Perhaps it all started with what Justin Bieber called his "worst birthday." Since he turned 19 on March 1, it seems his troubles have multiplied.
His latest flap is with a photographer, who is suing him and one of his bodyguards for allegedly attacking him and stealing his memory card.
In a lawsuit filed Sunday in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court, 56-year-old photographer Jeffrey Binion says the singer ordered his bodyguard Hugo Hesny to "forcibly" take Binion's memory card after the lensmen snapped a picture of Bieber outside a recording studio on June 5.
Binion said Hesny "threw [him] against a wall, began choking him, and threatened [him] with a gun," while three other bodyguards removed the memory card from his camera.
Binion's lawyer, Russell Adler, said his client received injuries to his throat and is suing Bieber and his bodyguard for $15,000 in damages.
"Justin Bieber is now an adult, and he should act like one," Adler said in a statement to ABC News.
A rep for Bieber did not respond to ABC News' request for comment.

|Bieber's 'Worst Birthday'|
On March 1, Bieber tweeted that he had a "big night ahead," but then hours later, the pop star admitted to his followers that it was his "worst birthday." Reports surfaced that the birthday boy and his entourage were asked to leave London club Cirque du Soir following a disagreement, reportedly over the presence of underage guests.
Bieber was quick to challenge the reports, writing on Instagram that the club invented the story to save face, because he and his crew decided they didn't want to party there anymore.
"I love how the club wanted to give the press another reason to why we didn't stay at their weak a** club so they wouldn't look bad for me walking in and right back out," the singer wrote.
He added, "Btw it wasn't the worst bday cuz all my friends from back home flew in I was just mad in the moment."
|Problems With Paparazzi|
Bieber's problems with the paparazzi are by no means new. Following his birthday fiasco, Reuters video captured the Biebs being restrained by his body guard as he shouted expletives at British photographers.
The video captured the Canadian singer, who had just been released from the hospital after fainting backstage during a show, exiting a vehicle and lunging at a photographer before being restrained. "What did you say? What did you say?" he shouted before swearing, as his body guards dragged him back in the vehicle.
Bieber sent out various tweets about the incident: "Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u…well I'm human. Rough week" and the "Only way someone can break u is if u let them."
|Bieber Loses His Monkey|
Bieber soon discovered that he was having more than just a rough week. At the end of March, during the German leg of his tour, his pet, Mally the Monkey, was seized by German customs officials after Bieber failed to produce the required vaccination and import papers.
She was then transferred to a Munich animal shelter. But when the singer missed the May 21 deadline to send her documents to German officials, she became a ward of the German state and, finally, late last month was sent to her permanent home at the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, in northern Germany.
|Bieber's Showdown With Keyshawn Johnson|
The Bieb's troubles have extended to his gated community in Calabasas, Calif., where he has riled neighbors who have accused him of speeding through the neighborhood in his white Ferrari.
In March, the singer allegedly got into an argument with a neighbor and spit on him, after the neighbor objected to the singer driving at high speeds in the neighborhood. Prosecutors are still reviewing the case.
Then, at the end of May, Keyshawn Johnson confronted Bieber for allegedly speeding through the neighborhood while the former NFL star's kids were playing outside.
"You got a 19-year old kid feeling entitled," Johnson told TMZ about why he later chased down the singer at his home to discuss the incident with him.
Police were ultimately called and now the district attorney's office is investigating Bieber for a second case of alleged reckless driving.
Afterward, Bieber's friend, rapper Tyler the Creator, claimed that he was the one driving the car. "Don't Blame Him," he tweeted. "People Are Evil Swearing That It Was Who It Wasn't."
"Look man, I know the difference between a black kid driving a car and a white kid driving a car," Johnson said.
|Selena and Justin Break Up -- Again|
To top off all his troubles, the teen sensation appears to be single again. His on-again, off-again relationship with former girlfriend Selena Gomez appears to be done.
Following their most recent breakup, Gomez was photographed singing karaoke with a bunch of her friends on June 4. Perhaps to prove he was weathering the breakup just as well, Bieber tweeted June 6, "studio, music, friends, sunshine. life is good."
