Talking about Copyright Isn’t This Bad, Is It?

Perhaps Bieber does not enjoy it. 

Justin Bieber has been accused of faking illness to miss a deposition in a copyright infringement case over his hit Sorry.The 22-year-old singer and his track partner, DJ/producer Skrillex, were sued by singer Casey Dienel, known professionally as White Hinterland, who claimed the Baby hitmaker’s chart smash sounds eerily similar to her track Ring The Bell, which became an indie hit in 2014.

A deposition had been scheduled for 8 February (17), with Dienel’s lawyers apparently flying from Los Angeles to Nashville to make things easier for Bieber.

However, Bieber’s team informed Dienel’s lawyers just hours before the deposition was due to start that the singer wouldn’t be able to attend because he was ill.

But, according to legal papers obtained by TMZ.com, the legal team then came across videos of Bieber on YouTube, which showed the singer chugging beers at a house party and Bootsy Bellows nightclub in the early hours of the morning on the day for which the deposition was scheduled.

TMZ report the papers accuse Bieber of “rubbing their (the lawyers’) noses in it by posting Instagram pics drinking with friends … hours after he played hooky.”

Thus ends the celebrity gossip portion of the blog.
