Los Angeles - Justin Bieber is being sued over a phone prank.
hitmaker posted a telephone number to his 19 million followers on Twitter
with the last two digits missing and urged fans to call him "right now".ZDNet.com reports
that Bieber's Twitter account was hacked.
However, while they tried to get the correct number, two residents of Texas claim they were plagued with over 1000 calls, even though the tweet was quickly deleted.
A lawyer representing the pair - a man named Kent and a woman named Dilice - is demanding they get compensation for the problems caused by the prank.

Justin - who is currently dating Selena Gomez - is likely hoping the legal action will not cost him too much, as the Canadian star recently purchased a $6m luxury home in California.

He also reportedly plans to install a computer system which will control blinds, lights and other house gadgets.
