Justin Bieber’s legal troubles with the paparazzi continue.

A Florida judge ordered the pop star to report for a deposition in Miami within the next 30 days as a part of an ongoing lawsuit, according to the Associated Press. If the 22-year-old fails to show up for the sit-down, he faces the threat of being arrested and brought into court.

Two years ago, Manuel Muñoz, a Miami-based photographer, filed a lawsuit against Bieber allegedly claiming that the singer’s bodyguard got into a physical altercation with him in a January 2014 incident.

The “Sorry” hitmaker will be in Europe until November for the international leg of his Purpose tour.

This is not the first paparazzi-related lawsuit against Bieber.

In 2013, Miami photographer Jeffrey Binion accused the singer of allegedly instructing a bodyguard to attack him and take his film card. Bieber settled the suit in 2015.
