Justin Bieber
's lawyer is clocking more hours than a 7-Eleven -- the singer just settled a lawsuit with his pissed off ex-bodyguard ... after the man sued him for assault and battery.

As we reported, Moshe Benabou -- an ex-Israeli soldier who worked as Bieber's bodyguard from 2011- 2012 -- claimed Bieber berated him and punched him in the chest multiple times after a concert ... because Bieber didn't like the way Benabou handled one of his friends.

Benabou sued for assault and battery -- as well as for more than $420,000 in unpaid overtime -- demanding unspecified damages.

Now, Justin has settled up -- which is definitely a good thing considering his hectic legal schedule these days -- 3 outstanding criminal investigations in 2 countries.

Justin Bieber ... the hits just keep on coming.

So this ISN'T the limo driver case? Who effs with an ex-Israeli SF? Funny side note: when I typed "effs" my spellchecker changed it to "eggs". It knows I'm putting Beaver on blast.

This Moshe guy lived In my building until a couple of months ago... He packed up and moved out in the middle of the night. No notice, nothing.

I'd like to see The Bieb try to go one day without his bodyguards. I bet he'd end up dead. You shouldn't treat your protectors like trash loser.

Bieber 6th grade drop out, Jenner tramps 8th grade drop outs. The youth of today are doomed.
