Judge Judy says Justin Bieber is “Scared to Death” of her

TV icon, Judge Judy says her former neighbour, Justin Bieber used to do everything possible to avoid her: “He’s scared to death of me.”

In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, TV personality and former prosecutor, Judge Judy (real name Judith Susan Sheindlin) declared that Justin Bieber, who used to be her Californian neighbour, became “scared to death” of her after she made some savage comments about him many years ago.

Recalling a 2014 interview with CBS Los Angeles, during which she stated that Bieber was “doing a very good job of making a fool out of himself,” she explained to Access Hollywood, “It was a period of time before he grew up, when he was foolish and doing foolish things.”

Judge Judy continued, “I must have said something about it, and then I understood that he was paying the front door people to let them know when I was there coming and going so he wouldn’t have to bump into me.”

During the 2014 interview, the iconic TV Judge had also reportedly stated, “nobody’s going to remember that he was a marginal singer. But they’re going to remember a young kid who had a chance to have it all and who is blowing it by acting like a fool.”

As reported by Billboard, Judge Judy’s comments during that fateful conversation with CBS followed a myriad of controversial incidents surrounding the Peaches hitmaker.

A few months prior to the interview, Justin Bieber had been “charged with assaulting a limo driver.” In January of 2014, “police searched his home after he allegedly egged a neighbor’s house.” During the same month, Bieber was also arrested on “charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license.”

Flash-forward to 2021, Justin Bieber reflected on his mistakes via Instagram: “7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood and angry at god.. I also wore too much leather for someone in Miami.”

He continued: “All this to say God has brought me a long way. From then til now I do realize something.. God was as close to me then as he is right now. My encouragement to you is to ‘let your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you. Don’t allow shame to ruin your “today” let the forgiveness of Jesus take over and watch your life blossom into all that God has designed you to be. LOVE YOU GUYS WITH MY WHOLE HEART.”
