Justin Bieber's bodyguard allegedly threatened to kill a photographer for taking pictures of the 19-year-old star outside a recording studio in June.

The 'Believe' hitmaker is being sued by Jeffrey Binion, who claims one of the singer's minders choked him and stole his camera equipment in Miami, Florida, before threatening him with a gun earlier this year.

In his court deposition, obtained by gossip website, the paparazzo said he was confronted by the star's friends, Lil Za and Lil Twist, and two of his bodyguards.

A struggle broke out, which lasted between three to five minutes, when Lil Za tried to wrench the camera from Binion's hands, while Lil Twist allegedly egged him on.

The photographer, who is suing Justin and one of his bodyguards, saying he suffered bodily injury, pain and suffering, mental anguish and incurred medical expenses following the incident, said he was forced to delete the photographs because the bodyguard had him in a choke hold.

Justin is scheduled to give his deposition next month and wants the details to be kept secret.

The singer's lawyers have asked for the footage to be kept under lock and key, with the documents stating they feel "it is highly likely that the entire deposition will be published to the public."

They are said to be concerned the questioning will include lots of topics unrelated to the case, and are also requesting no copies be made of the recording.

In addition, the legal team want to pick the videographer themselves.
