NBC NEWS — Justin Bieber is being sued by a paparazzo.
In a lawsuit filed Wednesday, Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran claims Bieber kicked and punched him last year, as Bieber and a friend were leaving a movie theater in Southern California.
In the suit, Duran alleges Bieber started driving away from the shopping center, but got out of his car, ran towards him, then attacked him with a martial arts type kick to the stomach.
He says the pop star also punched him in the face.
Duran is seeking unspecified damages for severe and extreme emotional distress and negligence.
There's been no comment from Bieber or his representatives.
