Justin Bieber is a tiny adult. But he's also one of the most famous people in the world and is thus impervious to consequences. One thing you can do as a tiny adult impervious to consequences that you can't do as a tiny adult subject to consequences (like, say, myself) is punch most people, including an ex-Israeli soldier who is your bodyguard. Such are the privileges of being young and famous.
Bieber's ex-bodyguard Moshe Benabou — the Bieberguard — is suing the large-hatted teen idol for $420,000, claiming he was assaulted as well as being owed unpaid overtime.
According to Benabou — who claims he worked for the singer from March 2011 to Oct. 2012 — JB 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.
Bieber's people say that Benabou is a money-hungry miffed ex-employee, but that's really beside the point. Even if Bieber didn't punch his ex-Israeli military bodyguard multiple times in the chest, the fact is that it's entirely plausible that he did. Because there's no bodyguard in the world that can punch Bieber back.
