When you're Justin Bieber, there is no such thing as privacy. That's why you've got to instill some forced privacy of your own when it comes to doing "normal" things like throwing house parties and hanging out with your friends.
For Bieber, that means making everyone who attends parties at his house sign a confidentially waiver. TMZ has acquired a copy of the non-disclosure agreement, which includes a threat of a $5 million lawsuit if anyone shares any details or spreads any photos or videos of what goes down in "Casa De Bieb" in Calabasas, Calif.
This isn't the first time we've heard of the 19-year-old pop star's strict partying rules. The NDA came to light when pictures of Bieber smoking pot hit the web back in January. Apparently, someone in Bieber's security team had forgotten to post signs at the party saying all the pictures taken on the grounds were Bieber's personal property, and that's why the scandalous images leaked.
Honestly, we'd be a little scared to attend a party thrown by Bieber if faced with one of these waivers. Violations that warrant the $5 million lawsuit include anything from blogging to texting about the event. What if you need a ride home from a friend and try to text for a pick-up? There doesn't seem to be much leeway in this NDA.
While TMZ reports that other celebrities often make party attendees sign these sort of contracts, some of these stipulations are a bit terrifying. One says that visiting Bieber's home could be "potentially hazardous and you should not participate unless you are medically able and properly trained." What does that even mean? Other risks include "minor injuries to catastrophic injuries, including death." Does he have a Game of Thrones-inspired bear-fighting pit there or something?
We understand that Bieber has to go to some pretty extreme lengths to preserve his privacy, but it sucks that he has to take all the fun out of attending a house party. Maybe he should also prevent people who have ever owned a camera from attending (just in case!), force people to leave their cell phones at the door, and refuse entry to people who have ever owned a monkey (just because that still stings for him). Ah, to be a celebrity -- it must be a hard life.
