Defiant Justin Bieber answers questions in Miami civil lawsuit

March 10, 2014 

A video deposition taken of pop idol Justin Bieber in Miami last week, and released Monday by an entertainment website, shows the singer being belligerent, even storming off when asked about his ex.

The 4 1/2 hour video, part of a civil lawsuit filed by a photographer who was allegedly beaten by one of the singer’s bodyguards outside The Hit Factory in North Miami, shows a defiant Bieber battling with the attorney.

Here are the highlights from the March 6 deposition, according to TMZ: Bieber’s ex-flame, Selena Gomez, is clearly a hot button topic. When a lawyer asks about her, Bieber grows angry and storms off. “Don’t ask me about her again,” he says when he returns.

He goes on to compare his “interrogation” to being grilled by Katie Couric.

When asked if singer Usher discovered him, Bieber says he was actually discovered on YouTube.

He also reveals his limited vocabulary: While trying to say he was instrumental in his own success, he instead says: “I was detrimental to my own career.”

His attorney jumps in and asks for a correction to the deposition.
