The man who owns the house Justin Bieber infamously egged in 2014 filed a lawsuit this week against the pop star. Jeff Schwartz, of Calabasas, Calif., alleges that Bieber and his bodyguards also made anti-Semitic comments to him over Memorial Day weekend in 2013. TMZ reported they called him "a little Jew boy."
Schwartz is suing Bieber for damages due to emotional distress. He claims Bieber threw large parties, spit on him and yelled obscenities at his wife and daughters. When Schwartz and a friend once asked Bieber to stop drag racing because it was dangerous, one of the singer's bodyguards taunted him, saying, "What are you going to do about it, Jew boy?"
Bieber, 21, was ordered last year to pay Schwartz, an online auto mogul, $80,900 after he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor vandalism charge for egging the man's house. Bieber also was sentenced to two years of probation and five days of community service, and was ordered to attend an anger management course. "He's a punk. He thinks he's invincible. He can't continue to have a bunch of enablers around him," Suzie Schwartz told TMZ in 2013. "He can't do this to people."
Bieber is the subject of a highly anticipated Comedy Central roast to be aired March 30. At the end of the event, the star was allowed to say a few words -- which he took as a chance to apologize for his actions, he told Ellen DeGeneres.
"I was just talking about it being a new chapter for me and basically saying that I'm sorry for the stuff that I’ve done," Bieber said. "It's not like ... I’m not searching for people's approval, but I want people to know that that’s not me and I was doing stuff that wasn't me. A lot of times we pretend so that we can fit in and we end up looking like the douchebag, and that was kind of me."
