Justin Bieber is being sued by his former neighbor, Jeff Schwartz — whose house he infamously egged — for causing him and his wife emotional distress, specifically claiming the pop star’s bodyguard called him a “little Jew boy,” TMZ reports.
Bieber’s bodyguard reportedly hurled the insult during two separate incidents, first over Memorial Day weekend of 2013 and again in January 2014, before Schwartz’s house was egged.
According to the lawsuit, the 2013 incident took place after Schwartz and a friend confronted Bieber for speeding around their Calabasas, California neighborhood in his Ferrari and endangering the lives of other residents. Schwartz alleges that Bieber’s bodyguards arrived soon after and one repeatedly said, “What are you going to do about it, Jew boy?”
Schwartz’s lawsuit also enumerates Bieber’s other unneighborly conduct such as shouting obscenities at his wife and daughter, throwing loud parties, drag racing and spitting on Schwartz. It is unclear how much Schwartz is seeking in damages.
Bieber previously shelled out $80,900 dollars to Schwartz after pleading no contest to one count of misdemeanor vandalism for egging his house. Bieber was also ordered to complete five days of community service, attend an anger management program and stay away from Schwartz and his family for two years.
The egging incident has become one of Bieber’s most notorious outbursts in a string of many over the past few years. It even inspired a promo for the pop star’s upcoming Comedy Central roast, in which a shirtless Bieber was pelted with eggs. The roast — which was held this weekend but will air on Comedy Central on March 30th — was the self-effacing capstone to Bieber’s current apology tour, which previously found him coming clean about his bad behavior on Facebook and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
