According to TMZ on Thursday, July 12, 2012, which obtained a copy of the lawsuit, Stacey Wilson Betts of Oregon attended a Justin Bieber concert in Portland, Oregon on July 14, 2010, along with her daughter, and claimed that the music gets louder and louder that eventually caused her permanent hearing loss.
As noted in the lawsuit, which was filed last Wednesday, the mom of five said that the music was already loud and even got louder when the 18-year old ‘Boyfriend’ singer positioned himself in a “heart-shaped aluminum/steel gondola” and Beliebers (Justin Bieber‘s fans) screamed at the top of their voices.
“Mr. Bieber created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena. Then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion, whereas, I was struck with a sound blast.” Betts wrote on her lawsuit.
“Due to the negligence of Justin Bieber, Island Def Jam Records, Rose Quarter owned by Vulcan Sports and the promoter AEG World, I suffered a sound blast during a concert because a steel/aluminum gondola acted as a sound conductor.” Betts added, who demanded $9,230, 000 for all the damages.
As of this writing, Justin Bieber or his rep has not release any comment on the issue, but Beliebers reacted via Twitter and noted that it was the woman’s fault since all concerts provide loud music and screaming fans (particularly his) and that she should have used use earplugs to protect her ears.
