Justin Bieber is making the headlines yet again, and for the wrong reasons too.
According to TMZ, the Canadian pop star has been slammed with a lawsuit by his former neighbours who claim he hurled anti-Semitic comments their way.
The drama with the neighbours, Jeffrey and Suzanne Schwartz, started in 2014 when the singer egged their home during an altercation in 2014. The couple dragged him to court and won $80k which they used in repairing the damages he did.
Shortly after, Jeffrey said the bad press ruined his car sales business, and so he filed emotional distress lawsuit and loss of income. Now, the couple have upped their lawsuit, adding that the singer carried a campaign of terror against them and hurling slur words while at it.
“Threatening a man with body harm while calling him a ‘little Jew boy’ and intimidating him with ‘what are you going to do about it, Jew boy?’ is a hate crime,” said the documents their lawyers filed in court.
However, Bieber’s lawyer say the claims are preposterous. He alleges that Jeffrey and Suzanne Schwarz already admitted that hate slurs was made by Bieber’s bodyguard and not the singer himself.
Well, this doesn’t look good at all for the singer – hate crimes are not a joke in the United States, plus the singer has a record of nasty altercations with fans. TMZ adds that the couple stand a chance of winning more in damages.
We wonder how this will turn out for Bieber.
