Justin Bieber Loses Cool Over Selena Gomez Questions in Deposition
Justin Bieber happily reunited with Selena Gomez in Texas, but he's not interested in publicly discussing his "elegant princess."
Well, that was his position while being deposed for a lawsuit involving his bodyguard allegedly roughing up a photographer. New footage of the deposition, which took place March 6, was posted Monday on TMZ and showed the 20-year-old snapping at a lawyer asking questions about Gomez.
The attorney representing the photographer, who claims that Bieber's bodyguard pulled a gun on him in Miami in June, asked whether Justin dated Gomez "at some point" and if they discussed their feelings about the paparazzi. The "Boyfriend" grew visibly annoyed by the questions, let out a deep sigh, and sat with his hand over his face for a moment. He then looked at the lawyer and said, "Don't ask me about her again."
He repeated the same line six times, shaking his finger at the lawyer at one point. His team of attorneys then announced they were taking a break and whisked Justin out of the room.
Other clips from the deposition show Bieber, who wore a white button-down shirt and black patterned jacket which showed off his tattoos, to be frustrated by the process. He swiveled back and forth in his chair, closed his eyes, sighed, and made faces. At one point he called the opposing counsel's lawyer "Katie Couric" and compared the deposition to an interview on "60 Minutes."
While he was visibly annoyed by the line of questioning, things in his personal life seemed to have taken a positive turn after he reunited with Gomez in Texas last week. After posting a photo of her at an Oscar party and calling her the "most elegant princess in the world" early in the week, they met up in McAllen, Texas, on Friday, which we detailed here.
Over the weekend, they were also spotted at a Starbucks, hitting up Action Dance Studio for a two-hour session, and enjoying a game of Xtreme Lazer Tag.
Gomez had two concerts in her native Texas over the weekend, which marked her return to the stage following her January rehab stint. Bieber hinted he was there for her Saturday performance, writing on Twitter, "Saw a great show last night :)."
Early Sunday morning, Justin made a surprise appearance at South by Southwest. The singer arrived at Banger's Sausage House & Beer Garden just after midnight and performed for the crowd.
Bieber looked like he was in his element during the acoustic set, unlike how he appeared during the deposition.
