Justin Bieber ordered to report for deposition or face arrest in paparazzi suit
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.
