Justin Bieber, who is currently touring in Europe, has been asked by the court to return to Florida to give a video-taped deposition over the 2014 bodyguard lawsuit.
The 22-year-old singer has been given a deadline of 30 days to get back to Miami, or else a writ of bodily attachment will be issued and deputies will be sent to collect him, as reported by TMZ.
As the Grammy winner is currently rocking the European leg of his Purpose tour, it’ll be pretty hard for him to disrupt the concert schedule; his shows are supposed to continue until the end of November. Justin must appear for the case in which he was sued by a photographer for ‘unspecified damages.’
Pap named Manuel Munoz sued the Canadian singer after Bieber’s bodyguard, Dwayne Patterson, allegedly chased him down the tourist street, tripped him and damaged his camera. The incident took place back in January 2014 in front of a night club, after the pap clicked a photo of Justin Bieber.
Bieber has now been asked by the judge to testify the claims as Munoz’s lawyer wants to question him bout his former altercations. Munoz now seeks compensatory damage for his loss at the hand of Bieber’s bodyguard.
Justin Bieber wasn’t around at the time, as the singer himself was arrested due for DUI, careless driving and resisting arrest. Earlier in March, the singer also settled another personal lawsuit with a pap, Jose Osmin, whom he kicked and punched in the face back in 2012. The case got settled earlier this year and the trial was called off.
