Justin Bieber Accused of Assault, Sued by Former Bodyguard

by at . Comments

2013 is off to a REALLY rough start for Justin Bieber.

Dealing with a weed smoking scandal, and having reportedly been dumped by Selena Gomez, Bieber now faces a lawsuit from a former bodyguard named Moshe Benabou.

Justin Bieber Takes a Break

According to TMZ insiders, Benabou claims Bieber screamed at him and slugged him multiple times in the chest at some point during his employment (March 2011 - October 2012) after the two disagreed on how to handle a member of Bieber's entourage.

Benabou is after unspecified damages for assault and battery, along with at last $420,000 in unpaid overtime.

Those inside Justin's camp, however, tell TMZ that Benebou is a "disgruntled employee looking for money."

They label the notion of the diminutive Bieber punching this ex-Israeli army member as "absurd" and say he was let go because he told a number of lies, including fabricating a tale that he once worked for Justin Timberlake.

Still, this kind of headache is simply not what Justin Bieber needs at the moment. If only he had a way to relax and let go of all his worries...


.....STICK ' EM UP, dumbo!!

@ herb

how rude can u be u dont even know him not cool it is called bulling and also its agenst the law so think before u speak about some one else that also means justin also he's 18 and doing unnomal 18 stuff right now but he's cute good job on that. i also like his now hair cut(:


Come on! A bodyguard who can't defend himself against the little Bieber? What kind of bodyguard is that? He might want to blab about the Bieb's slugging him, but it is laughable, isn't it? Suing him is ridiculous!
I actually feel sorry for the Bieb's. No, I'm not a fan, but from the start I saw trouble -- no teenager can get that amount of publicity and fame and not
go through hell. This is only the beginning for Justin. He should take all his money and go hide in the mountains. Society "pounces" on famous people. He'll never escape weirdo's . All the money in the world couldn't get me to want fame. Best wishes for the kid.
