Justin Bieber

Storms Out of Depo

Over Selena Questions

3/7/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber lost his cool under oath Thursday, when a lawyer started peppering him with questions about Selena Gomez ... TMZ has learned.

Bieber sat for a 4 1/2 hour deposition in Miami in connection with a lawsuit filed by a photog who claims last June Bieber sent his hired muscle to beat him up.

The contentious lawyer for the bodyguard drilled Bieber on a variety of subjects, but things spun out of control when Selena Gomez was raised.

The lawyer started asking if Selena was present during any incident involving fights with photogs.  Bieber's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, felt the lawyer was just trying to get a rise so he objected.  But the lawyer persisted and asked again ... Bieber was fuming and Weitzman jumped in and said his client was being harassed.

The photog's lawyer asked about Selena again, and at that point Justin and Weitzman stood up and left, and as Justin was leaving he screamed, "Don't ask me about her, do not ask me about her!"

Five minutes later they returned but things got even hotter.  At one point Bieber responded to a question with the word "Yeah."  The lawyer said, "Do you mean yes?"  To that Bieber responded, "What the f*** is the difference between yeah and yes?!"

A short time later Bieber fired back, "What is this, "60 Minutes?"  At another point he responded to a question by saying to the lawyer, "OK Katie Couric, what's your question again?"

And even TMZ got in the act.  The lawyer showed Bieber multiple TMZ posts, and the singer accused the lawyer of having an obsession by constantly surfing TMZ for Bieber stories.

And finally ... the lawyer asked Bieber if he has a prescription for Xanax, and Bieber responded, "No."

TMZ you are proud that you are treated as a joke? Congrats. Anyway, I'm no Bieber fan, but I read depositions every day in my job and I see much worse reactions than his all the time. Considering this lawyer did ask questions just to annoy him, I'd say he did ok.

Who's lawyer asked the question? The photographer or the bodyguards? And if Salina wasn't there, what does she have to do with this case anyway?

And the lawyer proves he's a p. i. s. s. y little punk who gets upset easily. Mr Biebs fell right into that.

Put him on Judge Judy; she'll straighten him out on the difference between "yeah" and "yes." He's a silly little twit, full of inflated self-importance.

Hopefully this deposition was recorded or transcribed so it can be used during the trial. It provides Biebers character traits as a human being in society. It also reflects that Bieber has no self control which does not benefit his lawyer Weitzman handling his case.

You know, if you simply answer the questions then it the multiple times of asking the question stops. It's simple. Obviously not for Bieber.

Selena has literally nothing to do with the situations or anything that he was in there for.. they are literally just out to get on his nerves at this point. Pathetic.

Not sure which should come first, Proactive or Rehab! I don't think he can multitask. Maybe rehab will help both! Kids with entitlement never stand a chance!
