Justin Bieber Berates Female Court Worker During Testimony Hearing
Troubled pop star Justin Bieber has sparked more controversy by hurling a foul-mouthed remark at a female court worker during an interview.
The Baby hitmaker is already facing severe criticism over his behavior when he was quizzed by lawyers earlier this month over a photographer assault case.
Footage shot at the hearing shows Bieber growing increasingly petulant as he is asked questions about his life and career, and a new clip obtained by TMZ.com shows the moment the star blew his top.
After mumbling the answer 'Yes' to a question, Bieber snaps when a female worker politely asks him, "I'm really sorry to keep asking you this but can you please speak up?"
The singer responds, "I think 'Yes' and 'No' are pretty different."
His lawyer immediately tries to calm the star and places a hand on his arm as the legal teams agree to take a short break.
The testimony hearing in Miami, Florida on March 6 was held in connection with photographer Jeffrey Binion's lawsuit, in which he accuses Bieber's bodyguard of choking him and ordering him to delete images from his camera.
