TEEN pop star Justin Bieber is being sued for allegedly battering one of his 6ft bodyguards. Ex-Israeli soldier Moshe Benabou, 45, claims the singer, 18, punched his chest then fired him in LA. He wants damages plus £260,000 wages. Benabou - who claims he was offended and “harmed” by the tirade even though he towers over pop star - has filed court papers alleging assault and battery.

In papers submitted to Los Angeles Superior Court, Benabou claims Bieber attacked him while being egged on by pals backstage at a concert on October 10 last year.

Bieber is said to have yelled “You’re fired” at Benabou - who worked for the star from March of 2011 to October of 2012 - as he walked away from the incident. But sources close to Bieber say Benabou was sacked after it was discovered he lied when he claimed he had worked for pop star Justin Timberlake on his CV. His management made no comment on the bodyguard’s claims yesterday.            –TS
