Justin Bieber has been subpoenaed to testify in a wrongful dismissal lawsuit filed against him by his former housekeeper.

Tatiana Voziouk began working as a maid at the “Baby” hitmaker’s Calabasas, California mansion in August, 2012, but was let go unexpectedly last summer.

She filed suit over the matter last year and Bieber has now been summoned to appear in court on Tuesday.

Voziouk’s lawyer, Lawrence Ring, tells the New York Daily News, “My client was extremely diligent, loyal and hardworking, making sure that the house was running as efficiently as possible. No reason was given to my client for her termination.”

The suit is Bieber’s latest legal woe – he stormed out of a deposition relating to a photographer assault case in Miami, Florida on Thursday, while he is facing trial over DUI charges stemming from an arrest in Florida in January.

He is also under investigation for vandalism over a reported ‘egging’ attack on a Calabasas neighbour’s home, and is facing another assault allegation from a chauffeur in Canada.

FILE- This is a 1967 handout image from Parlophone of The British group, The Beatles,. From left, are: Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Paul McCartney; and George Harrison. The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
