Paulina Rubio is one person you don’t want to offend, just ask her personal assistant who got a beating all because the singer had to sit in the coach flight section to Mexico.
The alleged victim is Felipe Betancur who claims he worked for Rubio from August until just a few days ago. He says his boss “flipped out” at a Miami airport.
According to Betancur’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in Florida, Rubio missed her plane from Miami to Mexico last weekend and put Betancur in charge of getting her on the next flight out.
Betancur claims there were no First Class seats remaining on the next flight, and when he informed her of the coach alternative, she got became angry immediately and took it out on him.
In his suit, Betancur claims Rubio got incredibly violent toward him once they boarded the plane, unleashing a flurry of punches, kicks and even slaps. He claims she also pelted him with various objects.
Betancur claims he suffered serious injuries from her attack — including abrasions and contusions on his shins and arms. He also claims he suffered emotional damage.
Betancur says he quit his job as soon as they returned to Miami. He wants Rubio to fork over more than $250k to pay for damages.
It’s not the first time Rubio has been accused of having a short temper. She was arrested last year after allegedly getting into a screaming match with police in Florida.
