Unfair dismissal claim filed after health facility treats Justin Bieber’s bashed balls

Justin Bieber’s aching balls are back in court. Actually, I’m not sure Bieber’s balls have ever been in court before. And they’re not really in court this time either. Though his testicles are involved in a new legal claim for unfair dismissal that has been filed in New York.

This all relates to an incident back in May when Bieber made an emergency visit to a facility run by Northwell Health in Long Island after he injured his testicles playing football (proper football mind, none of that American football nonsense). It all turned out fine though, for Bieber at least, whose balls are all good.

However, it didn’t turn out so fine for an employee at the Northwell Health facility called Kelly Lombardo, who was fired for allegedly accessing the pop star’s medical files. She wasn’t providing any treatment to Bieber, but was accused of sneaking at look at his medical documents in order to see whether there was any truth in a rumour that the pop boy had actually be in the building to be tested for a sexually transmitted disease.

Lombardo denies the allegations saying that, while she was aware of the STD rumour, she didn’t believe that that was why Bieber visited Northwell Health, and either way she didn’t attempt to access his files. Lombardo then says that when she told her bosses all of this, they implied to her that, because she was a “young female”, she must have been curious as to why the pop star had visited her place of work.

The sacked employee has now filed a wrongful-termination claim with the New York Division Of Human Rights. Meanwhile her legal rep, David H Rosenberg,¬†told the New York Post: “My client never accessed Mr Bieber’s medical file. She was falsely accused of doing so on account of her gender”.
