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.

"TMZ has obtained video FROM Jonathan Cheban. Cheban... a seedy man who pays Kim to follow (stalk) her and to create fictitious stories. He admits to contacting TMZ and starting gossip, shocker. If he enjoys pretending he should contact the DOH on Sushi Couture in Brooklyn and report a rat infestation (JC, JC's boyfriend, Sal, a token female, and paid actors). TMZ, you stated, "As our video shows" and you placed a watermark on the video, Why? It is ironic the quality sucks! Sources tell me, JC is bitter and seedy and should not be left with..., wink.
