Justin Bieber, Lil Za and Lil Twist: Named in Battery Lawsuit By Photographer

by at . Comments

Justin Bieber's pals Lil Za and Lil Twist have been named in a battery complaint by a paparazzo who alleges that they attacked him in Miami last June.

Justin Bieber and Lil Twist: Shirtless!

Jeffrey Binion, who's currently suing Justin and a bodyguard, says in his deposition that he was confronted by Za, Twist and two Bieber bodyguards.

The celebrity gossip photographer says he was taking pictures of Justin outside of a recording studio when Za demanded he turn over the camera.

The Lil one threatened to break it, then tried to wrench it from his hand, Binion claims, over the course of a struggle that lasted 3-5 minutes overall. 

As for Lil Twist, Binion says he was egging Lil Za on during this. Binion also claims one of the bodyguards for Justin Bieber threatened him with a gun.

Binion says he was forced to delete the Justin Bieber photos, as a bodyguard had him in a choke hold which left him injured and mentally screwed up.

Bieber is scheduled to give his version in a deposition in the lawsuit next month, and he's already asked a judge to keep his testimony under wraps.

Away from the public, in other words ... because the pop superstar would hate to have any bad press come out of this and hurt his squeaky clean image.

Sorry, what is this, 2011? Tati Neves made sure that era is over.
