Another day, another photographer claiming Justin Bieber and his entourage stepped over the line.
In this latest report, coming from TMZ, photog Aja Oxman claims Justin orchestrated “a brutal attack against him.” Last November, the paparazzo was on a public beach and trying to snap Justin jumping off a cliff in Hawaii (remember that?) when he says Justin’s bodyguard lifted him up in a choke hold and slammed him against the hood of a nearby car. That’s some action movie level s—t going down right there.
Aja claims in his lawsuit that the Canadian pop star “enjoyed the beating” after ordering his guard to “Go get his memory card and do whatever you have to do to get that card.”
Unfortunately for the bodyguard, Dwayne Patterson, doing whatever he had to do led to being booked for third-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal property damage (this despite Aja’s claims Dwayne and Biebs destroyed his camera together). Justin’s people haven’t responded to TMZ’s request for comment about the matter.
This latest claim falls right in line with the parcel of other suits filed from members of the paparazzi against Justin and his team including one from as recently as May that also involves Dwayne. Upside: If Biebs has to give another epic deposition, maybe we’ll finally get some clarity about him and Selena Gomez.
