Nonetheless, in the picture, Bloom's head is down and he's rubbing his right eye like you would do if you were tearing up.
Video surfaced of Bloom, 37, taking a swing at Bieber, 20 -- then people stepping in to break it up.
This is the second picture Bieber posted involving Bloom following the altercation. Early Wednesday morning he posted and took down a picture of Bloom's ex Miranda Kerr, who is reportedly the subject of the argument between the two celebrities.
In 2012, pictures surfaced of Bieber hanging out with Kerr, then Bloom's wife. Whether the two were taking things further than just being in each other's company was never confirmed by either Bieber or Kerr.
Bloom was also photographed with Bieber's ex Selena Gomez this past April, while the two looked to be taking a smoking break during the night. As with Bieber and Kerr, nothing has ever been confirmed about Gomez and Bloom, other than they hung out.
As of this afternoon, the picture had mixed responses from Bieber's followers on Instagram, including some that asked the singer to take it down, while others defended him.
