The singer is accused of destroying Robert Earl Morgan’s mobile phone when he tried to record footage of him attempting to chug a beer bong
Justin Bieber is being sued for $100,000 over claims he smashed up a mobile phone, according to reports in the US.
The 22-year-old is accused of destroying Robert Earl Morgan’s mobile phone when he tried to record footage of the singer attempting to chug a beer bong.
The incident allegedly took place at Cle nightclub in Houston, Texas, last month.
According to the lawsuit filed by Morgan and obtained by TMZ, Justin became “enraged, grabbed his cell phone and smashed it to pieces”.
He is suing for such a large amount because the phone contained impossible to replace pictures, including those of his grandmother’s 100th birthday party and up to 5,000 images and videos from his travels.
Morgan also claims that he lost a number of business contacts when the phone was destroyed.
The alleged incident is believed to have taken place on the same night Bieber was spotted mischievously stubbing a cigarette out on his support act Post Malone’s arm.
Shocking pictures emerged days later showing Malone reaching an arm out and grabbing the Canadian pop star – who appears startled – by the throat.
