The alleged victim is Felipe Betancur who claims he worked for Rubio from August until just a few days ago … when Paulina allegedly FLIPPED OUT at a Miami airport. According to Felipe’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in Florida, Rubio missed her plane from Miami to Mexico last weekend … and put Felipe in charge of getting her on the next flight out.
Felipe claims there were no 1st Class seats remaining on the next flight … and when he told Paulina she would have to sit in coach, she got really pissed off … and took it out on him.
In his suit, Felipe claims Paulina 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.
Felipe claims he suffered serious injuries from her attack — including abrasions and contusions on his shins and arms. He also claims he suffered emotional damage.
Felipe says he quit his job as soon as they returned to Miami … and now wants Paulina to fork over more than $250k to make things right.
It’s not the first time Paulina has been accused of having a short temper — she was arrested last year after allegedly getting into a screaming match with police in Florida.
