Lawyer explains Justin Bieber deposition questions about Selena Gomez

When Justin Bieber was asked about Selena Gomez during his deposition last week, the first words out of his lawyer's (Howard Weitzman) mouth was "what is the relevance." Many have asked that since; the answer was posted by TMZ on Wednesday.

Bieber's deposition was in connection with a lawsuit filed by a photographer, Jeffrey Binion, who claims that last June Bieber's bodyguards attacked him while he tried to take pictures of Bieber outside Miami's Hit Factory recording studio. Binion is represented by attorney Mark DiCowden.

DiCowden grilled Bieber about Gomez last week, and in new legal documents the reason is now clear. He wrote in the filing that he asked Bieber about Gomez because he believes she witnessed Bieber attacking a photographer in May of 2012, which sets a pattern of behavior that he hopes to prove.

The section of his deposition covering Gomez is embedded.

During the interview, Bieber went ballistic and walked out. Eventually, he came back.

It's unclear why he was acting lovesick. The day after the interview, on Friday, he and Gomez reunited.

In addition, DiCowden reportedly is asking the judge in the case to remove Bieber's lawyers on the grounds they were obstructing the interview.
