This is so not the week to be Justin Bieber.

Days after the singer was cited for excessive speeding and chased by the paparazzi, he's been hit with a lawsuit by a former concert goer named Stacey Wilson Betts - and you won't believe the reason why.

Betts is suing the adorable teen for $9.2 million because she attended a show in July 2010 and claims to have suffered severe tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hyperacusis (oversensitivity to sound) in both ears as a result.

Based on court documents obtained by E! News, Betts says she was injured due to "an unforeseen aspect of the show," specifically a sound blast that "exceeded safe decibel levels."

"[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," the lawsuit reads.

Betts concludes that her pain is a results of "the negligence of Justin Bieber."

She is also suing Island Def Jam Records, the arena in which the concert was held and the promoter.
