Justin Bieber sued for alleged assault by former bodyguard Moshe Benabou


A FORMER bodyguard of Justin Bieber is suing the teenage pop star for allegedly assaulting him after a heated argument between them.

US reports today allege that Moshe Benabou has filed a complaint at a Los Angeles Superior Court against Bieber, whom he claims to have worked for from March 2011 to October 2011.

Documents show Benabou is seeking close to $AU400,000 for assault, battery and overtime fees.

The Hollywood Reporter has published excerpts from the complaint, which state:

“The tirade was apparently triggered by what Justin Bieber perceived as an attempt by Moshe Benabou to keep one member of Mr. Bieber’s entourage physically away from Justin Bieber.

“As part of this tirade, Justin Bieber repeatedly punched Moshe Benabou in the chest and upper body area.

“Mr Benabou did not retaliate or attempt to protect himself out of his concerns for Justin Bieber’s physical well-being.”

Meanwhile, TMZ reports Benabou was sacked after he had lied about previously working as a bodyguard for another major pop star Justin Timberlake.

Why Leonardo DiCaprio Will Have to Wait for His Oscar Moment


Why does the Academy keep snubbing Leonardo DiCaprio? Shouldn’t he have a million Oscars by now? And yet he got no nomination for Django Unchained! Where’s the justice!? –Yalanda, Atlanta, via Twitter Like many a movie fan, you’re confusing the Oscars with the Nuremberg Trials. Academy Awards aren’t about justice. They’re about self-congratulation and a ginormous awards show aimed at garnering as many viewers and sponsorship dollars as humanly possible. Nothing wrong with that, of course. But let’s not spend all of our outrage in one place. As far as Leo’s history with Oscar, yeah, it is a little one-sided. Here’s what I can tell you about why. If it makes you feel any better, people seem to ask this question every year or so. Back in 2011, people were screaming that Leo should have gotten more Oscar love for his roles in Blood Diamond and The Departed. (He only got nominated for the former. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences also has nominated him for his lead role in The Aviator and as a supporting actor in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. No statuette yet.) As Tom O’Neil of the Gold Derby blog pointed out at the time, each particular snub has been its own perfect storm. “Poor Leo has had lousy Oscar luck,” O’Neil told me about DiCaprio’s ill-fated nomination for Blood Diamond–the “wrong film” in a year that also included The Departed, largely considered to be the actor’s better flick. “It’s his own fault,” O’Neil explained then. “If he’d agreed to campaign in lead for The Departed instead of supporting, he would’ve been nominated for that instead and probably would’ve won, riding its Best Picture sweep.” More recently, DiCaprio’s lack of Oscar nods stems not from poor choices, but rather the brutal acting arena. “The competition was too strong,” Fordham University media studies professor Paul Levinson tells me. “In the future, DiCaprio definitely stands a chance.” And even if he doesn’t, he won’t be alone. “Hitchcock never won one for Best Director either, and he’s the greatest director in history,” posits Rob Weiner, film historian at Texas Tech University. “How do you explain that?”

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Take Kids on First Trip to the Snow–See the Family Photos!


Mason Disick learning to ski is totally in the lead for cutest moment of the year so far. But Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick and baby Penelope held their adorable own on the family’s recent trip to Deer Valley, Utah–the kids’ first trip to the snow! Mom, dad and the little ones made the most of the winter wonderland setting, too, swooshing all over the place on skis, going tubing, building a snowman, making snow angels, roasting marshmallows and otherwise enjoying together time while bundled up in puffy coats and snuggly caps. “The family all seemed to be having a great time together, especially Mason,” a source told E! News. “He hadn’t seen snow before, but he took to it right away.” Kourtney and Scott did steal away for some time on the big kid slopes and a dinner date, but this four-day getaway was mainly all about the kids. Looks like they made a ton of happy memories to kick off 2013.
