Justin Bieber Settles Lawsuit with Former Bodyguard Who Said Bieber Attacked Him

Premiere Of Open Road Films' "Justin Bieber's Believe" - Red Carpet

Man, Justin Bieber is having a rough couple weeks, huh? First he gets arrested for drunk driving, drugging, and drag racing, and now he just paid a rather sizable chunk to a former bodyguard to get him to stop talking about the time Bieber supposedly attacked him. Kid just doesn’t seem to be catching a break. The irony is, Justin Bieber settles lawsuit, but we will never know for just how much. Safe to say that bodyguard no longer has to guard bodies, though.

The bodyguard’s name is Moshe Benebou, and he claims Bieber hit him at one point back stage while he was throwing a fit back in 2012. Generally, when an artist “settles out of court”, that means they are accepting guilt and paying the person off for less trouble. So Justin Bieber settles lawsuit, and now both sides are “happy”, but we will never know what went down or what numbers were agreed to. We just know Moshe Benebou won’t be talking about it anymore publicly.

As for Justin Bieber, not really sure how the rest of 2014 is going to play out for him. Seems it’s off to a bumpy start, for sure. We will keep you up to date on all the Bieber news as we get it.
