Justin Bieber is being sued by photographer Jeffrey Binion due to an incident in June 2013, where the photographer accused the star of being mastermind of attacks and threats he received from his bodyguards. In a recent interview with In Touch Weekly, one source close to the said details of the testimony of his manager, Scooter Braun.
With lawsuits filed by photographer Jeffrey Binion against Justin Bieber , the In Touch Weekly learned that Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun , allegedly stated that Justin is responsible for the actions of his security team during a deposition.
“He basically said Justin assumes all responsibility with his bodyguards since he was 18,” a source close to the exclusively told In Touch Weekly .
“Scooter said that even 18 years Justin, Pattie [Justin's mom] was responsible for the security of Justin, so that when he turned 18 and decided he wanted total control in the choice of his bodyguards; he hired their own bodyguards and took complete control of his safety. Essentially, if you look back at the incidents that Justin was with his bodyguards in the past basically started after he took control of his security team. “
Specifically, Binion is suing Justin because of an incident that occurred in June 2013 – more than a year after the singer turned 18. According to the photographer, Justin’s bodyguard, Hugo Hesny allegedly threw against a wall, grabbed him by the neck and “pulled a gun”, trying to steal his memory card. Hesny denied he assaulted a photographer while working for Justin.
He is also suing Justin, claiming that the singer commanded to do that. According to the source, this is not a typical behavior of the troubled star when it comes to managing his team.
“If the bodyguard Justin chases, attacks and takes cameras of photographers, Justin was responsible for that, because it is he who manages his own safety” , the source told In Touch. “Scooter kinda let it all in the hands Justin ” .
While Scooter is not ashamed to put the responsibility on his young client, it also gave us an insight into his close relationship with Justin, and even defends him when it comes to another incident that occurred in Los Angeles, shortly after the singer’s 18th years, when he was with the then girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
“Scooter also said, however, that he and Justin are like a family, and he can not sleep at night without calling the bodyguard Justin and making sure everything is fine,” the source exclusively told In Touch Weekly.
“Scooter also said that when Justin himself attacked a photographer in Los Angeles, was because he felt that he and Selena were being threatened by the photographer, and that’s why he attacked him physically.”
Justin will complete one more testimony to the case – during which he will be forced to answer additional questions he refused to answer during his testimony in March.
