After drinking all night, the pair ended up at a golf course where Bieber goaded Sheeran into taking a swing at a golf ball teed up in Bieber’s mouth. “I was pretty hammered,” Sheeran said. “And I was like, ‘Focus, focus focus. You can’t hit him. You can’t hit him. You can’t hit him.'” And like most experiences combining drinking and swinging a golf club at someone’s face, this one did not end well.
“I ended up cracking him across the face,” Sheeran said. “He was actually really cool about it, surprisingly. He was like, ‘Ow, bro, ow,’ and then just carried on.”
