Pop star Justin Bieber is scheduled to blow into town about 2 a.m. Thursday for two Independence Day weekend shows at AmericanAirlines Arena in downtown Miami.
So, he’s got a couple days off?
He only wishes.
The 22-year-old singer of I’m Sorry has a date with a bunch of lawyers at on the 37th floor of One Biscayne Tower for what could be an eight-hour ordeal on Friday.
Eight hours, or his full and complete answers to more than 100 legal questions, whichever comes first.
Bieber is set to be deposed in a lawsuit brought by a Miami photographer who says he was attacked by the singer’s bodyguards in January 2013, when he took photos of Bieber with a woman who wasn’t his on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez.
Before the deposition begins, according to legal documents, Bieber’s lawyers are going to ask Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Jerald Bagley to limit the scope of the questioning and make sure the video of the grilling doesn’t get released to the media.
Bagley is supposed to render his order on time for Friday’s depo.
Neither John Bond Atkinson, Bieber’s attorney, nor Mark DiCowden, paparazzo Manuel Munoz’ mouthpiece, returned calls for comment.
