MIAMI (AP) — Pop star Justin Bieber has reached a settlement with a photographer who claimed he was assaulted by the singer's bodyguard outside a South Florida recording studio.

Attorney Mark DiCowden confirmed the settlement Friday between his client, photographer Jeffrey Binion, and Bieber. DiCowden said terms of the agreement are confidential.

Binion filed the lawsuit in 2013 seeking unspecified damages. The photographer said he was roughed up while shooting pictures from a sidewalk outside the studio. The 21-year-old Bieber has had several run-ins with celebrity photographers, known as "paparazzi."

Bieber pleaded guilty last summer to reckless driving and resisting arrest following a Miami Beach incident in which he and a friend were accused of racing exotic sports cars.
