The troubles roll on for Justin Bieber. On Wednesday night, a 23-year-old fan was arrested in the Atlanta home that the pop singer is currently renting from music producer Dallas Austin. Sandy Springs police arrested Qianying Zhao of Doraville, Georgia, after an Austin family member discovered her sleeping in one of the home's bedrooms around 5 p.m. Zhao was charged with criminal trespass and booked on a misdemeanor at the Fulton County Jail Annex in Alpharetta, Georgia. Zhao told police "she entered the unoccupied home through an unlocked door" and came there "to attend Bieber's birthday party." When she realized she was too late (Bieber, his family, and close friends had decamped to the Bahamas to celebrate his 20th), she decided to stay there and wait for him. [Related: Birthday Partying, Bieber-Style: How Justin Celebrated His Big 2-0] Zhao insisted to police that she knew the Biebs. The authorities, however, believe she is taking her status as one of the artist's millions of social media "friends" too literally. While Zhao was logging quality time in jail Thursday morning, the media blitzed downtown Miami as Bieber was deposed in conjunction with a lawsuit filed by a paparazzo last June. Photographer Jeffrey Binion filed suit against the singer after his bodyguards allegedly roughed Binion up outside of the Hit Factory recording studio in North Miami Beach. Binion claims that Bieber ordered four members of his entourage "to confront [Binion] and to forcibly take the memory card from [his] camera." One of the men "threw [Binion] against a wall, began choking him, and threatened [him] with a gun," per the lawsuit. [Related: Atlanta Radio Stations Hoaxes With Anti-Bieber Protest] The deposition reportedly had been scheduled to take place in Santa Monica, California, in January, but was postponed because Bieber was in jail in Miami on charges of DUI, resisting arrest without violence, and driving with an expired license. Also on Thursday, Miami police finally released a controversial video that depicts Bieber urninating in his jail cell following his Miami arrest. Bieber's lawyer argued he did not want the video released until he was guaranteed that Bieber's private parts would be obscured. A status hearing is set for next Tuesday in Bieber's Miami arrest case. Oh, and as for Bieber's troubled Calabasas house — the one police raided in January over the singer's egg-throwing incident — sources confirmed on Thursday that Khloé Kardashian just bought it for $7.2 million. Bieber reportedly paid around $6 million for it in 2012. And the rich keep getting richer!

Things are looking bleak for "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa and Joe Giudice.
The controversial couple, who were hit with a 39-count indictment last July (two more indictments were later added in November), appeared in federal court in Newark, New Jersey, on Tuesday morning to accept a plea deal in their respective cases that could see them both log prison time. Both Teresa, 41, and Joe, 43, originally entered not guilty pleas to all counts in November. Today's proceedings only focused on the federal charges filed by the U.S. Department of Justice. Joe still faces state charges in New Jersey as well. The cases stretch back to September 2001 through June 2011.

Congratulations are in order for "Avengers" actress Scarlett Johansson. The woman behind the Black Widow has a little superhero of her own on the way with French journalist fiancé Romain Dauriac, "The Insider With Yahoo" has confirmed. It'll be the first child for the actress, 29, who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds. Johansson and Dauriac, 31, have been romantically linked since late 2012. She debuted her Art Deco engagement ring in Sept. 2013 at the Venice Film Festival. [Related: Scarlett Johansson Crowned Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire… Again!] Not much is known about Dauriac, who maintains a fairly low profile. ABC News reported that he's the former editor of a French urban art magazine called Clark. One report from Paris news website Pure People says that the couple was introduced by a mutual friend, a tattoo artist who inked Johansson. Although Dauriac has a Twitter account, he hasn't tweeted in almost three years. "He's a journalist, he's kind of in creative advertising," she told Vanity Fair's Krista Smith at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. "So he's just sort of out of the spotlight." [Related: Controversy Leads Scarlett Johansson to Step Down as Oxfam Ambassador] What we do know is that Johansson has a busy professional schedule over the next few months. Having recently starred as the sexy voice of Samantha in last fall's Oscar-nominated film, "Her," and alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt in "Don Jon," she has the indie thriller "Under the Skin" and blockbuster "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" both coming out on April 4. She's also scheduled to shoot "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" this year, while making her directorial debut with a big screen adaption of Truman Capote's "Summer Crossing," which is set to shoot in NYC this summer.

It wasn't all waltzes and strudel for Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner in Vienna Thursday night.
Kim was the victim of not one, but two racially charged incidents at the Vienna Opera Ball — and now one of the comics involved is apologizing for an ill-conceived "joke."
Kardashian, 33, was the guest of billionaire Richard Lugner, who reportedly paid the reality star half a million dollars to escort him to the soiree.
Almost every social group and profession in Austria throws balls, but according to Reuters, the Opera Ball "is the most elite" of them all. Lugner likes to upstage the event with an array of celebrity guests, which have in the past included Pamela Anderson, Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, and the late Larry Hagman. But none of those stars never had to endure what Kardashian did.
