon

Bieber first released the bizarre challenge in June 2019, trying to secure the services of UFC chief Dana White to organize the fight

“I want to challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon Tom, if you don’t take this fight you will be scared and will never live it out. Who is ready to take the fight?” @danawhite? “, Wrote Bieber at the time

But just days later, Bieber admitted it wasn’t a good idea, admitting, “I’m pretty sure he’d punch my ass in a fight, I should be in good shape, I really am now thin ”

“I think he probably wouldn’t be in my weight class Because he’s tall you know he has his father’s strength”

However, Bieber has now apparently revived the offer after releasing the music video for his latest track “Anyone” in which he plays the role of a prize fighter

While it’s likely Bieber wasn’t * too * serious about the offer, it has the support of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

Referring to an iconic line by Rocky, The Rock commented, “You’re going to eat lightning and crap”Go and get them (sic)”

But it did little to instill the confidence of Bieber’s mom Patty Mallette, who commented, “WHY !!! ???????”

It comes after Bieber worked with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir last month to receive a new charity version of their single “Holy”

The collaboration took place five years after Bieber tweeted his support for the choir’s successful offer to become the UK’s Christmas number 1 with “A Bridge Over You” instead of his own track “Love Yourself”
