Justin Bieber threatened with legal action over Twitter
Justin Bieber’s sweet baby face is turning quite red over the Twitter Tweet that went terribly wrong.
It seems ‘The Bieb’ tweeted out a random phone number to his 19 million followers earlier this month with the caption "Call me right now," but left off a final digit. The tweet had droves of teenage fans trying to guess the missing number, leading to more than 1,000 phone calls to an older woman named Dilcie and a man named Kent. The two Texas residents are so riled they are seeking compensation.
A lawyer is representing the two, who claim to have received more than 1,000 calls. They want compensation for the hassle they've had to go through including expenses, a public apology from the teen star, concert tickets for Dilcie’s grandkids and public backing for a new online business for Kent and money for out of town expenses related to the phone bills. A lesson learned for ‘The Bieb’ who has since deleted the playful Tweet.
This story comes on the heels of the new release by Justin Bieber, “Boyfriend”, and a new, mature sound, which was co-written and co-produced by Mike Posner.
"This record is different in a very good way," said producer/writer Mason Levy, who also worked on the song. "Definitely edgier, it's more grown-up, it's more developed and it's sexier. It's just like really dope. It's gonna definitely surprise people. People aren't really expecting that. They're going to like it."
It's clear from the teaser that Bieber is using influences from urban music and that he's looking to grow up sonically. The music in the new clip also seems to pay homage to Justin Timberlake, and even Chris Brown. Bieber has confirmed that he raps on the song.
So is this just another case of the old adage that any press is good press? Stay tuned.
