TMZ acquired footage of Justin Beiber, 20, being depositioned for 4.5 hours by a attorney representing a paparazzo who claimed one of Bieber’s bodyguards attacked him last year.
Beiber variously clowns, winks, smiles smugly, feigns sleep, curses, and has an emo meltdown when the lawyer asks him about sometime girlfriend Selena Gomez.
At one point Beiber is asked whether he knows Usher.
Bieber: “Usher, yeah that sounds familiar.”
Lawyer: “Isn’t it true that Usher was instrumental in starting your career?”
Bieber: “I was found on YouTube and I think I was detrimental to my own career."
