Bieber Ear Lawsuit

To teenyboppers and fans All Around The World, Justin Bieber’s voice may sound as sweet as a symphony…but to one Belieber’s mom, his voice is anything but!

Tomorrow will mark two years ago that Stacey Wilson Betts brought her daughter to a Bieber concert in Portland Oregon — one which she’s saying left her with Bieber Fever PERMANENT ear damage!

The woman claims that during one part of the show, the Biebs pointed at various parts of the audience, which she claims “enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion.”

Since Justin was seated upon a "heart-shaped aluminum/steel gondola" at this point, Betts believes it acted as a sound conductor, and, due to a “sound blast,” ended up damaging her hearing in both ears!

The condition the woman now suffers from as a result from the Belieber screams is called tinnitus — an ailment where she hears a pulsing sound constantly, causing her to lose sleep!!

Betts has now filed a lawsuit against Justin, his record label, the concert promoter AND the arena, suing them for $9.23 MILLION in damages.

No word yet from the Biebs’ camp…but let this be a lesson to all Beliebing moms and dads — bring earplugs!

    why go to a concert with lots of screaming girls and a huge amount of noise den! its just plain stupid. so it wasnt his fault she should blame herself really, and try sueing yourself!



  12. 12

    9.23 million dollars? Over tinnitus? Is she for real? Also tinnitus results from prolonged noise exposure not a once off thing, she might have been exposed to loud noises for years before this happens. I'm no Bieber fan but this woman is a joke!

    Read this yesterday on another site, she should have brought earplugs, or gone to a Jimmy Buffett - he is is a great entertainer.

    If Justin Beiber was my son, id be so furious at how the poparatzzi are treating this kid. Attacking young boys now eh? yes, im Canadian, 47 years old with 3 sons and Aboriginal.
    Pick on someone our own age. Sometimes I think the guys picking on this kid are just jealous because all the young girls like him.

    I'd like to sue The Bieb & Usher too for forcing my ears to listen to his crap ass music. He makes my ears bleed, he sings 3 notes only like a girl & he is an asshole to boot. Isn't his 15 minutes up yet??

    Re: Sherry – So you're saying permanent tinnitus and hearing loss should be accepted as normal consequences of going to a concert ? When did that happen ? See, that's exactly the problem, this kind of thing has become so commonplace that people somehow think it's normal for a concert to be that loud. No it's not ! A concert is something you go to to listen to live music, not to damage your ears. Most people who go unprotected don't do that to take a risk but because their common sense tells them that music is better enjoyed without your ears being, you know, blocked by earplugs. Now I agree it's not the artist's fault so much as the venue's organizers' but unless you sue some big name, people are never going to communicate enough on this issue.
