Justin Bieber just got dealt a big setback in court.
A judge in Miami has ruled that Bieber and his bodyguards' apparent history of attacking photographers is admissible as evidence in a photographer's lawsuit that alleges a Bieber bodyguard choked him and stole his camera in June.
According to TMZ, Bieber is being sued by photographer Jeffrey Binion. Bieber's lawyer wanted the court to limit the scope of the singer's deposition to the incident alleged by Binion in the lawsuit. But Binion's lawyers want to question Bieber about five supposed similar attacks allegedly involving Bieber.
The website reported the judge said the previous incidents are fair game.
In court documents, Binion cites a pattern of events, including a scuffle with a Miami photographer just hours before Binion was supposedly attacked, an alleged attack on an Argentine photographer on Nov. 11, an alleged beating of a Hawaii photographer on Nov. 20, an alleged Australian photographer attack, and an another incident at an IHOP.
I could be wrong, but it seems that Justin Bieber has issues with photographers.
In other Justin Bieber news, the incident last Thursday that involved Bieber allegedly throwing eggs at his neighbor's house caused around $20,000 in damage, according to TMZ.
He probably has that much money in between his couch cushions.
Police are investigating the incident. Beiber's neighbor says the 19-year-old singer threw at least 20 eggs at his house, while having an expletive-filled exchange with the neighbor.
Law enforcement sources reportedly told TMZ that L.A. County Sheriff's deputies are fast-tracking the investigation and told the neighbor to get them repair estimates by Monday.
The website said the entire front of the man's house has to be replastered, which will cost around $15,000. There's reportedly another $5,000 in damage to the entry, including various doors that must be re-stained.
Law enforcement sources told the website the case will be referred to the L.A. County D.A. for possible vandalism charges. Since the damage exceeds $400, the case could be filed as a felony, according to the website.
