You can get a great glimpse into the minds of celebrities on the basis of how they react to any passing dispute and tabloid story.
For instance, Hailey Bieber is apparently unfazed by her husband’s tendency to talk very publicly about their frisky marital sex life. But when a stranger speculates that she was having plastic surgery? She is having none of it.
In May 2020, the 23-year-old model slammed an Instagram account that hinted that some work had been done. And now she wants to prosecute a Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon who proposed the same thing.
Hailey Bieber Threatened to Sue Cosmetic Surgeon Over Plastic Surgery Allegations
Hailey and Justin Bieber are preparing to seek legal action against a cosmetic surgeon over comments made in a TikTok video regarding the actress.
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Barrett‘s TikTok footage claims Hailey had undergone plastic surgery on her face.
He instructed followers to pay “special attention to the nose” and contrasted Hailey ‘s pictures from 2011 and 2016.
He also indicated that Hailey had skin-tightening operations, jaw contouring, genioplasty (repositioning or reshaping the chin), and filling of her cheeks and eyes.
“What do you think? Well, I’ll tell you what I think. I think it’s physically impossible without getting a little bit of help from someone like myself to go from this picture to that picture,” he says in the video after comparing photos of the model.
In a letter of cease-and-desist obtained by E! News, Biebers’s attorneys suspect Barrett of exploiting Hailey’s “name, image, and likeness” to “commercially advertise your plastic surgery practice and spread false, uncorroborated claims that Mrs. Bieber has undergone plastic surgery.”

Barrett is also suspected of using “copyrighted protected lyrics” to Justin’s track, Sorry, in his TikTok video.
According to the outlet, the cease-and-desist letter adds: “These flagrant and conscious infringements of our clients’ rights constitute a number of violations including, without limitation: misappropriation of name, likeness, image and persona for commercial purposes, misrepresentation, defamation, slander, false light, violation of rights of publicity, copyright infringement, trademark and service mark infringement, unfair competition, dilution, and interference with our clients’ contractual obligations to third parties.”
Justin and Hailey would like Barrett to issue a formal statement retracting his accusations against Hailey and deleting any tweets involving unwanted ties or materials belonging to the pair.
The letter further warns Barrett that he is liable to “statutory damages for each willful infringement.”
