Our story about Justin Bieber's rather contentious deposition hearing in the lawsuit involving his bodyguard or bodyguards allegedly beat up a photographers now has video evidence. TMZ obtained video footage from the hearing, and posted it on Monday.
The deposition took place last week, and the report, then, of Bieber's behavior at the hearing was that he was goaded into it by his opponent's lawyer. Some of it, we noted, was when Jeffrey Binion's lawyer started peppering Bieber with questions about Selena Gomez.
The deposition itself took 4 1/2 hours to complete. However, TMZ picked out four different attitudes during the deposition that stood out -- in a negative way, naturally.
Due to embedding limitations, only the clip regarding Selena Gomez is directly embedded. All four clips can be found here, however.
1. Arrogance and contempt: He's rich and therefore privileged, right? Bieber goes to extremes to show that he's above some others, and definitely above the lawyer of Jeffrey Binion (the photographer who sued). The snippets show the attitude he carried throughout the deposition.
2. Lovesickness: The portion of the deposition that really peeved Bieber, involving Selena Gomez questions showed that Gomez is still a tender subject. Will the two reunite? It is probably up to Gomez as the actions of Bieber show that he would probably take her back in a second.
3. Contentiousness: Here is the section of his deposition (which we discussed in our original report) when he compares the interview to a "60 Minutes" report. At one point he calls the lawyer "Katie Couric."
4. Disrespect: When asked about Usher, Bieber pretends he doesn't know him, saying "Usher? That sounds familiar." The most hilarious part was when Bieber said, "I was found on YouTube. I think I was detrimental to my own career." Some have said his recent actions have indeed been detrimental to his career.
