Justin Bieber has been hit with a $9 million (Rs 50 crore) lawsuit after a woman claimed her hearing had been permanently damaged by screaming fans at a concert.

According to the suit, Stacey Wilson Betts had taken her daughter to see Bieber’s show in Portland, Oregon two years ago in July.

Betts claimed that Bieber “created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena. He then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion.”

She said that the gondola-effect acted as a “sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears.”

As a result, Betts claimed that she now suffered from tinnitus ... which causes a constant pulsing sound that makes it hard to sleep.
