London - Justin Bieber's defence attorney Roy Black insists the singer has not been offered a plea deal in his driving under the influence (DUI) case.

The 20-year-old star's legal team are preparing for the upcoming trial on May 5 in relation to his arrest in January, after the lawyer insisted claims he has rejected an agreement are untrue.

Roy said: “The state has not offered any plea deal. The judge asked in court on Wednesday if an offer had been extended and the prosecutor said no. All I can say is that the case is set for trial and we are preparing for it.”

The 'Boyfriend' singer was driving a rented yellow Lamborghini when police stopped him for allegedly drag racing in Miami in January.

Toxicology test results later showed the singer had traces of marijuana and Xanax in his system at the time of the arrest.

According to Roy, Justin will attend the trial and he jokingly added, “But I can't promise Selena Gomez will be there.”

The 'Baby' hitmaker has also been charged with resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's license and the trial has been pushed back for two months after news organisations requested the release of a video showing the troubled star giving a urine sample in jail.

It was previously claimed Justin planned to refuse any plea deal that offered probation as one of the terms and he didn't want to be subjected to random drug testing. - Bang Showbiz
