Justin Bieber Hospitalized for Swollen Testicle
Justin Bieber’s got his eyes on his balls.
The “Sorry” singer checked into Long Island’s Northwell Health this May for what he believed to be testicular torsion, triggering a bizarre chain of events that led to the firing of a hospital employee. While the 23-year-old was ultimately diagnosed and treated for a swollen testicle, his hospitalization became the center for a wrongful termination lawsuit when the fired staffer was accused of improperly handling the Canadian crooner’s health documents.
Justin made an emergency run to Northwell Health in Long Island New York, and a staffer named Kelly Lombardo found out about it. The hospital claims Lombardo illegally accessed Justin’s medical file in one of the computers … this after hearing rumors Justin had been admitted for an STD.
According to the lawsuit, the hospital fired Lombardo for being “an immoral employee” who violated Bieber’s privacy rights.
Lombardo has just filed a wrongful termination lawsuit, claiming she never accessed Justin’s file and simply heard from others he was there for treatment of an STD.
