Judge Judy and Justin Bieber were once neighbors, and their relationship wasn’t exactly friendly.
In a new interview with Access Hollywood, the TV staple said the singer was scared of her when she talked openly about his run-ins with the law, namely his 2014 DUI.
“He’s scared to death of me,” the 80-year-old told the outlet. “There was a period of time before he grew up—when he was foolish, and doing foolish things.”
She explained that Bieber asked his security to keep tabs on her schedule so they wouldn’t run into each other. “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,” she said.
