Stacey Wilson Betts took her daughter to a Justin Bieber concert in Oregon expecting to see a good show.. What she ended up seeing as a great “ear splitting” show that allegedly caused permanent damage to her hearing.
According to the lawsuit the teen heartthrob worked his already super hyper fans “Beliebers” into a frenzy of screams. The lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Oregon, claims the singer “enticed the crowd” by waving his arms in an upward motion while riding over them in a heart-shaped gondola.
“The gondola that Justin Bieber was suspended in acted as a sound conductor, creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears,” Betts says, adding that Bieber and co-defendants Island Def Jam Records, promoter AEG Worldwide and venue owner, Vulcan Sports Entertainment displayed “negligence” by allegedly failing to “maintain safe decibels at all times during their events.”
Betts says her “quality of life” has been “permanently reduced in addition to the injury.” She is suing for $9.2 million for “expenses, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, severe tinnitus, hyperacusis and permanent disability and impairment” to both of her ears.”
In response to Betts’ lawsuit, swarms of Bieber fans have taken to the net to air their opinions on the matter.
While some expressed sympathy for Betts’ injury, the majority of “beliebers” pointed out the obvious — concerts are loud.
Don’t go to a Bieber concert and not expect it to be loud. It clearly didn’t affect the other thousands of ppl there. bit.ly/Nt1eKg
