Justin Bieber slapped with $420k lawsuit from bodyguard

Washington, Jan. 11 (ANI): Justin Bieber's bodyguard has sued the teen idol for 421,261 dollars in unpaid overtime, vacation and other wage benefits.

Moshe Benabou's lawsuit claims that the 18-year-old singer also berated him and repeatedly punched him in his chest in October, after a disagreement between the two about how to handle a member of his entourage, Fox New reported.

The lawsuit also claimed that after Benabou walked away, Bieber fired him.

Benabou said that he had been mistakenly told that he wasn't entitled to receive overtime despite working 14 to 18 hour days between March 2011 and October 2012.

He is seeking unspecified damages on the assault and battery claims. (ANI)
