Jonathan Cheban

Bodyguard Punches Knife-Wielding Guy ...

Over Sushi [VIDEO]

Exclusive Video

0521-jon-ceban-launch-3TMZ has obtained video of reality star Jonathan Cheban's bodyguard socking an aggressive stranger in the face. 

Cheban ... a fixture on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" ... was grabbing a late dinner with his bodyguard and 3 friends at Sushi Couture in Brooklyn Sunday night when a random stranger started heckling Jonathan. 

We're told Jonathan Instagrammed he was at the restaurant ... then a preppy-looking dude with a knife hanging off his belt approached his table, but was blocked by bodyguard "Sal the Contractor." The guy even followed Jonathan to the bathroom.

Sources in the restaurant tell us the instigator waited until the end of the night, to lunge at Jonathan as his entourage got up to leave. That's when Sal slammed a punch into the dude's face, as our video shows.

We're told the guy backed down and left after the punch. Smart.

Well, it seems clear that the bodyguards put their hands on the guy first, and acted in an intimidating manner. Why are they allowed to touch people? And WHY WOULD THIS IDIOT FEEL IMPORTANT ENOUGH to need a bodyguard? I didn't see the guy do anything to Cheban, and people in restaurants can say what they want to anyone, and it's up to the management to ask them to leave if they are disruptive, but a bodyguard doesn't just get to accost someone. Where was this filmed?

I remember the good old days when you actually had to be talented to be famous enough for someone to attack you.

On the for real side, this reality "star" who nobody knows WTF he is, must live a whacked life if he needs a bodyguard and nobody knows him barely.

Lunge, what lunge? And who is this dude that he needs a bodyguard? Roger Federer is one of the 4-5 most famous people on Earth and he travels alone everywhere, but some 7th lead on a dumb American reality show has a bodyguard?

It wasn't a heckler. It was Jonathan's lover trying to get John to admit he was blowing Harvey.

Johnathan must hate it when he gets pushed to the side, especially when Kanye decides he wants to make time to play dress up with his bimbo Karbie. Don't worry Johnny boy, she will need you to watch her get dressed once this charade is over with this weekend and he will be back to travelling without her, and we all know she can't be alone.

I see a guy receiving a cheap while someone else has him mostly distracted. Looks to me like they followed him into a separate room and this Cheban person had no involvement.
