The Biebster had taken to Twitter to offer The Cruise a Celebrity Deathmatch of sorts and swiftly got his digital dues.

Since the rather bizarre challenge was laid down, Justin has had time to reflect on his folly.

He suggested Cruise would be “scared” if he didn’t take the fight and would “never live it down”.

TMZ (a tabloid news websitecaught up with the chart-topper and asked him about the what on earth he was thinking and the star quickly clarified the remarks.  “Man... I was just playing, it was just a random tweet, I’m pretty sure Tom would probably whoop my ass in a fight,” he said.

“I’d have to get super in shape, I’m really skinny right now. I think he’d probably be out of my weight class. He’s got that dad strength.”

There were many who were looking forward to seeing what would happen, in a sense of morbid curiosity. I guess we'll never know.
