Younes Bendjima is now facing yet another lawsuit due to aggressive and violent behavior. According to new reports, Younes supposedly attacked a security guard while at the Coachella Festival this year in April.
In a report from Us Weekly, the publication states that Mr. Mario Herrera filed a civil lawsuit against the former boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian after he tried to go into a washroom with the reality star while at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this year.
Due to the guard working that post, he told Mr. Bendjima that he wasn’t allowed to go into the bathroom with her. Bendjima became enraged and then lifted him up, slammed him up against a wall, and screamed expletives.
As a result of the altercation, Mr. Herrera had to go to the hospital to get treatment for his wounds. The bodyguard is now suing Younes for assault, battery, as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.
Mr. Herrera wants Younes to pay him $5 million. The guard’s lawyer, Jack K. Kechichian, said that celebrity status doesn’t shield an individual from the rule of law.
“You can’t go around hurting people who are just doing their job,” Mr. Kechichian remarked, and that’s what his client was doing: his job. As it was previously reported, this isn’t the first time Younes has found himself in trouble due to violence.
Back in March, Bendjima, who was hanging out with the Toronto rapper, Drake, and Odell Beckham Junior, punched an employee repeatedly in the face outside of a venue; the establishment caught the whole thing on tape.
The victim of the assault filed a police report but didn’t proceed with any charges.
This was shortly before Kardashian and Bendjima broke up in August after dating for two years. A source explained, “Kourtney is good with men for now. She’s pretty secure in herself, and doesn’t feel too bad about losing him.”
Earlier in the month, however, an insider spoke with Us Weekly and suggested they were back together. With that said, Kourtney was hanging out with Luka Sabbat in LA on Friday, September 14th, but a source stated they are just friends.
