Sam Worthington and Lara Bingle have been slapped with a lawsuit of more than $5.2 million in damages after a street attack.

According to sources, Sheng Li, a New York based paprazzo, has alleged that he was viciously assaulted by the 39-year-old actor and his model wife in Manhattan on February 23 last year, reports news.com.au.

The Avatar actor allegedly punched Li in the face after accusing him of kicking his wife in the shins.

A jury trial for the civil case is set to begin in New York on September 8, but the duo has rejected the photographer's claims entirely.
