We're all fans of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez!
So it hurts to hear that fan sites devoted to the popular pair are up to no good!
Artist Arena, which operates fan sites for The Biebs, Selena, and Demi Lovato, is being sued by the Justice Department for collecting the personal info of underage visitors.
Allegedly, the sites gathered the names, birthdays, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and more from over 100,000 children under the age of 13- WITHOUT their parents' permission!
If this is true, it's in direct violation of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act!
The lawsuit is seeking $16,000 per violation, which if we just do some quick math… Shoot, we don't have 16,000 fingers! It's a SHIZLOAD of money!
