Justin Bieber turned the tables on his pal Miley Cyrus by pulling a prank on her for TV's Punk'D - when the actress thought she was playing a trick on him.
The former Hannah Montana star had organised a stunt to embarrass Bieber for the MTV series, but the Baby hitmaker decided to teach Cyrus a lesson after discovering her plans.
In the premiere episode, Bieber tells Punk'd viewers, "She thinks she is hosting the show, so she is going to punk me. She's not punking me because that's not possible. I can't be punked."
He hired two actors to engage in a pretend brawl with him in a skate park to make Cyrus assume her own scheme - to subject Bieber to a tirade of abuse by passers-by - had gone terribly wrong.
Cyrus could be seen gasping in horror as Bieber flew into a rage and shoved one of the stuntmen to the ground, before throwing fake punches and kicking him in the stomach.
The singer/actress then began to panic about the fight until Bieber revealed it had been staged - and teased his pal for being so gullible, telling her, "You can't punk me. That was all fake!"
Bieber also pranked his pals Sean Kingston and Taylor Swift in the first episode of the ninth season of Punk'd, which aired in the U.S. on Thursday (29Mar12).
