Justin Bieber Attends Mediation In Photographer’s Lawsuit

Pop star Justin Bieber attended a mediation session in Miami in a lawsuit filed by a photographer who says he was roughed up by the singer’s security.

Lawyers say Bieber spent about five hours Tuesday behind closed doors at a law firm with mediator David Gersten, a former judge.

Photographer Jeffrey Binion seeks unspecified damages in the 2013 lawsuit claiming he was assaulted by a Bieber bodyguard outside a recording studio. Binion’s attorney declined to say whether a settlement is near.

The 21-year-old Bieber has had several run-ins with celebrity photographers.

While in Miami, Bieber appeared at the electronic and sang with Ariana Grande at her concert Saturday night.
