Justin Bieber is just making a royal display of himself lately, isn’t he? After he got caught smoking weed, the X Factor star also inspired a twitter trend, #CutForBieber. After that harrowing ordeal, we’re now learning of a new scandal the Biebs is involved in. He supposedly assaulted his ex-bodyguard! Keep reading for details!
Justin Bieber’s recent headlines haven’t been all that encouraging, and now he’s in the spotlight of a legal battle. It seems that Bieber’s ex-bodyguard, Moshe Benabou, claims Justin struck Moshe numerous times in the chest, along with hurling insults at him, during an argument over a member of the “Baby” singer’s entourage. Crazy! Moshe claims he was in Bieber’s employ from March 2011 to October 2012, when the argument occurred. When Moshe retreated from the altercation, he says he was fired by Justin. The lawsuit goes on to state the Moshe was incorrectly advised that he was NOT eligible for overtime pay after working 14-18 hours a day for Justin. Moshe is asking for over $420,000 in overtime, along with charges related to assault and battery.
Justin’s camp is so far remaining quiet on the issue, but sources close to Justin are calling it all malarkey. One source termed Moshe as a “Disgruntled employee looking for money.” And that the idea of Justin, who’s all of 140 lbs soaking wet, attacking a much larger ex-israeli army member, “absurd.”
What also doesn’t seem to jive is Benabou’s past. Moshe claims he worked for Justin Timberlake, but doesn’t have the records to prove it. Something’s fishy here!
What do you think happened? Will the lawsuit get thrown out? Let us know in the comments!
