A paparazzi who has been following Justin around filmed Justin’s bodyguard slashing his tires with a knife in Sydney tonight.

After following Justin’s car around for a distance, JB’s convoy pulled over to try to stop the paparazzi from following their car.

In the footage, the bodyguard approaches the pap’s car and tells him to stop following them. After some argument he kicks the car before slashing the vehicle’s tire. The bodyguard then rips a bike off the back of the car.


From the video you can tell this paparazzi is the type that is looking for trouble. He’s egging the bodyguard (who’s already angry) on.

But I do think his bodyguards needs to keep calm. What they do affects JB’s reputation.

Get ready for some crazy headlines from this.


A bodyguard in Justin’s security team has been arrested in Kauai, Hawaii.

Justin went to Shipwreck’s Beach yesterday to jump off the cliff there. A photographer was there snapping pictures of JB until one of Justin’s bodyguards approached him and demanded the pictures be deleted. When the photog refused, he claimed that the bodyguard, Dwayne Patterson, assaulted him and damaged his camera.

The photographer was not hurt but Patterson was booked for third degree assault and 4th degree criminal property damage and was released on $3,000 bail.

Justin Bieber was reportedly trying to leave Los Angeles International Airport today when an aggressive photographer refused to get out of the way.

That’s when Bieber’s bodyguard, Moshe Benabou, did what he does best—protecting the Biebs.

Los Angeles Airport Police told E! News in a statement,

“Today at approximately 2:15 p.m., Los Angeles Airport Police observed what appeared to be a crowd control incident at Terminal 4 on the upper departures level involving Justin Bieber. An investigation revealed an altercation occurred between an unnamed body guard (victim) and a photographer (paparazzi) at the location.”

The photographer was ultimately taken away by police.

“Twenty-one-year-old Alex Portillo, the photographer, a resident of Van Nuys, Calif., was arrested and transported to the Airport Police Station for pre-booking procedures. He was later transported to the LAPD Pacific Division Jail and booked for California Penal Code Section 245—Assault with a Deadly Weapon—a felony.”

The Los Angeles Airport Police clarified that Portillo’s handheld video camera in the incident is being considered as the weapon. Any additional details of the incident are part of the investigation and cannot be released.

Bieber was at the airport picking up his family. He tweeted about meeting up with them, but never mentioned the incident,

“I have my family with me…been a while. BEST FEELING. I love being a BIG BROTHER! #FAMILY,”
