Los Angeles: Teen pop star Justin Bieber is being sued by one of his fan`s mother, who claims that the singer is the reason her hearing has been damaged.
Stacey Wilson Betts is claiming her hearing has been permanently damaged after she took her daughter to the `Baby` hitmaker`s concert on July 14, 2010.
The woman, who hails from Oregon, is suing Bieber, his label Island Def Jam Records, the concert promoter and the arena for a whopping USD 9.23million in damages, reported a website.
Betts claims in the lawsuit, "I was injured by a sound blast that exceeded safe decibel levels. I suffer hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis in both ears."
She cites 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 alleges that Bieber "created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena and then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion."
