Daily Chisme: Paulina Rubio Sued for Allegedly Punching Former Assistant

Happy Friday, chisme lovers! Find out what we are buzzing about below:

- Paulina Rubio is fighting back on this one! La Chica Dorada has been slammed with a $250,000 assault and battery lawsuit for allegedly hitting her former assistant, Felipe Restrapo Betancur. In the court papers filed, Felipe claims that the Mexican pop star "struck the plaintiff with her fists, and verbally abused plaintiff calling him names” after he failed to book a first class seat for her flight from Miami to Mexico. We didn’t know coach was that bad…

According to TMZPau’s lawyer has released a statement claiming that the allegations are false. And according to her legal team, “The moment after being fired and eventually recovering from his inebriation, Mr. Restrepo ran to an attorney who was representing another individual in a meritless lawsuit previously filed against Ms. Rubio's company Link Tours, Inc."

Pau's team has filed a counterclaim against Felipe for allegedly violating his confidentiality agreement.

The “Brava” singer has had her own troubles with the law in the past, so we wonder what the judge will say on this one…
