Somebody is having the worst week ever…
Justin Bieber Being Sued For Allegedly Assaulting His Former Bodyguard
Justin Bieber might just be having the worst 2013 ever…..and we’re not even two weeks in to the year.
First photos surfaced last week of the Biebs piff-puffin’ with his friends….then his off-again boo-thang Selena Gomez kicked him to the curb for good….and now a former bodyguard is slamming him with a lawsuit to the tune of $400K+.
Justin Bieber beat the crap out of one of his Israeli bodyguards … and berated the former soldier after a disagreement … this according to a new lawsuit.
Biebs — who’s 5’7″ and MAYBE 130 lbs — is being sued by Moshe Benabou, an ex-member of the Israeli army.
According to Benabou — who claims he worked for the singer from March 2011 to Oct. 2012 — JB berated him and punched him in the chest multiple times during a disagreement about how to handle a member of Bieber’s entourage.
Benabou is seeking unspecified damages for assault and battery — and more than $420,000 in unpaid overtime.
But sources in Bieber’s camp tell TMZ … Moshe is nothing more than a “disgruntled employee looking for money.” They say the claim that Bieber struck him is “absurd.”
As for why Moshe was fired, our sources say he told multiple lies including a big one — that he had worked closely with Justin Timberlake before being hired by Bieber.
Our sources say it was discovered that he never worked for JT a day in his life.
You may recall, Benabou was the guy who got into a physical confrontation with a photog at LAX back in February. After a brief struggle, both men fell to the ground … and Benabou landed a pretty solid punch while the pap was being restrained by another person.
Daaayyyuum. Guess all that time with the money team must have gone to his head….
