As his previously squeaky clean image continues to fade away, Justin Bieber was recently accused of assaulting one of his former bodyguards.

According to TMZ, the "Beauty and a Beat" singer faces a lawsuit for assault and battery from Moshe Benabou, who worked for the Biebs from March 2011 to October 2012.

In the complaint, the ex-member of the Israeli army was allegedly berated and punched in the chest multiple times during an argument with the young pop star.

In addition to damages for the assault and battery itself, Benabou is also seeking $420,000 in unpaid overtime.
