Bieber Sued By Bodyguard For Assault

January 10, 2013 05:08 PM by Megan Wilson

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!

    I would be ashamed to admit that I was “assaulted” by a tiny little girly-boy.

    How is Justin Bieber an X Factor star?

    How is it absurd that Justin would attack his bodyguard? The boy knows that he is not going to get hit back because the guard doesn’t want to lose his job. Also it is more than likely that he has more than one guard, so it wouldn’t be the guard vs Justin, it would be the guard vs the other guards.

    I don’t find it unusual that the ex-gaurd can’t prove a past employer–very classified field. However, that said, even if the allegations are true it’s a risk of the particular job-field. It should have remained a secret not a public spectical.

    It’s not unusual for a bodygaurd to be unable to show proof that he worked for a particular employer–very secretive business. However, that said, the ex employee should have kept the allegations secret–if they indeed occurred. I would consider it a blemish on my record.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaand there goes another humble-born star letting the fame get to him/her.

    And seriously… I’m no fan of Justine Bieber but if some “bodyguard” was attacked by some wimpy boy-ish girl and cries and whine like he did, no wonder he got fired >___>;

    Protect himself, yeah right. So a ex-millitary bodyguard is going to assault Justin Beiber?? Then the bodyguard would get sued,rather he just take a few hits from the “140 lb kid”, and sue for it. Whether this happened or not, thats the plausable reasoning.

    I think this is stupid. He’s just some “heartthrob” lip syncing joke anyways. I wish he’d just go back to Canada and stay there…eh.

    I look forward to the day when the headline reads “Bieber disappears from the music scene.” and he is never heard of again…girly little twit seems to be everywhere and always in trouble.

    You’d better watch out for tiny little fists of fury when the Biebs has PMS!

    HERE IS WHAT HAD HAPPEN.
    JUSTIN WANTED TO DRIVE WHEN HE WAS DRUNK AND UNDER INFLUENCE OF SUBSTANCES. HIS BODY GUARD DID NOT ALLOW HIM AND HIS FRIENDS TO DRIVE. THIS IS WHEN JB STORMED AT HIS BODYGUARDS ASSAULTED AND INSULTED THEM FOR BASICALLY PROTECTING HIS LIFE FROM HIMSELF.
