It seems Bieber Fever can cause serious damage.

Concertgoer Stacey Wilson Betts is suing Justin Bieber for a whopping $9.23 million, alleging her hearing was permanently damaged after she attended a Biebs show with her daughter back in July 2010.

The mom claims that the teen idol created a "sound blast" when he hovered over the cheering crowd in a floating heart-shaped steel gondola and "created a wave like effect of screaming." Betts maintains that she suffered hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hyperacusis (oversensitivity to sound) as a result of the concert.

But disgruntled Betts is not just blaming Bieber.

According to the court documents filed Wednesday, the plaintiff insists that the show's promoters, sound engineers and Island Def Jam Records — the 18-year-old pop star's label — are "responsible to maintain safe decibels at all times during their events."

Therefore, they too should therefore be liable for the "loss of quality of life and permanent disability and impairment in both of my ears," the case claims.

Bieber's camp has yet to issue a statement regarding the lawsuit.

This isn't the "Boyfriend" singer's only legal issue. A paparazzo alleges The Biebs roughed him up in a Calabasas, California, parking lot in May. The case has since been passed on to the L.A. District Attorney's Office, which will decide whether Bieber should be charged with a crime.

And just last weekend, Selena Gomez's beau was pulled over and cited for speeding down a Los Angeles freeway while being chased by photographers.

Why does Bieber have so many run-ins with the law? Weigh in below!
