Jonathan Cheban

Bodyguard Punches Knife-Wielding Guy ...

Over Sushi [VIDEO]

5/21/2014 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

These reality "stars" and their bodyguards need to get over themselves! Who the phuck gave that bodyguard the right to punch the "instigator"? He has EVERY RIGHT to say what he wants to and that prick Jonathan should shut up and take it like his pig friend kim!

By "going to the restroom," I believe this was just a Grindr hook-up gone wrong. Ask that ice skater and his bitch.

This goof is only famous because he has his head far up Kim Kardashians ass, and she is only famous because she got peed on

What a dingus Jonathon is. Lol, he probably has a bodyguard because a lot of dudes talk **** to him. He has a very punchable face.

If you don't want people to know where you are, don't IG or tweet about it until you're leaving. Also, having a pocketknife on your belt is not "wielding a knife." Talking smack to a douche doesn't warrant being attacked by his bodyguard. I smell a victorious lawsuit/settlement coming soon.

Who cares and why are we talking about him. Oh ya, he is an alledged partner in the restaurant so its a fake story
to get the name out. Come on, how dumb does one have to be! And bodyguard? laughable...Kims +1 needs a guard.
