Justin Bieber jumped the gun in his deposition Friday ... and in the process admitted he was taking
Rx meds illegally.
As you know, Justin is being sued by a photog who claims the singer instructed his bodyguard to beat him up.
During the questioning, the photog's lawyer asked Bieber if he had a prescription for Xanax. Before Justin's lawyer could object, the singer blurted out that he did not.
Justin's lawyer was clearly upset and told Bieber to hold his horses before answering.
It's a significant question ... because during Justin's DUI arrest cops say he admitted his mom had given him Xanax, and he tested positive for Xanax which is the basis for the DUI charge.
It probably won't impact the case. If Bieber was under the influence it doesn't matter whether he took it legally or not.
But it wasn't the smartest thing for him to say.
Like You've Never Seen Him ... And It's Bad

Justin Bieber can be insulting, arrogant, snotty, ignorant and disrespectful ... and all in one sitting -- because that's exactly what he was like during his deposition last week in the lawsuit where his bodyguard allegedly beat up a photog.
TMZ obtained a copy of the entire 4 1/2 hour, videotaped depo ... and it's just unreal. We've boiled it down to what we think are the best 4 clips.
1. ARROGANT BIEBER -- He just can't hide his contempt for the photog's lawyer, and it comes out in pretty awful ways. We put some snippets together and you'll get the idea. It represents his attitude throughout the depo.
2. LOVESICK BIEBER -- Selena Gomez is clearly a hot button, because when the lawyer asks about her, everyone goes nuclear. Bieber eventually rips his mic off and he and his lawyer storm out.
3. CONTENTIOUS BIEBER -- He compares his interrogation to being grilled by Katie Couric or "60 Minutes." Simply hilarious.
4. DISRESPECTFUL BIEBER -- When asked if Usher discovered him, Bieber disses his mentor and says he was actually discovered on YouTube. The best part ... he clearly was trying to say he himself was instrumental in his success, but instead he says, "I was detrimental to my own career."
Truer words have never been spoken.

Channing Tatum's got brown hair ... but he had a real blonde moment in L.A. last night.
Tatum was gassing up his vintage pick-up when we asked about the head transplant research going on in Italy right now -- seriously, it's a real thing.
We asked Channing if he could put his head on any person's body in the world ... which body would he pick? It was a pretty straightforward question, but Channing's answer ... just listen for yourself.
And right when you think the situation couldn't get any dumber -- our camera guy takes it to a whole new level.
My GF Is a Frickin' Baller!

Matthew Stafford's girlfriend is a MONSTER on the basketball court ... sinking 3-pointers like the female Reggie Miller (only she's way hotter than Reggie) ... and she's got the video to prove it.
The Detroit Lions QB hit the gym with Kelly Hall recently ... and fed her the rock over and over as she hit 4 threes in a row from various sports on the court
Aaaaand ... when she was done heating up the hardwood, Kelly put on her yellow bikini and hit up Mexico with the girlfriend of NFL draft prospect Blake Bortles (in the purple bottoms).
Maybe Brent Musburger was right ... it's good to be the quarterback.
'Marriage Boot Camp' Hubby
I Got Gay Men Off
... For Money

Porn has ripped marriages apart before ... but not like this.
TMZ has learned, one of the husbands from Season 2 of "Marriage Boot Camp" once did porn for a gay website called "Straight Guys for Gay Eyes."
Shaun Sulligan -- porn name Johnny Walsh -- shot two scenes for the website back in 2009 ... one sex scene with a woman and one solo masturbation scene.
It's pretty unusual -- the website basically markets straight sex to a gay male audience ... focusing on the man's body instead of the woman's. But hey, whatever floats your boat.
Sources close to the show tell us, Shaun's porn past has become a sore subject in his marriage and will be addressed on the show.
FYI, Shaun shot the porn the same year he met his wife Sofia -- we're guessing she's not too happy about that.
Fails to Kill at Gun Show

George Zimmerman has figured out a way to exploit what made him famous -- GUNS.
Zimmerman did a meet-and-greet Saturday at an Orlando gun shop. People lined up for an autograph pic of Zimmerman and his dog ... actually only around 20 people lined up.
It's a page out of the OJ playbook ... get acquitted of killing someone, and then show up places and sign autographs.
One funny thing ... the pic Zimmerman signed is clearly from days past, when he weighed 50 lbs less ... and that's being generous.
Vanity ... it's not just for good people.
A Mash-Up Study In Exaggeration
3/10/2014 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber sighs, grunts, gesticulates ... and is generally ornery during his marathon deposition Friday.
We've combed through the entire 4 1/2 hour depo -- where he's being sued for allegedly ordering his bodyguard to open up a can of whoop ass on a photog.
The mash-up is representative of all of Bieber's antics as he did everything humanly possible to avoid answering questions.
On one level he comes off incredibly unlikeable, but when you put some of the classic moments together it's kind of hysterical.
Laughing It Up
With K. Fed's Preggo Wife
3/10/2014 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Federline has his very own first wives club -- Britney Spears (wife #1) and Victoria Prince (wife #2) got on like a house on fire Sunday ... laughing and chatting at Britney's son's soccer game.
It was the ideal picture of divorce -- Kevin and Britney (who split in 2006) each took their significant others to their son Jayden's soccer game in L.A. Britney took her current boyfriend David Lucado ... and Kevin took his pregnant wife Victoria.
As we reported, even Kevin and David are pals.
Gotta hand it to Kev and Brit -- they've figured out post-divorce life in a way most people don't.

Khloe Kardashian showed Lamar Odom what he was really missing out on Friday in L.A. -- rocking an ass-high pair of denim cutoffs on her way to a Rick Ross concert ... as well as the tallest hooker boots known to mankind.
Kendall Jenner and Scott Disick were there too -- but Khloe's voluptuous assets obviously stole the show ... even her boobs made an impressive appearance.
No wonder OJ Simpson hit it (allegedly).
Finally, a Kardashian sister we can really get behind.

Justin Bieber viciously attacked the one person in his deposition who didn't have a dog in the fight ... the soft-spoken court reporter, who he essentially called a f***ing moron.
Justin sat for the 4 1/2 hour depo in connection with a lawsuit filed by a photog ... who claims Bieber ordered his bodyguard to beat him up.
During the depo, Justin was asked if Usher was instrumental in jump-starting his career. He answered faintly, "Yeah." The court reporter was having trouble hearing, so she asked him to speak up.
Justin hurled the f bomb at her. You just gotta hear it.

Paula's Softening On Reconciliation
3/10/2014 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke has made significant headway in his campaign to win his wife back, because multiple sources directly connected to the couple tell TMZ ... Paula Patton is open to giving him another chance.
We're told Robin and Paula never stopped communicating. They talk constantly, but she was very clear the day she dumped him ... she wanted a DIVORCE.
Our sources say the tone of the conversations has changed, and the 2 of them are now talking about what Robin needs to do to convince Paula that the marriage can work to her satisfaction.
She has not hired a divorce lawyer, we're told, and has no plans to do so. We're told their phone conversations have been productive. But here's what hasn't been productive ... she's not impressed with Robin's on-stage pronouncements of love.
She is impressed that Robin has been a good dad since the split, seeing their kid when he can and keeping in touch when he's on the road.
As for the tone of the conversations ... we're told "smooth and cordial." We're not exactly sure what smooth means, but you know, they're both very ... smooth.

Bruce Jenner was out and about this weekend ... looking like his old self.
Bruce was leaving Starbucks in Westlake, near the family homestead in Calabasas. Even though Bruce and Kris have separated and he's planted his roots in Malibu, he's still spending lots of time with the fam.
He had just finished a round of golf ... part of his daily routine. And he's decked out in his standard golf issue.
BTW ... he's one of the best golfers at the Sherwood Country Club.
