Ex-bodyguard sues for assault
Moshe Benabou the ex-bodyguard for the”5’7″ 130 lbs” rock star Justin Bieber, is suing Bieber claiming he is owed more than $420,000 in unpaid overtime.
The ex-bodyguard worked for Bieber from March 2011 to October 2012. During that time the Israeli bodyguard and former soldier claims punched him in the chest multiple times during a disagreement.
According to TMZ, the “As Long as You Love Me” singer berated Benabou and punched him in the chest multiple times during a particularly heated incident. The alleged beating occurred when the two disagreed about how to handle a member of Bieber’s entourage.
“This whole thing is baseless and meritless,” a source counters to Us Weekly. “Justin never hit him and couldn’t! He is so much smaller. This whole thing is a lie.”
Technically a bodyguard gives up his right to defend himself when he / she takes on a client third party self defense, in this case it’s not surprising Beiber might feel that his protector is chattel, to do with and say what he wants to, that is Moshe’s fault, for sure but at no point does a client have the right to throw a tantrum and put hands on any staff person and your not paying your Security bill either, fine lets go to Judge Judy, cause if he was unprofessional enough to touch justin back…..that become news worthy….in a not so good way for him
Good job Moshe, let this spoiled punk to understand that we are people too
I have a hard time understanding how a bodyguard like that would let things get that far out of control, IF that is what really happend. I have a hard time believing it……. and why the little runt Beiber would hire such a person. Both are whinning cry babies.
