One of Justin Bieber‘s first legal woes was when former bodyguard Moshe Benabou, who worked with Bieber between 2011-2012, filed a lawsuit against him for assault and unpaid wages. He claims that Justin punched him repeatedly in the chest after a concert because Bieber didn’t like how Benabou handled one of his friends. He also claimed that Justin owed him nearly $420,000 in unpaid wages for overtime hours and unspecified damage.
Well, apparently Justin has wised up and realised, “Hmm, I already have three cases happening in two countries… I should probably start paying up for my bullshit” and indeed he has, as TMZ reports. No word on what in all he handed over to Benabou, but I’m imagining it’s damn near close to what he demanded considering this reads Justin all over.
This is going to be another case of his endless money clearing his name of any number of crimes he’s going to commit over the next decade or so before he inevitably kills someone else or himself. Isn’t that just special?

Justin Bieber must be missing the simplicity of his infancy, because he’s been busy sucking on the nipple of a stripper who’s apparently old enough to be his mother. TMZ published the photo, which somehow made its way online and shows what Big Man Justin gets up to on his off time. Apparently the stripper was hired to “entertain” Justin and Co. while in the recording studio in Los Angeles recently, and he and friend Khalil Sharieff (the same bro who was with him through the DUI debacle) decided to latch on.
Yes, let’s blur the nipple. That’s really the most offensive thing happening here.
I don’t even have words for this – I’ll just allow the mental scarring we’ll all have from looking at this photo take its hold. The fact that they both have their eyes closed takes it to a whole new level, too. What are they thinking about? I suppose it’d be creeper if they were looking at each other, but this is just so many levels of wrong. So many.

Justin Bieber was detained by US customs yesterday afternoon and was subsequently grilled for 5 hours. This Bieber shit keeps getting more and more delightful (for us). Who wants to bet he broke about 30 minutes in and they kept going because it was just so delicious?
The story from TMZ:
UPDATE: We’re told Bieber has just been released by Custom’s officials … after 5-hours of heavy grilling.
Justin Bieber was flagged by U.S. Customs officials when he landed in New Jersey this afternoon because he has 2 pending criminal cases … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Bieber is still being grilled by Customs people … after they searched his plane because they allegedly smelled weed. The search turned up nothing.
We’re told — as a result of the Patriot Act — Customs officials have broad power to flag people coming in from another country when they have an active criminal case or a conviction. Justin currently has an assault case in Canada and a DUI case in Miami Beach.
HOW STUPID IS THIS KID GOING TO GET? Beebs, with all the problems you’ve got, you’re going to get on a plane that smells even faintly of weed???
Lock him up for being an idiot on top of everything else. Good lord. I HAVE HAD IT WITH THIS KID.

You have to sorta hand it to Miley Cyrus for one thing: despite how crazy she acts or how hard she insists she is, she still hasn’t been arrested or actually broken the law. That’s more than we can say for Justin Bieber, and apparently it’s given Miley a bit of a superiority complex. Now she thinks she ought to offer Bieber some advice on how to live right, which mainly includes hiring people to keep you from getting into trouble (wasn’t that what Lil Za was for?) and only partying in your house.
From The Tonight Show with Jay Leno:
“You know what? You got a lot of money. Pay people to make sure you don’t get in trouble. And party at your house. Buy a house and add a club to it.”
“It’s funny because today, I was looking and some of my fans put all these people’s mug shots up. And they were like, ‘I don’t see a Miley mugshot yet’. And I get the most flak out of anybody – and I look and I think, ‘I’m not doing anything illegal’.
“I’m doing a lot of shit, but I’m not doing anything illegal. So that’s alright. Everything I do is legal in California.”
LOL “legal in California”. Yes, we get it, Miley. You smoke a lot of weed. You’re so edgy, but a chill edgy, cos you just wanna live your life and BE. I feel you… but girl, you are no role model. Come on.
Here’s a clip of Miley’s interview (though I’m sure the whole thing is on YouTube elsewhere or will be soon):

Hot on the heels of his DUI/resisting arrest-arrest, Justin Bieber is at it again. Looks like Scooter Braun and Usher‘s counseling skills are still needed, as Justin has now been charged with one count of assault for apparently hitting a limo driver repeatedly on the back of the head back in December. Don’t believe me? Ask the Toronto Police Service:
It is alleged that:
- on Monday, December 30, 2013 at approximately 2:50 a.m., a limousine picked up a group of six people outside a nightclub in the Peter Street and Adelaide Street West area.
- while driving the group to a hotel, an altercation occurred between one of the passengers and the driver of the limousine
- in the course of the altercation, a man struck the limousine driver on the back of the head several times
- the driver stopped the limousine, exited the vehicle and called police
- the man who struck him left the scene before police arrived
On Wednesday, January 29, 2014, Justin Bieber, 19, of Calabasas, California, surrendered to police at 52 Division. He is facing the following charge:
He is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Monday, March 10, 2014, 11 a.m., room 111.
That Justin Bieber – what a gentleman! His mother raised him so well… Oh wait – she didn’t. In any case, Justin returned to Canada yesterday just in time to turn himself into a Toronto police station yesterday night… after which he IMMEDIATELY MADE AN INSTAGRAM VIDEO telling fans to watch his new video, seemingly from still inside the station. Life’s a barrel of fucking laughs to this asshole.
Here’s what his lawyer told People:
“The Toronto Police Service requested that Justin Bieber appear in Toronto today to face an allegation of assault relating to an incident on December 29, 2013,” his lawyer said in a statement to PEOPLE. “We anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summary offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States.”
“Our position is that Mr. Bieber is innocent,” the statement continues. “As the matter is now before the court, it would be inappropriate to address the specifics of either the allegation or of our defense at this time.”
Earlier Wednesday, the Toronto police department wouldn’t confirm that the singer was on his way to the station. Constable Victor Kwong told PEOPLE, “I can only confirm that there was an investigation into the allegation of assault on a limo operator by one of his fares. I cannot confirm however that the Biebs is turning himself in.”
I really never knew it was possible to so ardently dislike a human being you’ve never met before Justin Bieber came along. This kid sends my blood pressure through the roof. Of course, he’ll get off with this just like he does with everything else, so no need to get our hopes up here. The world will just continue to let Justin Bieber terrorize it until he kills someone else or himself. Hurrah.

Because Justin Bieber is rich and white, it’s no surprise that he can pretty much raise whatever hell and break whatever law he’d like and not have to face any consequences for it. Despite the fact that he and his cronies blocked off an entire street in Miami to drag race on, and the fact that Justin got behind the wheel despite the fact that he was drunk and high out of his mind (and was subsequently arrested - which he resisted), apparently all charges have been dropped and the only ones he’ll be facing are for resisting arrest. Yay, justice system!
According to the Miami-Dade County Clerk’s Website, it doesn’t matter that Justin was driving with an expired license while under the influence on a street he took it upon himself to block off and race down at 4am. All that matters is that he mouthed off to the officer who was taking him in. He’ll probably end up with a fine for $200 or something and be done with it. Way to show him that he can’t just do whatever the fuck he wants, law enforcement!
Bieber is due back in court this morning, so hopefully he doesn’t miss his post-intervention flight back from Panama.
