Justin Bieber has settled a legal dispute with a former bodyguard Moshu Benabou — who had accused Justin of attacking him backstage at a concert — and sued him for $420,000.
Moshe Benabou filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court in January 2013 accusing Justin of hitting him during a “tirade” in October 2012. And The lawsuit said:
The tirade was apparently triggered by what Justin Bieber perceived as an attempt by Moshe Benabou to keep one member of Mr. Bieber’s entourage physically away from Justin Bieber. As part of this tirade, Justin Bieber repeatedly punched Moshe Benabou in the chest and upper body area. Mr. Benabou did not retaliate or attempt to protect himself out of his concerns for Justin Bieber’s physical well-being.
The lawsuit could have gone to trial in Los Angeles later this month if it had not been settled.
Justin’s lawyer Howard Weitzman told CNN Monday (Feb 3, 2014):
The matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties, and the case has been dismissed.
