Judge Judy has revealed that there was a time when her former neighbor Justin Bieber was "scared to death" of her.

In an interview with Access Hollywood promoting season two of Judy Justice, the 80-year-old TV personality claimed that the singer used to be afraid of her when they both had apartments at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Judy Sheindlin said that the now-28-year-old pop star avoided her after she brought the gavel down in the court of public opinion during his teenage years.

"He's scared to death of me. There was a period of time before he grew up - when he was foolish, and doing foolish things," she said. "I must have said something about it, and then, I understood that he was paying the front door people to let them know when I was there, coming and going, so he wouldn't have to bump into me."

Watch the judge speak about Bieber below:

Shiendlin did in fact make a comment to CBS Los Angeles about the 'Baby' singer's behavior after he was arrested for a DUI and was charged in two other court cases in 2014.

According to E Online, at that time, Bieber was ordered to undergo a 12-hour anger management course, complete a DUI education program, make a $50,000 charitable contribution and pay additional fines after pleading guilty.

The judge spoke about the star's controversial incident and said at the time: "Being a celebrity is a gift; you can either treat it reverently, or you can make a fool out of yourself, and he's doing a very good job of making a fool out of himself and I think it's sad."

"Nobody's going to remember that he was a marginal singer, but they're going to remember a young kid, who had a chance to have it all, and who is blowing it by acting like a fool," she added.

Despite her words, it looks like the 'Beauty and a Beat' singer grew past his antics as he reflected on his law-breaking past last year on Instagram by sharing a picture of him being arrested.

"7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood, and angry at god," Bieber captioned the post.

"All this to say God has brought me a long way. From then til now I do realize something.. God was as close to me then as he is right now. My encouragement to you is to 'let your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you," he continued.

"Don’t allow shame to ruin your 'today' let the forgiveness of Jesus take over and watch your life blossom into all that God has designed you to be," he said, adding, "LOVE YOU GUYS WITH MY WHOLE HEART."
