London, Jan 20 (ANI): Stacey Betts, who tried to sue Justin Bieber for the damage caused to her ears during one of his concerts, has dropped the lawsuit, it has been revealed.

The mom filed the lawsuit after she and her daughter had donned their Belieber t-shirts and gone to see the teen heartthrob in concert during the summer, saying that her ears had been damaged by the loud screaming of fellow fans, or - in her words - that she was "injured by a sound blast that exceeded safe decibel levels."

She also claimed to "suffer hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis in both ears" which had lead to "anxiety, loss of sleep, and depression," the Mirror reported

In the document obtained by TMZ.com, Betts went on to say that the popstar himself made things worse as he "created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena" when he travelled into the crowd in a "heart-shaped aluminum/steel gondola."

Having originally attempted to sue Bieber, his record label, the concert promoter and the arena for the sum of 9.23 million dollars in damages, Betts asked the court to dismiss the case last week because she doesn't have a lawyer and can't continue with the case on her own. (ANI)
