Justin Bieber avoids the long arm of the law once again. The singer dodges a potential bench warrant for his arrest over a previous incident.
A Messy Situation
The court clerk confirms a judge refrained from issuing the warrant on Tuesday, July 3, in Los Angeles. It's therefore likely that Bieber and his former neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz, have agreed on a date for the "Sorry" hit-maker to sit for a deposition on the infamous 2014 egging incident.
According to Schwartz, Bieber missed his June 22 deposition because he was off gallivanting with maybe-girlfriend Hailey Baldwin in New York. The alleged couple has been hopping between coasts for the past week.
However, the singer's legal team disputed this claim, arguing they tried rescheduling with Schwartz but he went to court instead.
Bieber was already tasked with performing community service and anger management classes due to the misdemeanor vandalism case. He was also ordered to pay $80,000 to repair Schwartz's home.
The pop star and his rumored lady ran into some trouble in the Hamptons earlier this week, after the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG they were cruising on broke down.
Police was called to direct traffic until a mechanic arrived on the scene, but Bieber was hilariously caught on video directing cars. Baldwin, who also appears in the footage, looked completely baffled on the sidelines.
The two have recently, allegedly, rekindled a flame that never really got going in the first place. They have been friends for years and kind of dated before, with Baldwin noting their very public relationship didn't really work for either party.
Lately, though, they've been spotted attending religious conferences, making out in parks, and going on movie dates without confirming there's anything going on between them.
Finding Their Way Back To Each Other
Rumors about Bieber and Baldwin originally circulated around 2014, with the two denying anything was going on in spite of being caught kissing at an NYE party.
The model advised they weren't exclusive, and Bieber claimed he didn't want to rush things. The two soon realized they were better off as friends.
The singer was linked to Selena Gomez for the intervening years, with the two calling time on their relationship yet again earlier this year.
Baldwin, on the other hand, most recently sparked relationship rumors with Canadian crooner Shawn Mendes after the two appeared together on the 2018 Met Gala red carpet.
