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.

This dude is going to get his ass kicked some day and it's going to be epic. Glad the bodyguard had the sense to be cool and get that money, though.

Spending all of his money on stupid things.....trickle down economics. It trickles down to the lawyers.

Just My Opinion    

Ok, this dude was his body guard, and Justin used this guy as a punching bag, because he was pissed off? These body guards should throw Kid Lame Azz in the ring to fight Big Bubba Jonson, and go out to lunch somewhere.
Show so damn azz respect, Justin, or no one will guard your skinny little upper tee butt, or want to carry your lame azz anywhere. As in..no more being carried up the great wall of China, dude. I suggest going to workout in a gym that has a punching bag there, when you get p!ssed and want to hit someone. If nothing else, you will build yourself up, so if you do not change your ways, you might make it to round 2 before Bubba kicks your azz one day. LOL

You don't mess with Israeli soldiers. He should of went Krav Maga on him and pulled his testicles through his nostrils. They can really do that too.

Bieber is a twerp - don't get me wrong - but this bodyguard is a total whimp if he has to sue the little twerp for assault and battery. Surely that will be the end of his 'bodyguard' career. Get a spine.

Can we try to be a bit more positive and remember that he's just a kid making very public mistakes? He's turning 20 in A MONTH. Maybe we can be supportive...wish him a happy birthday? http://happy20thjustin.com/
