Hailey and Justin Bieber are threatening to take legal action against plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Barrett after he suggested the 23-year-old model has been under the knife, according to TMZ.

The Beverly Hills-based surgeon was given a cease and desist notice for a TikTok post, in which he claimed changes in Hailey’s face – particularly her nose – couldn’t have happened naturally.

The Biebers’ legal team say that Dr. Barrett is in the wrong for using the blonde’s ‘name, image, and likeness’ to promote his brand by ‘spread[ing] false, uncorroborated claims that Mrs. Bieber has undergone plastic surgery.’

They are also accusing Dr. Barrett of copyright infringement for using lyrics to Bieber’s 2015 track Sorry in his caption.

In the video, which was a part of his Plastic Surgery Secrets series, the doctor breaks down the evolution of Hailey’s face, comparing a 2011 photo to a more recent 2016 shot.

He tells viewers to ‘pay special attention to the nose,’ before going on to claim it would be ‘physically impossible’ for puberty or anything else to have changed her features that drastically.

Dr. Barrett also suggests Bieber has undergone genioplasty – AKA chin augmentation – and has lip fillers, in addition to having had a few other minor procedures.

The Biebers say his claims amount to ‘misrepresentation, defamation, slander, false light, violation of rights of publicity, copyright infringement, trademark and service mark infringement.’

They have asked Dr. Barrett to take down the video and issue a public retraction in the next 24 hours.

If neither happen, the Biebers are threatening more serious legal action.

Dr. Barrett disputed the celebrity couple’s characterization of his video, telling TMZ there is nothing disparaging about the piece, which he said was primarily intended to educate people about plastic surgery.

He went on to say how he thinks it’s ‘crazy’ that the Biebers would take action over this, explaining he has ‘no plans’ to remove the video and is fine dealing with the legal ramifications.

DailyMail.com has reached out to both the Biebers and Dr. Barrett’s camps for comment.

Defending herself: Just days before Barrett’s video Bieber clapped back at an Instagram account doing the same sort of comparison

Hailey has previously denied claims she’s undergone plastic surgery.

Just days before Barrett’s video she commented on a since-deleted Instagram also comparing her younger face to now.

She claimed that most of the differences could be chocked up to photoediting.

‘Stop using pics that are edited by makeup artists!’ Bieber wrote. ‘This photo on the right is NOT what I look like…’

Continuing to explain, she said: ‘I’ve never touched my face, so if you’re gonna sit around and compare me at 13 and then me at 23, at least use a natural photo that wasn’t edited so crazy.’
