Time for another story on the shedding of Justin Bieber’s innocence. We’re all aware that the b in Bieber might as well stand for blunts, but now it could very well stand for beat down.
A man by the name of Moshe Benabou claims that during his stint as Justin’s bodyguard from March 2011 to Oct. 2012, the 5’7″ singer 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 that Moshe is nothing more than a “disgruntled employee looking for money.” They say the claim that Bieber struck him is “absurd.” Either way, Bieber is successfully shedding his Disney skin. Welcome to the dark side.
