A brief history of lawsuits involving Justin Bieber
For most, turning 18 means being able to buy lottery ticket or vote. For Justin Bieber, it meant he became the target of a wealth of lawsuits ranging from the strange to the, um, very strange.
Take this latest case: TMZ has obtained a copy of a lawsuit filed in Michigan wherein a man claims that Bieber purchased a penis enlargement with a stolen credit card. And that’s not even the craziest part! He also impregnated the man’s “daughter” Selena Gomez on his “Canadian bear rug,” gave Gomez an STD, and used the man’s stolen American Express card to pay for an abortion.
In honor of this surprisingly detailed lawsuit, we’ve compiled a timeline of all the legal action involving Bieber.
October 31, 2011: Mariah Yeater heads everybody off at the pass by filing a lawsuit against Bieber four months before his 18th birthday. Her beef? That he fathered her son backstage at a concert. Happy Halloween!
February 27, 2012: RC3, a manufacturer of Android apps, sued Bieber preemptively, claiming the right to distribute the game Joustin’ Beaver despite the singer’s trademark claims.
March 27, 2012: Boys just want to have fun. And yet, Bieber was nearly sued for this Twitter prank, where he tweeted a phone number with the caption “Call me right now.” The number was missing the last digit, leaving Bieber’s 19 million followers to guess its identity. Needless to say, two Texas residents were not happy when they received thousands of calls from over-eager fans.
March 28, 2012: One day later, Bieber was the center of this $300,000 lawsuit in which Moonstone Management sued another company by the name of J-Mike for not managing to secure Bieber or Eminem to perform at a concert in Seoul, Korea after reportedly promising to do so.
July 11, 2012: An Oregon woman sued Bieber for hearing damage she purportedly received at a 2010 concert.
October 23, 2012: A Michigan man sues Bieber for a whole bunch of craziness. Penis enlargement? Really, So-called Father of Selena Gomez? Do you just have money to throw around? Lawsuits aren’t free.
How long is it before someone sues him for trauma incurred from this?
