The suit claims Lil Za and Lil Twist were involved...
As previously reported, Justin Bieber and his bodyguard have been sued by a paparazzo who claims he was attacked by them last June in Miami. Now, TMZ reports that the plaintiff, Jeffrey Binion, has given his deposition which claims that Bieber's friends Lil Za and Lil Twist were among the group who went after him after he took pictures of Bieber outside of a recording studio.
Binion said in his deposition that Lil Za demanded his camera, threatened to smash it and then tried to pull it out of his hand while Lil Twist egged Za on. Binion claims that the altercation lasted between three to five minutes and that one of the two Bieber bodyguards who came over with the two threatened him with a gun.
Bionon notes that he was forced to delete the pics after one of the bodyguards put him in a chokehold. That bodyguard is the one being sued along with Bieber.
Bieber's deposition is scheduled for next month. He has asked a judge to keep his deposition private.
