Justin Bieber
's pals Lil Za and Lil Twist acted like Lil Thugs by attacking a paparazzo in Miami last June --  so claims the photog who's suing Bieber and a bodyguard.

Photog Jeffrey Binion says in his depo -- obtained by TMZ --  he was confronted by Za, Twist and 2 of Justin's bodyguards after taking pics of Justin outside of a recording studio.

Binion says Za demanded the photog's camera ... threatened to break it ... then tried to wrench it from his hand. Binion claims the struggle lasted 3 to 5 minutes.  As for Twist ... Binion says he was egging Za on.

Binion also claims one of the bodyguards threatened him with a gun.

Binion says he was strong armed into deleting the photos ... because a bodyguard had him in a choke hold.

He's now suing Bieber and that bodyguard ... claiming he's injured and mentally screwed up.

Bieber is scheduled to give his version in a deposition next month ... and he's already asked a judge to keep his testimony under wraps -- away from the public.

Good luck keeping your testimony under wraps. TMZ sure won't let that happen. Look how quick they got this information.These Lil boys are now going to have to pay a Lil money. He should change his name to Lil Wanker.

Binion is "screwed up" mentally because he was actually taking pics of Justin. WhoTheF**k wants to see that tiny miniature man-boy?

Just common street thugs. I'd love to see them on Beyond Scared Straight. They would cry like babies.

Once again. When Justin f@cks up, blame his two black friends. TMZ has never called Justin a thug.

The little puke grows up wanting to be a singer. He wants to be famous. Wants to be a star.


Then because of 10 yeart-old girls, pouf, he becomes a a star a celebrity.


Then he decides you can't take his picture.

What the hell is wrong with this egomaniac.


Did he think he can have it both ways.


Someone really needs to knock some sense in this kid so he can learn that one goes with the other.


These celebs nowadays are just pieces of garbage.

Why is Justin afraid for the public to hear the truth under oath. What dose he have to hid. He always said the press was making up stories. Dose the truth hurt that bad! Plus the tax payer pays for these court cost, so we do have the right to hear what he says in court.

Why would he not want public to hear him speak under oath? Dose the Truth hurt that bad and I thought according to him it was always the press making up false stories.

I'd be embarrassed to say I was assaulted by these 2, what did these Lil Chihuahuas do bite you on your ankles? How humiliating to have such "menacing" guys assault you and have to ask for help. Why you didn't cave their faces in is the only crime committed in this story.

Three little girl thugs. Put them in jail so the boys can play with them. I'm sure they will enjoy it.
