Justin Bieber Loses His Cool During Deposition
On Thursday, Justin Bieber blew a gasket when a lawyer began asking him questions about his former girlfriend, Selena Gomez. TMZ first reported the issue, in which Bieber sat through four-and-a-half hours of a deposition in Miami.
The deposition was in relation to a lawsuit filed by a photographer who claimed Bieber sent hired muscle to beat him up in June.
Bieber was grilled on multiple subjects, but he lost his cool when questions about Gomez arose.
The opposing lawyer asked Bieber is Gomez was with him when any photographers were beaten. The singer’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman, said that the lawyer was trying to get a rise out of Bieber, so he raised an objection. The lawyer asked the question again, which caused Bieber to become even more steamed.
Weitzman then claimed that Bieber was being harassed during the deposition.
The lawyer for the photographer decided to ask the question again, causing Bieber and Weitzman to stand up and exit the room. When Bieber left, he screamed, “Don’t ask me about her, do not ask me about her!”
The pair returned a couple of minutes later, but things got even more testy. Bieber answered a question with “Yeah.” The opposing lawyer then said, “Do you mean yes?” Bieber answered that question with, “What the f*** is the difference between yeah and yes?!”
Bieber used some very creative responses to questions, including, “What is this, “60 Minutes?” He also responded with, “OK Katie Couric, what’s your question again?”
Bieber also said that he does not have a prescription for Xanax when asked.Justin Bieber Loses His Cool During Deposition by Jim Vassallo
