It appears Justin Bieber got a bit hot under the collar yesterday during a civil deposition in Miami and snapped during the four-and-a-half hour questioning.
TMZ reports the pop star -- who was deposed regarding a photographer's lawsuit claiming Bieber's security team assaulted him last June, chocking him and demanding he delete his photos -- was irked when the line of questioning turned towards Selena Gomez.
When asked by the lawyer if Gomez was around when any alleged assault regarding a photographer transpired, Bieber was reportedly "fuming." Bieber's lawyer Howard Weitzman objected to the questions stating they were being used to rankle the singer and his client was being harassed.
The lawyer representing photographer Jeffrey Binion continued, causing Bieber and Weitzman to leave, with the pop singer reportedly yelling, "Don't ask me about her, do not ask me about her!"
Bieber returned but the cooling off period didn't do the trick. When Bieber replied "Yeah" to a question and the photographer's lawyer replied, "Do you mean yes?" Bieber fumed, "What the f--k is the difference between yeah and yes?!"
Shortly afterwards Bieber tried to get a few more jibes in regarding the line of questioning. "What is this, '60 Minutes?'" Bieber said at one point, and later snarked, "Okay Katie Couric, what's your question again?" (For the record Katie Couric worked on the weekly CBS program 60 Minutes from 2006 until 2011.)
Finally, when asked if Bieber had a prescription for the drug Xanax, Bieber replied, "No."
There's no word if the deposition will continue today or is completely finished. Bieber has made no statement on social media regarding what transpired or the deposition, but was filmed leaving the building while a small group of cheering female fans waited outside.
News of the deposition follows reports yesterday the singer sold her Calabasas, California home to Khloe Kardashian for $7.2 million.
Also, Bieber is scheduled to be in Toronto for a hearing over assault charges involving a limo driver.
