Bieber is being sued for £69,000 ($100,000) by a man who claims the singer destroyed his mobile phone in a Texas nightclub.

Robert Earl Morgan has filed a lawsuit against Bieber after the alleged incident took place at club Cle in Houston, Texas. The club was also the location for Bieber’s recent altercation with Post Malone.

Morgan claims Bieber tried his hand at a beer bong, but spilt the drink over his face and clothes. Morgan filmed this on his phone, after which the singer became angry and is said to have grabbed the phone and smashed it, according to TMZ.

The lawsuit claims that Morgan was not given his SIM card back, which contains photos and videos from trips as well as pictures from his grandmother’s 100th birthday party. He also claims the damage has caused him to lose both business contacts and work.

No comment from Bieber’s representatives on the story has been made as yet.
