The melee took place at Nobu restaurant in Mayfair, London on Tuesday night, August 2, where Timberlake dined with his "Friends with Benefits" co-star and actress Mila Kunis and some friends.
Photos documenting the chaotic scene outside the restaurant capture the bodyguard swinging his foot toward the photographer, who was already laying on the ground. According to reports, the alleged altercation also involved some words and pushing.
In related news, Timberlake's bodyguard isn't the only one coming to his defense. At a recent press junket for "Friends with Benefits" in Moscow, his co-star Mila told off a reporter for asking him why he is now focusing on movies instead of music. Replying in fluent Russian, she said, "Why movies? Why not? What kind of question is that? Why are you here?"
