Justin Bieber Sued For Allegedly Punching Bodyguard
Canadian pop star Justin Bieber is reportedly being sued by his former bodyguard for lashing out at him. The "Baby" singer allegedly punched his ex-Israeli soldier minder in the chest several times during an argument in LA last year (2012) before firing him as he walked away, according to Sky News report. Moshe Benabou's lawsuit against Bieber seeks an unspecified amount in damages for the assault accusations and more than $420,000 in lost overtime and other wages, which he claims was owed to him. In a statement, Mr Benabou's attorney, Ilan Heimanson, wrote (via NME): "For nearly two years Mr Benabou devoted himself completely to ensuring Mr Bieber's personal safety. Mr Benabou deserved, as does any employee, to be treated with respect, dignity and in accordance with the law. Unfortunately, he was not." Bieber's representatives have dismissed the claims made by Moshe Benabou saying the accusation that Bieber struck him is "absurd" and the ex-bodyguard was nothing more than a "disgruntled employee looking for money", says TMZ. Meanwhile, online forum 4Chan has been criticised after it emerged that users of the site had conspired to convince Bieber fans to cut themselves and post the pictures online in an attempt to dissuade the teen singer from smoking marijuana. YoungMinds, a British charity that aims to improve the mental health of young people, labelled the joke "irresponsible, reprehensible and extremely dangerous." Representative Lucie Russell said: "Self harming is not a fashion, fad or statement. It's a signal that young people are experiencing extreme distress and need help. Cutting is a self-destructive act that is a way of coping with overwhelming emotions."
