A former neighbor of Justin Bieber has filed a lawsuit against the pop star, alleging emotional distress and including an allegation of anti-Semitism from the Bieber camp.
TMZ.com reports that the suit was filed by Jeff Schwartz, the same neighbor whose house was targeted in a January 2014 egging incident that got Bieber into hot water on a vandalism charge. Bieber wound up pleading no contest in the egging case, getting probation and paying $80,000 for repairs to the house, the report notes.
In the new lawsuit, Schwartz says Bieber’s bodyguard called him “little Jew boy,” and alleges he and his wife have suffered emotional distress. The incident reportedly occurred months before the house was egged.
TMZ reports that Schwartz is “claiming Bieber and his crew terrorized their Calabasas neighborhood while JB lived there, with loud parties, drag races and disgusting encounters which included Justin spitting on him, something Justin has denied.”
Schwartz also says Bieber used obscenities against Schwartz’s wife and daughter, who was a minor.
“Schwartz claims on Memorial Day weekend of 2013, Bieber was speeding around the neighborhood in his Ferrari,” TMZ reports. “Schwartz and a friend walked over to Bieber and told him to stop because he was putting lives at risk. He claims Bieber’s bodyguards then came out and one of them called him a ‘little Jew boy,’ and repeatedly said, ‘What are you going to do about it, Jew boy?'”
