A lawsuit filed in Texas against music star Justin Bieber Tuesday is seeking $75,000 in damages, alleging that Bieber destroyed a man’s cellphone as he videotaped Bieber unsuccessfully drinking from a beer bong at a club last month.

Robert Earl Morgan said in the lawsuit filed in Harris County that Bieber scolded him, grabbed the phone and smashed it into pieces in the club after an April 9 concert in Houston. Morgan, a sales director for an unidentified company, said he lost photos and important information.

According to Fox 4 News, Morgan lost business contacts, information, pictures from his grandmother’s 100th birthday and more than 5,000 pictures and videos.

Bieber was “clearly a novice” using the funnel-like bong and spilled beer all over himself, the lawsuit said.

Bieber has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
