Justin Bieber law suit dropped by woman who claimed his concert damaged her ears
The gig-goer was looking to get $9 million in damages after claiming her hearing was ruined. Mum Stacey Betts filed the lawsuit after she and her daughter had donned their Belieber t-shirts and gone to see the teen heartthrob in concert during the summer, saying that her ears had been damaged by the loud screaming of fellow fans, or - in her words - that she was 'injured by a sound blast that exceeded safe decibel levels.'
She also claimed to "suffer hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis in both ears" which had lead to "anxiety, loss of sleep, and depression." lolllllll...see talk, who send you go the concert...mtshweeee....
In the document obtained by TMZ, Biebs' former fan went on to say that Justin himself made things worse as he "created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena" when he travelled into the crowd in a "heart-shaped aluminum/steel gondola."
Justin then apparently "enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion."
She added: "The gondola that Justin Bieber was suspended in acted as a sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears."
Having originally attempted to sue Justin, his record label, the concert promoter AND the arena for the little sum of $9.23 million in damages, Betts asked the court to dismiss the case last week because she doesn't have a lawyer and can't continue with the case on her own.
However, she says that she still beliebes - sorry, believes - in her case. She just probably won't be listening to another Bieber song in a while.
