Justin Bieber - Justin Bieber Plays Basketball In Texas As Assault Case Returns To Toronto Court

Subscribe to Justin Bieber alerts

Justin Bieber skipped a court appearance in Toronto, Canada on Monday (10Mar14) to play basketball with students at the University of Texas.

The Baby hitmaker flew to Texas at the end of last week (07Mar14) to spend some quality time with his on/off girlfriend Selena Gomez and he headed to the city of Austin over the weekend (09Mar14) to stage a surprise performance at the South by Southwest festival.

Bieber decided to stick around on Monday and test out his ball skills with student athletes at the university's gym. He showed off his talents by sharing an Instagram.com video of him outmanoeuvring his manager, Scooter Braun, to score a basket, alongside the caption, "Don't trip scoot (sic)", while his representative got his own back by uploading another clip showing the youngster falling to the ground as he scored a slam dunk.

Braun further poked fun at the 20 year old by posting a photo of himself and the school team, with Bieber stuffed into the basketball hoop above them.

That photo was captioned, "Great day hoopin (sic). Thanks to #texasbasketball... for hooking it up".

The workout session took place on the same day Bieber's alleged assault on a limo driver is due to return to court in Toronto. His lawyer, Seth Weinstein, is expected to answer the allegations on his client's behalf.

Bieber stands accused of clashing with the driver after leaving a Canadian nightclub in December (13). He was officially charged with assault on 29 January (14), days after he was arrested for Dui and a string of other reported offences in Miami, Florida.

The two cases aren't the only legal woes facing the superstar - he is also fighting a lawsuit filed against him by a paparazzo in Miami, relating to a run-in last summer (13) and video footage of his recent deposition has since surfaced online, depicting him behaving badly and swearing as he is quizzed about his life and career.

He appeared to address the press coverage of his leaked deposition on Twitter.com on Monday, writing, "Love how some people love to twist and justify the horrible action of others. We all have a right to defend ourselves and feel harassed..."
