Problems are never ending for famous singer Justin Bieber. According to the latest reports, the star has actually been sued for destroying the iPhone of a man.
The lawsuit seeks $100,000 in damages. The legal proceedings against Bieber were filed by Robert Earl Morgan, which claimed that he tried to record footage of Justin at the time when the events occurred.
So, Earl was at the Cle nightclub, in Houston, Texas, last month when the incident happened. Bieber visited the venue with his staff after performing for his Purpose World Tour.
TMZ reported that the plaintiff claimed that Justin destroyed his phone when he tried to film him attempting to chug beer, but being a novice at this, Justin spilled alcohol all over himself, the lawsuit said.
“Unfortunately, for Bieber he was clearly a novice because as he attempted to chug his beverage through the beer-bong,” the legal papers indicated, adding that “he miscalculated the amount of beer he could intake and beer spilled all over himself, his clothes, and on his face.” Before that, the singer was seen smoking and drinking. Well, Justin was not happy at all with this, so he became “enraged, grabbed his cell phone and smashed it to pieces.”
The lawsuit claimed that the man asked an important sum of money in damages, $100,000, because the phone contained some impossible to replace pictures, including photos of his grandmother, from her 100th birthday. He claimed he stored on the phone up to 5,000 images and videos from his voyages and travels. The plaintiff also claimed he lost a series of business contacts because Bieber destroyed his phone.
“Bieber is fully aware that when he makes appearances at public locations, especially night clubs, there is going to be an abundance of people who will be taking his picture and documenting his actions,” the lawsuit said. Earl Morgan also said that Justin’s staff threw him out of the club after the incident occurred and that he offered to delete the footage, but this did not stop Bieber.
If Justin will decide to reach a settlement with the plaintiff or not, it is something yet to be found out. However, this is by far the first time when the famous singer has been targeted by a lawsuit.
