The 20-year-old singer had to dodge a punch from the 'Lord of the Rings' star at a party in Ibiza yesterday (30.07.14) after reportedly making a reference to the actor's ex-wife Miranda Kerr - who he was romantically linked with during their marriage - but his pal insists his misdeeds can be put down to his youth.
Speaking on Australia's 'The Morning Show', he said: ''Obviously we're all young and he gets himself into some stuff sometimes.
''He's a person I'd go to for everything. He's like a big brother.''
And despite the 'Believe' singer's controversial antics - which have also included numerous run-ins with neighbours over his wild partying - Cody insists he does a ''lot of good'' for people.
He said: ''He has the world in his hands as he does a lot of good as well. I've got all good things to say.''
Justin and Orlando got into a row at swanky Ibiza restaurant Cipriani after the 'Baby' singer reportedly told the actor, ''Say hi to Miranda for me,'' prompting him to take a swing at the young star.
Miranda's lawyer previously said that rumours she cheated on Orlando - with whom she has three-year-old son Flynn - with the 'Confident' singer after the Victoria's Secret fashion show in 2012 were ''false and defamatory.''
