Looks like he might be getting into trouble after all. Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima was accused of allegedly assaulting a security guard during the 2018 Coachella music festival, and the alleged victim is now asking the courts to rule with the default judgment in the assault case — which would be bad news for the 25-year-old model.
According to court documents obtained by In Touch, Mario Herrera claimed that Bendjima assaulted and battered him while he was working security at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California. In January 28, 2019, Herrera filed a request for a judgment against Bendjima, asking that he lose the case by default because he had not responded to the initial complaint.
Herrera first filed a complaint against Bendjima in September 2018, and he filed for a request for a default judgment against Bendjima in October but it was denied because the court did not have proof the Bendjima had been served. According to the documents, the papers were served to Bendjima on January 28 at his West Hollywood apartment. Herrera is demanding $5.35 million in damages.
The incident in question occurred in April 2018. In his initial filing, Hererra claimed that Bendjima tried to follow his then-girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian into a single-gender restroom, according to Us Weekly. Herrera then claimed that he told Bendjima that he could not follow the 39-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. Bendjima then allegedly lifted the security guard into the air and allegedly slammed him into a wall while allegedly yelling profanities at him. Hererra claimed that the injuries he sustained from the alleged attack were so severe that he had to seek treatment at a hospital.
This isn’t the first time Bendjima has been accused of assault. In August 2018, he was allegedly involved in a physical altercation after he punched a restaurant employee in West Hollywood.
