    Looks like the paparazzi aren't the only ones Justin Bieber has to worry about.

    Stacey Wilson Betts took her daughter to the Biebs' concert back in July 2010 is suing the "Baby" crooner for a whopping $9.2 million after she allegedly suffered hearing loss, severe tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hyperacusis (oversensitivity to sound) in both ears from the show.

    According to court documents filed Wednesday and obtained by E! News, Betts claimed that "due to an unforeseen aspect of the show," she was injured by a sound blast that "exceeded safe decibel levels."

    And just what was this unforeseen aspect?

    "[Bieber] climbed into a heart shaped, aluminum/steel gondola and was pulled out over the crowd," creating a "wave like effect of screaming" that "enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion," Betts said in the documents. 

    "Due to the negligence of Justin Bieber," as well as that of the promoters and sound engineers who are "responsible to maintain safe decibels at all times during their events," that steel gondola acted as "a sound conductor," creating a "sound blast" that permanently damaged both of Betts' ears, the complaint went on.

    But, Bieber isn't the only one the disgruntled mother is suing.

    Betts also included the pop star's label (Island Def Jam Records), the concert promoter and the arena in the suit for the "loss of quality of life and permanent disability and impairment to both of my ears." 

    Justin Bieber's rep has not yet responded to a request for comment.
