Justin BieberJustin Bieber will be deposed and questioned about an attack on a photographer.

The "Baby" hitmaker, who is being sued for allegedly instructing his bodyguard to attack Jeffrey Binion and take his camera after he took photographers of the 19-year-old star outside a recording studio in Miami last June, had tried to block the paparazzo's lawyers from interviewing him about the incident but a judge dismissed his appeal, according to documents filed in the city's Third District Court of Appeal last Tuesday.

"Miami Judge Sarah Zabel initially denied Bieber's requests to stop Binion's lawyers from deposing him and asking questions about other incidents involving him and his varied bodyguards' aggressive behavior. Although Bieber's lawyers appealed the judge's rulings, the appeal was denied. Bieber can no longer hide. Binion's lawyers are waiting for a deposition date to be set in Miami," a source said.

The judge also denied the Canadian star's request to stop the public's right to view his scheduled videotaped deposition.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Rumors

Justin BieberJustin Bieber was reportedly caught on tape at the time of the egg attack on his neighbor's house.

New surveillance footage showing the "Boyfriend" singer near the property in Calabasas, California - which suffered an estimated $20,000 of damage in the incident - when it was hit by eggs last month is being considered as critical evidence in the case against the star.

According to gossip website TMZ, Justin isn't seen holding any eggs but he is reportedly heard shouting abuse at his neighbor. In the short clip, a man thought to be Bieber is heard shouting, "F**k you! I got another one for you actually." However, sources close to the star have disputed the authenticity of the video, which is too dark to clearly make out the "Baby" hitmaker.

The reports come after the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department passed the case on to the Los Angeles County District Attorney and strongly recommended that the "Beauty and a Beat" singer be punished to the fullest extent of the law. The District Attorney is expected to make a decision on the case - which was originally filed as a misdemeanor but could become a felony due to the extent of the damage - in approximately one week.

Scott Disick Suing Mercedes-Benz

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Legal Issues, Rants, Rumors

Scott DisickScott Disick is suing Mercedes-Benz.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has filed a lawsuit against the auto company, alleging it sold him a "virtually useless" 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG because the vehicle is constantly breaking down.

In legal documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, the 30-year-old failed restaurateur said that the car, which costs $190,000 new, is unreliable and has spent more time in a repair shop in Los Angeles than on the road. Scott is accusing Mercedes-Benz of failing to make the car roadworthy after numerous attempts and is seeking a full refund plus expenses.

News of the lawsuit comes after a difficult few months for Scott, whose father, Jeffrey Disick, died in early January, less than three months after his mother, Bonnie, passed away from cirrhosis of the liver. "[Scott is] very, very sad. The whole family is trying to comfort him. Everyone's upset. To lose both parents so close together, it doesn't seem fair," a source close to the star said.


District Attorney Not Pursuing Assault Charges Against Kanye

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Television, Legal Issues

Kanye WestWhile he may be fighting with his Kim Kardashian as to whether or not their daughter North will appear on reality TV, Kanye West at least won't have to worry about facing assault charges anymore.

The Los Angeles District Attorney has decided not to go forward with prosecuting the "New Slaves" rapper over an alleged assault that occurred earlier in the month. Criminal defense attorney Troy Slaten - who is not involved in Kanye's case - speculated that this outcome could happen due to the fact that the alleged victim failed to show up for a follow-up interview with authorities: "If they don't have a cooperative victim, the case is harder to prosecute. If you have no victim, it would most likely get dismissed."

The alleged incident happened in Beverly Hills on January 13th, where Kanye reportedly responded (with his fists!) to a young man who was spewing racial slurs at the paparazzi and Kim Kardashian when she arrived to meet her fiance.

When asked her opinion of Ellen - who married Robert six weeks before he died in 2003 - Kim said, "She is a slippery snake... I dislike her. I think that she -- I don't agree with her decisions as of late. And I didn't agree with her decisions when she wouldn't give us back property or ever since she married my father, I haven't agreed with her decisions. I feel like there was an agenda there -- but I don't think about Ellen. I don't spend my time worrying about her, because I try to be a positive person. Everyone is pushed to a limit, and no matter how positive you are, you can look at someone and say, wow, they are a slippery snake, they make awful decisions that are hurtful."
