Judge: Bieber must sit for deposition or face arrest, court

A Florida judge has ordered pop star Justin Bieber to sit down for a deposition within the next 30 days or face the threat of being arrested and brought to court.

Circuit Judge Jerald Bagley issued the order Wednesday in Miami.

The order compels Bieber to sit for a deposition in a lawsuit filed by a photographer who got into an altercation with one of the singer's bodyguards two years ago in Miami Beach.

The photographer's attorney says he has been unable to get Bieber to sit for the deposition. Attorney Mark DiCowden says Bieber isn't entitled to any special treatment just because he's a celebrity.

Bieber's attorney, John Atkinson, didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Short on donations, Romania faces deadline to buy Brancusi

Romania's culture minister says the public has donated much less than needed to buy a nationally treasured work by sculptor Constantin Brancusi.

Corina Suteu thanked the 100,000 contributors who had given 1.163 million euros ($1.30 million) as of Friday, adding the government has one month left to buy the sculpture, "Wisdom of the Earth," from its private owners.

Romania's government plans to pay 5 million euros toward the sculpture's 11-million-euro purchase price. The government launched a public campaign in March to raise the remaining 6 million euros.

Suteu says she will present a new plan soon to fill the deficit.

"Wisdom of the Earth" depicts a female figure sitting with folded arms and her legs pulled up. It is one of just a few Brancusi works remaining in his homeland.

US rapper Gibbs cleared of sexual abuse charges in Austria

An Austrian court on Friday found U.S. rapper Freddie Gibbs not guilty on charges of sexual abuse, ruling there was not enough evidence in the case involving a fan.

Gibbs had been indicted for allegedly exploiting the dazed state of a then 17-year-old woman whose drinks were possibly spiked to sexually abuse her after a nightclub appearance starring the rapper last year.

Gibbs, whose real name is Fredrick Tipton, had denied the accusations.

Absent from the court in Vienna was a bodyguard sought for alleged sexual abuse of a 16-year-old woman who had accompanied the 17-year-old to Gibbs' hotel. He is believed to be somewhere in the United States.

The woman had accused Gibbs after saying that she had a flashback to the incident sparked by a song, nearly a year after it occurred. Defense lawyers for Gibbs cited initial testimony from the two women that only the bodyguard had sex with the younger woman.
