Justin Bieber and Paparazzi fight (May 2012)
Justin Bieber has been sued by a paparazzo who claims he kicked and punched him last year at a Southern California shopping center.
A lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges Justin attacked Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran after he and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez went to the movies at The Commons in Calabasas.
Duran claims Justin started to leave the shopping center in his Mercedes, but got out of his car and sprinted toward him.
The pap says Justin jumped into the air from 6 to 8 feet away to deliver a martial arts-type kick to the photographer’s gut before punching him in the face.
The suit seeks unspecified damages for “severe and extreme emotional distress” and negligence.
JB’s representatives did not respond to a request for comment.
