One of Justin Bieber's bodyguards has been caught on camera knifing a paparazzo’s tyres in an enraged attack in Sydney overnight.
The cameraman filmed the incident after Bieber's convoy pulled over in a bid to stop the him from following the 19-year-old singer.
In the footage, the guard approaches the man's car and kicks it several times before using a knife to slash the vehicle's tyre.
The angry bodyguard then tries to rip a bike off the back of the car.
"You're on camera buddy, it's on camera," the man says, as he continues to film from the driver's seat.
The pop star, currently on tour in Australia, spent the night partying at John Ibrahim's Kings Cross nightclub, The Back Room.
This latest controversy comes just two days after the pop star was criticised by Gold Coast mayor Tom Tate and Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie for graffitiing a hotel wall without permission.
The mayor had one of the council's graffiti clean-up kits delivered to the teen's room with the instructions, "clean up your own mess".
