Justin Bieber

Texans Threaten Legal Action

Over Phone # Prank

Justin Bieber
is a reckless, no good prankster -- this according to 2 people in Texas, who are now threatening legal action against the pop star ... claiming Bieber coaxed millions of people into harassing them over the phone.

In case you're not one of Bieber's nearly 19 MILLION followers -- the singer randomly Tweeted a phone number earlier this month with the caption, "Call me right now." But the number was missing the final digit ... leading hordes of teen girls to guess what it might be. The tweet was later deleted, but the damage was done.

As a result, two people in Texas -- an older woman named Dilcie and a man named Kent -- claim their phones have been ringing off the hook non-stop ... and now, they've lawyered up to force Bieber to pay for his actions.

The lawyer tells TMZ, her clients’ patience “wears thin” after receiving over 1,000 phone calls at all hours of the day -- and they want compensation for all the problems Justin caused with his “reckless” behavior.  
 
Suggestions from the legal team include: concert tickets for Ms. Fleming’s grandchildren, a Bieber apology, an endorsement for Kent’s upcoming online project ... and lastly ... money for any out of pocket expenses.

According to the lawyer, Justin better play ball ... or else.

Remember when Bieber was on CSI and Marg Helgenberger said he was a brat? She got slammed for saying that. Seems she was right. I don't think a 1000 calls a day at all hours of the day and night is no big deal. I wouldn't want to have to deal with that. Would you?

Bieb's just goes to show that a child is a child is a child. I can't believe this child is what Selena Gomez is in love with. Time to put childish things away Beib's
and grow up.

Wow, this is stupid. These people just want money. Surely it can't be impossible to change a phone number or unplug a phone for a few days.

Oh please, these people are just using it to their advantage.. "Concert tickets for her grandchildren"... If they hated it that much, why didn't they just change their number? and unhook their phone while they're at it. It's not THAT big of a deal. It would have been solved in less than a day.

what does this really say about the mental status of obsessed fans... it's quite sad that thousands of people a day were somehow actually convinced that not only was he posting a real phone number, but that he would actually allow the crazies to be able to reach him

It shouldn't be up to the people to change their phone number just because this little boy did something stupid! This little boy needs to grow up! I'd be pissed too if someone did that to me. Also all his "followers" shouldn't be so stupid to think he would acutally put his REAL number out there for everyone! I hope these people do sue him and he has to pay a high price,not just "pocket change" for what he did!
