Pop star Justin Bieber has lost the right to defend himself in court after blowing off depositions over his vandalism case.
According to court documents obtained by a website The Blast, the judge overseeing the pop star’s battle with his former neighbour Jeff Schwartz has sanctioned Bieber for failing to sit for his deposition on multiple occasions.
Schwartz urged lawmakers to issue a warrant for the singer’s arrest after Bieber skipped a deposition last month to hang out with his fiancee Hailey Baldwin in New York, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make.

By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!" This is the year of favor!!!!
The judge declared that since Bieber had refused deposition requests, he will not be allowed to “testify on his own defence”.
The jury will also be told that Bieber “refused to appear for his deposition”, and now it will be admitted as fact that Bieber is liable for the infamous 2014 egg attack on his ex-neighbour’s home - and that he did so “with malice”.
The judge also ordered the star to pay Schwartz $7,500 in sanctions for missing the depositions.
