The Bieb’s Rough Year Continues

Perhaps it all started with what Justin Bieber called his "worst birthday." Since he turned 19 on March 1, it seems his troubles have multiplied.

Lucinda Fisher at abcnews.com reports his latest flap is with a photographer, who is suing him and one of his bodyguards for allegedly attacking him and stealing his memory card.

In a lawsuit filed Sunday in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court, 56-year-old photographer Jeffrey Binion says the singer ordered his bodyguard Hugo Hesny to "forcibly" take Binion's memory card after the lensmen snapped a picture of Bieber outside a recording studio on June 5.

Binion said Hesny "threw [him] against a wall, began choking him, and threatened [him] with a gun," while three other bodyguards removed the memory card from his camera.

Binion's lawyer, Russell Adler, said his client received injuries to his throat and is suing Bieber and his bodyguard for $15,000 in damages.

"Justin Bieber is now an adult, and he should act like one," Adler said in a statement to ABC News.

A rep for Bieber did not respond to ABC News' request for comment.
