Justin Bieber failed to appear in court on Monday (April 14), just hours after he appeared on stage at Coachella Festival.

As reported, Bieber made a surprise appearance during Chance The Rapper's set at the US festival, a move which appears to have led to him being unable to make a scheduled visit to court in Toronto where he faces a recent assault charge.

The Toronto Star newspaper reports that the pop star's lawyers stood in for Bieber and received disclosure evidence from crown prosecutors about the case, which dates back to an incident involving a limo driver in Toronto in December 2013. The case has been scheduled to return to court on May 12.

Bieber also skipped his first Toronto court appearance in March after being officially charged with the assault on January 29 of this year.

Bieber's surprise appearance at Coachella was one of many with Beyonce joining her sister Solange's set, with the pair performing a dance routine to 'Losing You'.

Pharrell Williams also played a star studded set, joined onstage by Snoop Dogg, Nelly, P Diddy, Gwen Stefani and Busta Rhymes during his show as well as by Tyler, The Creator and Diplo.
