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...
