Justin Bieber

SUED For MMA Moves

On Paparazzo

EXCLUSIVE

0626_justin_bieber_shoe_fight_akm_gsi_article
Little Justin Bieber has been sued by a photographer who claims the singer delivered a crushing MMA-type kick to his abdomen, after a perfectly lovely date with then-GF Selena Gomez.

Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran claims when he was shooting the then-couple at The Commons in Calabasas last year ... Justin was trying to maneuver his brand spanking new Mercedes out of the parking lot.  The suit alleges Justin became frustrated at the photogs, jumped out of the car and "delivered a martial arts-type kick ... in the lower rib cage on the left side of his abdomen." 

But the suit alleges the attack continued, when Justin used his left fist to punch the photog on the right side of his face.  Justin allegedly then pushed the photog against a parked car.  The suit claims Selena actually returned to the scene a few minutes later to look for her cell phone and apologized for Justin.

The lawsuit is interesting ... citing a litany of alleged misdeeds committed by JB, including assaulting a former bodyguard, bullying a woman, driving at reckless speeds in his gated community, stealing a pap's SIM card and threatening to kill a neighbor.

The photog doesn't give a specific amount he wants for the alleged assault and battery.

The paps get in their faces and on their way for a reason especially holding a camera. They want backlash for an easy pay day. Sad really.

I'm not a fan of Bieber or anything he does, however, I'm of the opinion that all of Greater Los Angeles, save for dining areas and nightclubs, should be declared "no rights for paparazzi" zones. Unless these leaches are harassing celebrities in designated safe zones (outside nightclubs, restaurants, red carpet events), it should be legal to insult, beat, vandalize, stab, or even shoot the paps with no legal recourse. Then we'll see if they still want to hound and harass these stars.

In this particular, Justin was way out in Calabasas enjoying a day with his beard, and this POS had to stalk him. He wasn't racing around the neighborhood making a "newsworthy" spectacle of himself, so this pap was just invading what little bit of privacy the kid deserves. Seriously, we see far too much of Biebs already. Do we really need shots of him picking up his dry cleaning?

As far as I'm concerned, Bieber should have the right to sue the pap, save for the fact thatalifornia is already bogged down with too many frivilous lawsuits.

I have no use whatsoever for the beaver, but then again I have no sympathy for the paps getting the snot kicked out of them for being the pests that they are.

Besides the insane Justin Bieber haters here on TMZ, who is going to believe this paparazzi dude? Let's see this is the 2nd person who tried to sue Justin for assault. The 1st being his former bodyguard who claimed Justin beat him up, now this clown. Money hungry vultures!

Come on guy's! We sent you a nice little white boy who gives to Charities and sings songs like " Pray ." And now look at him! No more talk about sending him back to Canada until he's in the condition that we sent him in.
