Have You Sued Justin Bieber Today? New Lawsuit Added to His List of Legal Troubles
For an 18-year-old, Justin Bieber has gotten into a lot of criminal and legal kerfuffles in the last few months. It seems like ever since he reached legal adulthood (on March 1), he’s been flirting with legal limits for speed, private information posted on Twitter, and, most recently, noise levels at his concerts.
Stacy Wilson Betts is suing Justin and his handlers for “loss of quality of life and permanent disability and impairment to both of my ears," as E! first reported.
You see, Stacy took her daughter to a Biebs concert in July 2010, and she claims that one of Bieber’s stunts caused so many young girls to scream that she “suffered hearing loss, severe tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hyperacusis (oversensitivity to sound) … from the show.”
According to court documents obtained by E!, Stacy argues that “[Justin] climbed into a heart shaped, aluminum/steel gondola and was pulled out over the crowd," creating a "wave like effect of screaming" that "enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion.”
As most Bieber babes know, this is not Justin’s first brush with the law this year. To sum up a few of his recent battles, consider the following list.
- In November 2011, Justin was served with a paternity suit after Mariah Yeater claimed he was the father of her 3-year-old son. Her claims were later deemed false. - After tweeting random phone numbers to his fans on March 27, asking them to “call me now,” two Texas residents hired lawyers in order to sue the Biebs for the unwanted harassment. - An altercation with a paparazzo led to a police investigation on whether or not Justin was guilty of assault and criminal battery on May 27. - On July 6, Justin was pulled over for “driving at insane speeds” in Los Angeles, reportedly over 80 miles per hour.
