Justin Bieber sued by egging neighbor for emotional distress

Justin Bieber has been slapped with a lawsuit from a former neighbor whose house he pelted with eggs, amid allegations the pop superstar's bad boy antics caused him emotional distress.

Jeff Schwartz claims the Baby hitmaker terrorized locals in his old Calabasas, California neighborhood for months before the 2014 egging incident by constantly throwing rowdy parties, racing around the gated compound in his sports cars and allegedly spitting on him when confronted about the disturbances.


In legal papers obtained by TMZ.com, Schwartz recalls one rude encounter with Bieber on Memorial Day holiday in 2013, after he and a friend attempted to reason with the singer when he was reportedly caught driving his Ferrari around at high speeds.


The two men argued Bieber was putting lives at risk in the family-filled neighborhood with his careless driving, but the star's bodyguards hit back, with one security official allegedly blasting him as a "little Jew boy" and repeating, "What are you going to do about it, Jew boy?"


Schwartz goes on to accuse Bieber of hurling obscenities at his wife and young daughter during their multiple run-ins and is now demanding damages for the emotional distress he supposedly caused.


Bieber's dispute with Schwartz culminated in an egging attack in January, 2014, when the singer and his pals vandalised his neighbor's property.


The 21 year old pleaded no contest to the charge and was ordered to complete an anger management course and community service, in addition to paying his victim $80,000 in restitution.


Retired footballer Keyshawn Johnson previously complained about Bieber's speeding antics in 2013 and ended up selling his pad to reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian that August (13) - and moving out of the community.


Bieber moved out of his Calabasas mansion shortly after the egging incident and subsequently offloaded his property to Kourtney's sister Khloe.
