Moshe Benabou, Justin Bieber's former bodyguard, has filed a complaint in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming the teen pop star assaulted him. The Hollywood Reported published excerpts from the complaint, where Benabou recounts an incident where Bieber was being egged on by his friends.
"The tirade was apparently triggered by what Justin Bieber perceived as an attempt by Moshe Benabou to keep one member of Mr. Bieber's entourage physically away from Justin Biebe. As part of this tirade, Justin Bieber repeatedly punched Moshe Benabou in the chest and upper body area. Mr. Benabou did not retaliate or attempt to protect himself out of his concerns for Justin Bieber's physical well-being."
When Benabou turned and walked away from Justin, the superstar reportedly told his bodyguard that he was fired. Benabou is also suing both Bieber and BT Touring for failing to pay his overtime compensation.
In total, Benabou is $421,261 in damages.
