Justin and Hailey Bieber are threatening legal action against a plastic surgeon who posted a video about the model on TikTok.
Attorneys sent a cease and desist letter to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Barrett accusing him of using the 23-year-old model’s “name, image and likeness” to “commercially advertise your plastic surgery practice and to spread false, uncorroborated claims that Mrs. Bieber has undergone plastic surgery.”
Barrett featured Hailey in a video and claimed that she’s had a skin tightening procedure, jawline contouring, chin augmentation, as well as filler in her cheeks and lips.
Justin also accused the doctor of using “copyrighted protected lyrics” from his song “Sorry.”
The couple is seeking a public statement from Barrett renounce the claims he made and remove any and all posts containing non-approved references to them.
Barrett claims that the purpose of his TikTok account is to educate viewers and “increase the transparency of plastic surgery.” He also said: “I was definitely shocked as I was simply sharing my opinion on what I thought she may have had done. I felt like I was being bullied. I do not make money off of the TikTok account and the ‘cease and desist’ was overreaching.”
Dr. Barrett noted that Hailey is not one of his patients, but he did some research and found photos of her that appeared to be unaltered. “I compared them side-by-side and gave my opinion as to what plastic surgery procedures I thought she had done,” he explained, adding that people tagged Hailey and she “posted a comment that she felt it was flattering that people thought that she had plastic surgery.”
