Bieber's Twitter revenge prompts phone bill. Justin Bieber's Twitter messages included a phone number of a Detroit teen. The teen received 26,000 text messages and phone calls from Justin Bieber's tweet.

Justin Bieber may look cute and innocent but he sure knows how to get revenge. Detroit teen, Kevin Kristopik, had to find this out the hard way. When the fifteen-year-old invaded Bieber's privacy, the singer tweeted Kristopik's phone number and the message read: "everyone call me 248-XXX-XXXX:) or text," to the pop idol's 4.5 million followers Saturday night.

"I kind of meddled into his life a little bit," Kevin Kristopik said in a statement. "He decided to take revenge on me." The tweet disappeared a few minutes later.

However, the damage was already done, the young boy received about 26,000 text messages from around the world, as well as nonstop calls, before he changed his number and deleted his Twitter account. According to the high school student, he tracked down Bieber's number through a friend of the singer's and had been annoying the star. "I understood that Bieber was trying to get his son to stop texting him, but still, there's the phone bill to consider," Mike Kristopik, the boy's father, said in a statement.
