Justin Bieber wants a videotaped deposition in his legal battle with a Miami paparazzo kept secret.
According to TMZ, Justin is being sued by Jeffrey Binion, who claims one of Justin's thugs choked him and stole his camera equipment back in June.
Binion's attorney is set to grill Justin in a videotaped deposition next month and Justin responded with a legal request for it to be kept under lock and key.
Justin's lawyers feel "it is highly likely that the entire deposition will be published to the public." They worry that the questioning will include lots of topics unrelated to the case.
A judge will decide soon.
RELATED: Did Justin Bieber's Bodyguard Threatened To Kill A Paparazzo?
Justin Bieber's bodyguard allegedly threatened to kill a photographer for taking pictures of him outside a recording studio in June.
Justin is being sued by Jeffrey Binion, who claims one of his minders choked him and stole his camera equipment in Florida, before threatening him with a gun.
The paparazzo claims he was confronted by Justin's friends, Lil Za and Lil Twist, and two of his bodyguards.
A struggle broke out when Lil Za tried to take the camera from Binion's hands, while Lil Twist egged him on. The photographer is suing Justin and one of his bodyguards, saying he suffered bodily injury, pain and suffering, mental anguish and medical expenses. He claims he was also forced to delete the photographs because the bodyguard had him in a choke hold.
Justin is scheduled to give a deposition next month.
