In papers submitted to Los Angeles Superior Court, Benabou claims Bieber attacked him while being egged on by pals backstage at a concert on October 10 last year. Bieber is said to have yelled “You’re fired” at Benabou — who worked for the star from March of 2011 to October of 2012 —as he walked away from the incident.
