FOX 6 reports: A Milwaukee college student says that's been her life since apparently, her number was tweeted out and linked to... Justin Bieber. Yes, Justin Bieber.

For the last 24 hours, Jackie Ratelle's phone has been ringing off the hook.

"I got another one this morning from Texas as I was just getting ready for school," said Ratelle.

It's been ringing so much, she says it doesn't feel real anymore.

Why the craziness? It turns out, Ratelle's phone number was tweeted out Monday night. But it wasn't her name attached to the tweet, it was Bieber's.

""A little bit beyond me, I didn't expect it. I was a little more confused that it was Canada and Colombia," said Ratelle.

The calls and texts started pouring in to the art student's cracked iPhone. They came in from everywhere -- domestic and abroad -- 400 in less than a half day -- and they're driving her phone bill up.

Now Ratelle is trying to determine whether she needs a new phone line.
