We've heard of Justin Bieber haters claiming the singer makes them deaf, but one woman is actually suing him for it.
The 18-year-old pop star has been slapped with a $9.23 million lawsuit in which an Oregon mom claims one of Bieber's "My World Tour" concerts damaged her hearing in 2010, TMZ reports.
Stacey Wilson Betts, who took her daughter to see the Bieb's show in Portland on July 14, 2010, claims the "Boyfriend" singer enticed his already wild fans to get ear-blastingly loud when he produced "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."
Bieber had moved into the crowd via a "heart-shaped aluminum/steel gondola," which the woman says served as a "sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears."
Betts, who reportedly now suffers tinnitus and other hearing damage, is suing the Ontario native, his record label, Island Records, the concert promoter, and Rose Garden Arena.
But if anyone can pay up, it's Selena Gomez's main man. Bieber just became the only guy to break the top five in Forbes' list of highest-paid celebrities under 30. With his haul of $55 million, a $9 million lawsuit probably wouldn't cause permanent damage.
The lawsuit comes eight months after Mariah Yeater hit Bieber with a paternity suit, which she eventually dropped.
