Justin Bieber

Storms Out of Depo

Over Selena Questions

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

0306-justin-bieber-01
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."

Ah, the unraveling begins. May it be public, captured on camera for posterity. Soon, a judge will make her cry. It won't be difficult. Selena Gomez and David Letterman have proved just how easy it is to make her cry. A word of advice Bieberina: use more profanity when addressing judges, lawyers and police officers. Then they will respect you. Be more like DMX.

In my job, I've had to sit thru lots of depo's, and they can be abusive. The attorney can ask almost anything, and they do try to get a rise out of you.

Bieber just learned that "anything goes " during a deposition. I'm not saying the photographer's lawyer is a hero, but just that you can be asked anything during a deposition. It really should just be called "fishing" With that said I think the photographer's lawyer is hilarious.

I don't like this kid but I don't like obnoxious lawyers either. What the hell does it matter if photogs were ever present, everyone in this country knows they were so that lawyer did that to misground him. Just an fyi..when you are giving testimony in court you need to answer right away or you look like you could be lying. In a deposition take your time and think before you answer and dont let these lawyers fluster you. Its not in front of a judge and the answers dont say how long it took you to respond. I hate giving legal advice, I am not a lawyer but I have been in business 20 years and been to court at least 30 to 40 times, usually for clients non paying our invoice. Ironically that was that height of when times were good, now our business is so slow yet I haven't had one client not pay in 5 yrs. But a lot pay late..

There's a problem here    

Send his little white wannabe ass back to Canada. As far as the Xanax script goes, he said his mother gave it to him, so can't they get both of them on some type of interstate transport illegality?
