The pop star will be represented by his lawyer at the Old City Hall courthouse to answer for an incident with a limo driver on December 30, 2013.

TORONTO -- Justin Bieber is not due to appear at the Old City Hall courthouse Monday regarding a recent assault charge.

Bieber's lawyer, Seth Weinstein, is instead appearing to answer a charge that the pop star assaulted a limo driver, Abdul Mohar, on December 30, 2013, after leaving a Toronto nightclub, the Toronto Star newspaper reported.

Bieber, who comes from nearby Stratford, Ontario, skipped his first Toronto court appearance after being officially charged here on January 29, 2014.

The Canadian pop star faces other legal woes, after being arrested in January in Miami and charged with a DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.

Bieber is also under investigation in Los Angeles for an egging incident with a neighbor.
