Justin Bieber has criticised his former mentor Usher in a leaked video of his court testimony in a court case brought against him by a photographer.

Bieber appeared at a court in Miami last Thursday (March 6) to defend himself in a case brought by photographer Jeffrey Binion. The photographer claims that Bieber ordered four of his bodyguards to forcibly remove the memory card from Binion’s camera after he took photos of Bieber outside recording studio ‘The Hit Factory’ in June 2013.

TMZ has released four clips totalling eight minutes from Bieber’s five-hour testimony. In one clip, Bieber is asked about his former mentor Usher, who played a prominent part in Bieber’s early career. “Usher? Yeah, that sounds familiar,” said Bieber. “I was found on YouTube. I was instrumental in my own career.”

Another clip shows Bieber lose patience with Binion’s lawyer Mark DiCowden over questions about the singer’s relationship with Selena Gomez. He said: “Don’t ask me about her again,” before requesting to take a break from the courtroom.

Bieber is due to appear in court on Tuesday in a separate case. He was arrested on January 23 and charged with DUI after allegedly taking part in an illegal car race.
