Baltimore, MD – Stacey Wilson Betts of Wilsonville, Ore., took her daughter to see a Justin Bieber concert two years ago. Now she wants $9.2 million as compensation.
Betts filed a lawsuit against the tween pop idol for allegedly ruining her hearing.
According to the suit, filed this week in U.S. District Court in Portland, the damage occurred at a point in the show when Bieber flew over the crowd in a gondola, inducing a “frenzy of screams” to an unsafe level, the Associated Press reported.
Betts alleges she has permanent hearing loss. She is suing Bieber, his record label and the owner of the arena that hosted the show.
