Lawyers representing embattled pop star Justin Bieber have filed legal documents in an attempt to prevent the release of images showing the singer in police custody.

Bieber lawyers in jail pics release block

The request comes after footage emerged of the Baby hitmaker being strip-searched by police in a jail in Florida following his arrest last month.

The motion, filed late on Friday by Bieber's legal team stated: "While in custody at the Miami Beach police station the defendant was captured on videotape in various states of undress which show intimate personal parts of the defendant's body."

The documents allege the release of the video showing Bieber's strip search is in violation of the law and it emerged before the pop star's lawyers were made aware of the existence of the footage.

Last week, it was revealed a police officer was facing an internal investigation over claims she attempted to take a picture of the singer while he was behind bars.

Bieber denies charges of driving under the influence, driving on a suspended licence and resisting arrest without violence and is due to appear in court in Florida on Friday.
