‘They Can’t Break Us’: Justin Bieber ‘Defends’ Behaviour After Being ‘Harassed’ During Deposition?

Justin Bieber doesn’t seem to be too pleased with the way he has been portrayed in his deposition for a civil suit against a photographer this week, appearing to claim via Twitter that he was “harassed” while explaining his right to “defend” himself.

The 20-year-old was called to Miami last week for a formal hearing in regards to the alleged assault between one of his bodyguards and a paparazzo.

Footage released from the deposition this week shows Justin being difficult with the lawyer posing the questions to him, refusing to answer or dodging the questions with smart remarks and even pretending to sleep at one point.

While he doesn’t explicitly direct his tweets to the deposition, the ‘All That Matters’ singer claims the perception of him has been misconstrued.

“Love how some people love to twist and justify the horrible action of others. We all have a right to defend ourselves and feel harassed,” Justin tweeted yesterday. “They can’t break us. They can’t get us down. We are too strong. We love too much. #mybeliebers.”

In one of the deposition videos, Justin gets angry when the lawyer asked about his on/off girlfriend, replying while shaking his finger repeatedly: “Don’t ever ask me about her.”

Justin is obviously well acquainted with Selena, 21, with the pair spending time together in Texas last weekend and even filming a video of them performing a sexy dance at a studio.

The footage shows the on/off couple dancing around to John Legend’s ‘Ordinary People’ with Justin even hoisting Selena up onto his torso and then pinning her against a wall.
