Justin Bieber will have to sit for a new deposition in the ongoing photographer assault case.

According to TMZ, a judge has ordered that the 20-year-old singer be interrogated again after refusing to answer questions about on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez and displaying bad behaviour during his initial session.

The 'Believe' hitmaker was ordered to answer questions from lawyers in March as part of an ongoing lawsuit relating to his bodyguard allegedly beating up a photographer, but after he refused to respond to several queries, a judge has insisted he must repeat the interrogation, with the same lawyer.

A video of the deposition was posted by TMZ, showing Bieber refusing to answer questions about Gomez.

In the video, Bieber bluntly refuses to answer anything related to his on/off girlfriend Gomez. But the lawyer representing the photographer, Jeffrey Binion, insisted that Justin and Selena's relationship is relevant to the case because she was with him at the scene of another apparent attack on a paparazzo in 2012.

However, after refusing to answer several times, the 20-year-old star eventually exploded, saying: "Don't ask me about her! Do not ask me about her!"

The 'Beauty and a Beat' singer then stormed out of the room, and was said to have been "on edge" when he returned a few minutes later and angered the lawyer with his surly responses.

When he responded to a query by saying, "Yeah", the lawyer asked, "Do you mean yes?", to which he scoffed, "What the f**k is the difference between yeah and yes?!"

The sarcastic star remained unimpressed by the cross-examination.

He allegedly then went on to say, "What is this, '60 Minutes?' " and later quipped, "OK Katie Couric, what's your question again?"

The star is accused of ordering his bodyguard Hugo Hesny to choke Binion and steal his camera equipment, in an incident that happened last June outside a Miami recording studio.

According to TMZ, no date has yet been set for the new deposition, but it will be videotaped again.
