The Weston mother who sued pop star Justin Bieber because he refused to show up for a private meet-and-greet session attended by her daughter is dead set on making him pay.
Late last year, mom Melissa Matthai and her daughter Gabriella were awarded $5,298.75 by a Broward County judge in a default judgment entered against the singer of Sorry.
And when they figured out the money was not likely to come easy, Matthai had attorney Scott Behren filed a motion to garnish Bieber’s royalties and wages from Universal Music, the company that publishes his work.
With no sign of life from that company, Behren this week served the Fontainebleau Miami Beach with a subpoena to seize financial records pertaining to Bieber’s appearance at the resort for a New Year’s Eve concert.
The price of tickets started at $500 per.
According to the paperwork, Behren wants the Fontainebleau records so he can figure out the bank account number where the resort’s check or money transfer was deposited. Once that’s done, he’ll file court papers to seize the money for his clients.
In January, Bieber was held in breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation, and found to have violated the state’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act at when he held two Fourth of July concerts at the Triple A last year in Miami.
