Ed Sheeran has admitted he once hit Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club following a night out in Japan. Take that time he got wasted and hit Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club: “We were in Japan. We’d been out to a dive bar. He just drank water and I got hammered.

I was like, ‘F**k, I need to aim this properly,’ and I swung.” Sounds about right. But the “Sorry” singer has clearly forgiven Sheeran, helping him write recent chart-toppers “Love Yourself” and “Cold Water.”
