Justin Bieber's former neighbors have been told they must submit to a psychological exam after accusing the pop star of emotional terrorism.
Jeffrey and Suzanne Schwartz were at the center of the egg-throwing vandalism drama that landed Bieber in trouble with the law, and now it looks as if the Baby singer's accusers are under the spotlight.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Holly Fujie has insisted on the mental evaluations, claiming the tests are essential if the Schwartzes plan to prove they suffered severe emotional distress as a result of Bieber's actions.
The couple's lawyers have argued the psychological examinations are not necessary.
Bieber had to pay the Schwartzes $80,000 (GBP60,000) for the damage his egg-throwing incident caused to their home. He has completed probation in a misdemeanor vandalism case filed over the incident.
Jeffrey Schwartz also accused Bieber of spitting on him.
In their lawsuit filed against Bieber in March, 2015, the pair claim the singer terrorized their family with parties and aggressive driving around their Calabasas, California neighborhood.
Shortly after his altercation with the pair, Bieber moved out of the area.
Bieber's attorney, Jeremiah Reynolds, tells Billboard.com he and his client are pleased with the judge's ruling.
