Justin Bieber Sued for $9 Million Over Belieber Mom’s Hearing Loss
Here’s a quick way to have your Belieber daughter disown you. An Oregon woman who took her offspring to a Justin Bieber concert on July 14, 2010 now claims that she has permanent ear damage stemming from the show and is suing the singer, his label, the concert promoter and the arena for a cool $9.23 million. That is enough to make the Biebs’ team shriek even louder than his fans.
According to TMZ, Stacey Wilson Betts claims that it was super loud inside the arena, due the hysterical and shrieking female fans that worship at the singer’s altar. And she was surprised by this? Come on! You don’t need a degree in astrophysics in order to figure out that young girls + a teen idol = a reaaallllyyyy loud show.
Betts says she was slapped by a “sound blast” after the singer climbed into a heart-shaped, steel contraption that was lowered into the crowd and ultimately acted like a sound conductor.
TMZ reports that Biebs “created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena. Then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion.” She says that the steel contraption aided in creating noise that damaged her hearing. She says she suffers from tinnitus, which is incessant ringing in the ears.
