Justin Bieber sued by ex-bodyguard… “He punched & berated me!”

Justin Bieber beat the crap out of one of his Israeli bodyguards … and berated the former soldier after a disagreement … this according to a new lawsuit.

Justin Bieber

Biebs — who’s 5’7″ and MAYBE 130 lbs — is being sued by Moshe Benabou, an ex-member of the Israeli army.

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.

But sources in Bieber’s camp tell TMZ … Moshe is nothing more than a “disgruntled employee looking for money.” They say the claim that Bieber struck him is “absurd.”

As for why Moshe was fired, our sources say he told multiple lies including a big one — that he had worked closely with Justin Timberlake before being hired by Bieber.

TMZ sources say it was discovered that he never worked for JT a day in his life.

You may recall, Benabou was the guy who got into a physical confrontation with a photog at LAX back in February. After a brief struggle, both men fell to the ground … and Benabou landed a pretty solid punch while the pap was being restrained by another person.

Nonetheless, sources say Justin and company think Moshe is a “good guy” and would like to have a good relationship with him.
