(Newser) – Maybe he'll get a settlement, but we're guessing one of Justin Bieber's former bodyguards isn't going to benefit much in the street-cred department on this one: Moshe Benabou, a burly former Israeli soldier, says the skinny teenager roughed him up during an argument, reports AP. Benabou is suing, claiming that Biebs yelled at him and punched him repeatedly in the chest during the disagreement. He also wants about $420,000 in unpaid overtime.
