Judge Orders Justin Bieber To Return To Florida For Deposition Stemming From 2014 Bodyguard Attack — Will The Singer Comply??

no title

Justin Bieber's lingering legal problems have officially caught up to him.

A Florida judge has ordered the 22-year-old to return to Miami from the international leg of his Purpose World Tour for a deposition stemming from a 2014 lawsuit, according to TMZ.

In case you don't remember, over two years ago, photographer Manuel Munoz was snapping some pics of Justin outside of SET Nightclub when the controversial singer noticed and wasn't too happy about it. According to a lawsuit filed by Munoz, Biebs' bodyguard Dwayne Patterson chased the cameraman into a nearby Subway restaurant and allegedly beat him up to get the pictures.

Oof.

The gossip outlet reports lawyers met in court on Wednesday where the judge gave Justin 30 days to return to Miami to be questioned by the photog's attorney, Mark DiCowden, regarding the alleged attack and Bieber's past altercations with fans and papz.

Problem is, this obviously interrupts the Sorry singer's European tour which isn't scheduled to end until late November. Boo hoo.

Plus, there's a good chance the deposition will be videotaped… and we all remember how that went last time.

If the Love Yourself pop star doesn't show up, the judge threatened to issue a writ of bodily attachment, which allows sheriff's deputies to haul in the young singer if he doesn't come voluntarily.

Tick tock, J.B.!

Jared Leto Takes Moral High Ground After Losing His Taylor Swift Sh*t-Talking Lawsuit Against TMZ!

no title

The Joker isn't going to laugh this one off.

Last December, Jared Leto filed a lawsuit against TMZ for posting a video in which he said he didn't "give a f*ck" about Taylor Swift, claiming the clip was a "stolen copy" and "not meant to be publicly released."

However, things didn't work in the Suicide Squad star's favor on Friday when a judge granted summary judgment to the website.

The judge ruled that the videographer was never Leto's employee and did not agree in writing to give the actor ownership of the video before shooting it in September 2015.

But the Oscar-winner isn't backing down! Over the weekend, the 44-year-old vowed to appeal the decision, saying in a statement:

Jim Carrey is tired of the BS!

As we reported, on Monday, Cathriona White's secret estranged husband Mark Burton filed a lawsuit against the actor accusing him of providing her with deadly prescription meds. Last September, the 30-year-old committed suicide by overdosing on Ambien, Propranolol, and Percocet.

That same day, the Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind star's lawyer — Marty Singer — says his client is in no way, shape, or form responsible for his ex-girlfriend's death.

Singer says Carrey didn't give her a single pill, and that she "stole" his prescriptions.

The 54-year-old comedic legend says he will fight Burton's allegations and will NOT settle the case! He said:

"There are moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world. I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved."

Additionally, White had problems long before she was in a relationship with the thespian.

ICYMI: Over 200 Musicians — Including Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly, & Weezer — Defend Pharrell Against 'Dangerous' Blurred Lines Verdict!

no title

Last week, it was reported that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke clapped back hard at that Blurred Lines lawsuit — appealing the verdict that they committed copyright infringement against Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up.

Throughout the drawn out court battle, the singers expressed the sentiment that paying homage to an earlier era and making a song reminiscent of a sound shouldn't fall under copyright infringement.

And it looks like a TON of musicians agree — because 212 artists, composers, and producers have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the bid by Williams, Thicke, and T.I. to overturn the decision.

Musicians from all corners of the industry have banded together to support the appeal, claiming that the Blurred Lines creators deserve victory on grounds that the court's ruling will set a precedent that will "stifle creativity" and "impede the creative process."

Among those who threw their names in the ring are the members of Train, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Black Crowes, Fall Out Boy, as well as Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Hall & Oates' John Oates, R. Kelly, Hans Zimmer, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Baptiste, Evan Bogart and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse).

The artist's brief, penned by entertainment attorney Ed McPherson, states:
