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.

Now you listen Justin - An attorney will want to take the case from you for money OF COURSE. But the number you posted online was not complete. It did not suggest that you were leaving out one number. It was a typo. Any people who read a typo twitter number and made calls that were to some other telephone number are responsible to notify you that the number you posted was in error. If they did not notify you that the number you posted was incorrect then any calls they made to telephone numbers that they created may be deemed reckless. But you are NOT RESPONSIBLE for those calls Not to anyone. And this is the law. Because you are famous everyone tries to use you for money. IF YOU WERE WITH YOUR RIGHTFUL MOTHER THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU.

I'd sue that little b!+ch so vengefully if that ever happened to me. It'd teach him a very valuable lesson. Don't F with people, know who you're dealing with and don't dish it out if you can't take it. Just cause you're bored don't prank random people. Those girls are extremely f*cking dumb if they really thought that by chance that it be Justin's number. Dumb litte b!+ches. He played his fans for fools and they didn't even realize it.

Not everything in life is actionable so these fools need to drop their cases, they think they will get a few bucks from JB just to make the case go away...

Really shows the kinds of fans he has...irresponsible and immature. If your seriously going to believe he'll hand his number out that easily your as dumb as a door knob..as for his actions, he needs a wake up call. You can't post up a false number with the intention of harrassing individuals...espically when you have millions of followers...

He didn't even give out their number, they just happened to guess the last digit. So, you can't really sue over that, can you?

I agree they should have sued. My husband works nights and it would have bothered him! But I am also smart enough to take phone off hook till it died down. LOL Boy, I could really see it if it was a buisness number! LOL

How the hell does Justin expect everybody to treat him like an adult when he pulls this crap? I think the problem with him is that he never hears the word "no." He's living with a lot of privilege, so he's now starting to believe the rules don't apply to him. What he needs is a good swift kick in the ass!
