Justin Bieber has won a legal battle in which Stacey Betts claimed her ear drums broke due to the screaming at his concert.
According to TMZ, Stacey Betts who initially filed the lawsuit last summer filed documents last week asking the court to dismiss her case.
Stacey Betts, who doesn’t have a lawyer, says she still believes in the merits of her case however it has now been dismissed.
The woman claimed her hearing had been permanently damaged after she took her daughter to Justin Bieber’s concert on July 14, 2010.
Stacey Betts, who hails from Oregon, attempted to sue Justin Bieber, his label Island Def Jam Records, the concert promoter and the arena for a whopping $9.23 million in damages.
She claimed in the lawsuit, published by TMZ at the time: “I was injured by a sound blast that exceeded safe decibel levels. I suffer hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis in both ears.”
Stacey Betts cited that while the initial screaming in the arena was bad enough, Justin 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 alleged that Justin Bieber “created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena”.
Justin Bieber “then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion”.
Stacey Betts also claimed: “The gondola that Justin Bieber was suspended in acted as a sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears.”
At the time Stacey Betts stated that the tinnitus creates a “loud high pitched, whooshing, pulsating sound” and claims that this results in “anxiety, loss of sleep, and depression”.
Justin Bieber is currently being sued by a former bodyguard, Moshe Benabou, who claims the pop star beat him up.
Moshe Benabou’s lawsuit claims Justin Bieber berated him and repeatedly punched him in the chest after a disagreement about how to handle a member of the Grammy-nominated singer’s entourage. After he walked away, Justin Bieber fired him, Moshe Benabou’s lawsuit claims.
