Justin Bieber will reportedly be forced to explain his alleged “bad habit” of attacking paparazzi at an upcoming deposition.
The 19-year-old pop star is being sued by paparazzo Jeffrey Binion, who claims one of the star’s bodyguards choked him and stole his camera equipment in Miami last June.
According to TMZ, Justin’s legal team has lost its bid to limit the scope of his deposition to this case alone.
The outlet claims Jeffrey has received permission from the presiding judge to reference past alleged altercations between Justin, his team and other photographers.
According to legal documents obtained by the website, the plaintiff will build his case against Justin by showing the star has “a bad habit” of attacking photographers.
“Binion runs through the laundry list in his newest court docs - citing 1) the run-in with a Miami photog just hours before Binion, 2) the alleged attack on an Argentinian photog on November 11, 3) the alleged beating of a Hawaii photog on November 20, 4) the alleged Australian photog attack, and 5) the infamous IHOP debacle,” the outlet claims, referencing an incident last month at a Los Angeles restaurant that resulted in a photographer filing a battery report against the star.
A spokesperson for Justin has not commented on the latest development.
The case continues.
