The 'One Time' singer is said to have "enticed the crowd into a frenzy" in the suit which has been filed.
Justin Bieber is being sued for $9 million in damages after a woman in the US claimed one of the Canadian's shows caused permanent damage to her ears.
Stacey Wilson Betts, from Oregon, has filled the bog money suit against the 'Somebody To Love' star, concert promoter, his Island Def Jam Records label and the arena itself.
The 'Baby' star's show at the Rose Garden Arena on 14th July 2010 has apparently caused the woman in question to suffer hear loss and tinnitus.
"I was injured by a sound blast that exceeded safe decibel levels," she claims according to TMZ. "I suffer hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis in both ears."
Betts reported that the initial screaming was bad enough, but the singer caused further frenzy when he jumped inside a heart-shaped aluminum gondola during the show.
The woman also reports that the singer "created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena," and "then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion."

Speaking of the gondola, she continued: "The gondola that Justin Bieber was suspended in acted as a sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears."
After taking her daughter to the show, Betts stated that her tinnitus creates a "whooshing, pulsating sound" and she now suffers from lack of sleep and depression.

Meanwhile, the singer is set to embark on his new 'Believe' world tour which will kick off in September.
