Los Angeles - Justin Bieber has been sued by a paparazzo who claims the singer kicked and punched him last year at a Southern California shopping centre.

A lawsuit filed on Wednesday alleges the Baby crooner attacked Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran after Bieber and his then-girlfriend went to the movies at The Commons in Calabasas.

Bieber's representation did not respond to a request for comment.

Duran claims Bieber started to leave the shopping centre in his Mercedes, but got out of his car and sprinted toward him.

Duran says Bieber jumped into the air up to 2.4m away to deliver a martial arts-type kick to the photographer's gut before punching him in the face.

The suit seeks unspecified damages for "severe and extreme emotional distress" and negligence.
