Judge Judy has always told it like it is on her daytime TV court show — which can be pretty intimidating to those she deems as wrongdoers. And it seems like it worked on Justin Bieber IRL!
In case you didn’t know, the Biebs and Judy, whose full name is Judith Scheindlin, were neighbors once upon a time. And according to the longtime magistrate herself, things weren’t always so neighborly! In a recent interview with Access Hollywood on Monday, she said the pop star is actually “scared to death” of her:
“He’s scared to death of me. There was a period of time before he grew up — when he was foolish, and doing foolish things.”
Yeah, hard to forget those days. At least she wasn’t the neighbor whose house he egged! Probably due to the aforementioned fear!
In fact, the Yummy singer was so terrified he allegedly made his security warn him when Judge Judy was out and about:
“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.”
Poor Justin! What did he think Judy was going to do to him if they bumped into one another? Give him her all-too-famous sharp glare? Or maybe he thought she’d pull out her gavel right then and there! Ha!
The 80-year-old said his fear seemed to come after he was arrested for a DUI in 2014. She notably told CBS Los Angeles at the time she believed the Love Yourself singer was taking his status as a celebrity for granted:
“Being a celebrity is a gift. You could either treat it reverently or you could make a fool out of yourself. And he’s doing a very good job of making a fool out of himself. I think it’s sad. And 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.”
The court show star definitely struck a nerve with the Ghost singer if he avoided her at all costs after this. But we have to say, we’d probably feel a bit compelled to hide away if Judge Judy called us out — that had to sting! Besides, he probably faced more judges than he ever wanted to in those days!
It seems like everything is behind them now — but we doubt Justin will be keen on going to any more block parties on Judy’s street! At least not without his bodyguard! LOLz!
