Justin Bieber Wins $9M Lawsuit Against Gypsy Fan Who Sued For Ear Damage
Entertainment

Justin Bieber has just won a lawsuit in which a woman claimed her ear drums broke due to the screaming at his concert!

According to TMZ...Stacey Betts  –who filed the lawsuit last summer– filed documents this past week asking that the court dismiss her case!

 

Betts, who doesn’t have a lawyer, says she still believes in the merits of her case however it has now been dismissed.

Stacey claimed her hearing had been permanently damaged after she took her daughter to the teen idol’s concert on July 14, 2010.

The woman, who hails from Oregon, attempted to sue Bieber, his label Island Def Jam Records, the concert promoter and the arena for a whopping $9.23million in damages.

Betts claimed in the lawsuit, published by TMZ at the time: ‘I was injured by a sound blast that exceeded safe decibel levels. I suffer hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis in both ears.’

Betts cited that while the initial screaming in the arena was bad enough, Bieber made it much worse when he was pulled into the crowd in a ‘heart-shaped aluminum/steel gondola’ as part of the show.

Her lawsuit alleged that Bieber ‘created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena.’

He ‘then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion.’

She also claimed: ‘The gondola that Justin Bieber was suspended in acted as a sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears.’

At the time Betts stated that the tinnitus creates a ‘loud high pitched, whooshing, pulsating sound’ and claims that this results in ‘anxiety, loss of sleep, and depression.’

The singer, who is reportedly no longer with Selena Gomez, is currently being sued by a former bodyguard, Moshe Benabou, who claims the pop star beat him up.

Benabou’s lawsuit claims Bieber berated him and repeatedly punched him in the chest after a disagreement about how to handle a member of the Grammy-nominated singer’s entourage. After he walked away, Bieber fired him, Benabou’s lawsuit claims.

In October 2012 Los Angeles prosecutors declined to file charges against Bieber after finding insufficient evidence that he punched and kicked a photographer outside a movie theatre near his home in Calabasas, Calif., a month earlier.
