Justin may have come off as rude and flippant during his March 6 deposition, but he’s here to remind us that he, too, has been disrespected. The paparazzi called the Biebs all kinds of nasty names on the day he allegedly ordered his bodyguard to attack a photographer — including the C-word!
Justin Bieber reveals in his deposition tape that the paparazzi “harassed” him and called him names in an attempt to get a rise out of him in Miami last summer — and it worked. Watch the shocking video right here and let us know what you think!
Justin Bieber’s Paparazzi Case: Biebs Called The C-Word In Attack Video — Watch
We 100 percent do not condone Justin’s bad behavior, but we couldn’t help but feel a little sorry for him when he gave us a glimpse into his daily life during his deposition.
“I had been, like I said, harassed several times [by the paparazzi],” Justin, 20, says softly in the video. They were “calling me names, getting in my way, physically, on purpose to get a reaction out of me.”
The paps got the better of the Biebs that day, something that he willingly admits in the depo. “I let them, you know, get a reaction out of me,” he says after a lawyer plays a tape of Justin fending off photogs last summer. “As you can see, that’s a reaction.”
So what kinds of names did the paps throw at the Biebs?
“I heard c*nt,” he reveals. “I heard multiple dirty words that I don’t feel comfortable saying right now.” Ouch — those are fighting words!
Justin Bieber Disses Usher: Singer Gives Mentor No Credit For Success
Despite the paps’ cruel insults, Justin has been making it pretty hard for us to feel truly sorry for him. He did some dissing of his own in the deposition, slamming his one-time mentor Usher and saying the veteran R&B artist did not contribute to his success.
When asked if Usher had discovered him, the Bieb replied, “I was found on YouTube and I think I was detrimental to my own career.” (The word he was searching for was instrumental, but that’s a whole different story.)
So HollywoodLifers, do you think Justin has a right to be angry about the paparazzi’s name-calling? Let us know!
