The plaintiff, Oregon resident Stacey Wilson Betts, claims the incident occurred at the "Boyfriend" singer's show in Portland, Ore. in July of 2010. In court documents obtained by TMZ, Betts says her hearing was permanently damaged when Bieber climbed into a heart-shaped gondola and traveled over the crowd.
According to Betts, 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."
She continues, saying the gondola acted like a "sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears."
Betts is not only suing Bieber, she's also named the singer's label, the concert promoter and the arena in the suit, claiming they are responsible for providing safe sound levels. The Oregan woman claims she now suffers from ringing in the ears, or tinnitus, which makes her hear a constant pulsing, whooshing sound.
