Here's Bieber at Monday's Heat game. Money can't buy you happiness, they say.

Justin Bieber sure doesn't like photographers these days. First he spazzed out on a paparazzo at the Miami Heat basketball game Monday, then squabbled with TWO others early Wednesday morning. Hey, Biebs, if you're mad you look like a dork in those photos, maybe quit wearing leather shirts.

To be fair, one incident allegedly involved two of his bodyguards shaking down someone taking photos of Bieber skateboarding in the parking lot of The Hit Factory in Miami. Those two are accused of choking the guy and taking his memory card for shooting. Cops have already sent that one to the state attorney, TMZ says, with rumors there are photos of the attack.

But before that, there was another case in the same parking lot around 4 a.m. Wednesday of Bieber screaming at another photog, this time with an audio recording now posted on TMZ. Bieber can be heard shouting to his bodyguards, "Get that f---ing camera out of here," then listening to the camera man asking for his equipment back.

"All right, I'm gonna give you your camera back," Bieber is heard saying, as if it's all well and good to order his thugs to take it in the first place. "I'm gonna take your SIM card, though." The photog asked for it back, but Bieber refused.

Police say they don't have a report of that incident, so they haven't investigated. Bieber's people haven't said word one about the whole thing. But if there's one thing we learned from the Monday incident at American Airlines Arena, Bieber will freak if you take his photo, despite him being famous by posting his own videos on YouTube.
