Justin Bieber’s Phone Tweet May Land The Teen In Civil Court

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Justin Bieber’s phone prank may end up in court.

For those who aren’t part of his 18 million-strong Twitter followers, a Bieber tweet sent legions of fans to a couple of Dallas phone numbers earlier this month.

Fans are still calling. The residents have consulted with a lawyer and now want compensation.

The callers are excited young girls, residents say.

In one voicemail message, a girl said, “Justin. I know you’re there! Call me. I love you so much! I’m sorry I called so late. But, I just got your number. I love you. I love you. I love you so much. Please call me back!”

Bieber sent out the original tweet late Wednesday night on March 7.

He tweeted, “Call me right now.”

He left a Dallas phone number, but the last digit was a question mark. Persistent fans found at least two numbers that rang through.

Twenty days later, fans are still leaving messages like, “Justin. I love you. Justin Be-Be-Be-Bieber. Love you!”

Kent, who doesn’t want to use his last name, says he still gets calls at all hours.

“Recently, I’m even getting calls from India. They want Justin Bieber to come to India,” he said.

His Dallas attorney, Emily Horton, is frustrated.

“It’s been difficult getting substantive response from the Bieber camp. We’re a little puzzled as to why,” she said.

Horton hasn’t ruled out a lawsuit.

Dilcie Fleming is the other Dallas resident still receiving calls. Though, hers have slowed thanks to the greeting she immediately recorded on her phone.

“This is NOT Justin Bieber’s phone number. Please do NOT call again,” it says.

Fleming says she doesn’t want to sue Bieber. She just wants a letter of apology and concert tickets for her great granddaughter.

“I’ve got a great granddaughter that either five or six that … she’s in love with him,” Fleming said with a chuckle.

Kent wants to harness the power of the Bieber tweet and have the pop singer tweet support for his start-up online media portal later this year.

He thinks it would be fair compensation for all the time and trouble he’s put into to answering fan calls.

“It is costing me money. I’m paying for a Justin Bieber fan line,” he said.

Emily Horton, Kent’s attorney, wants the Bieber camp to acknowledge the incident, help them slow the flow of calls and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    Question, if some of the voice mail messages contain R/X rated content could the owner of the answering machine be accused of child porn?

    Not sure why he gave out a Dallas number and the rabid fans would not know something is up when he is from Canada… If you were a true “fan” then you may have guessed that he was lying. ‘Stupid Girls’ by Pink would be a better song for them to worship.
