Justin Bieber has publicly denied the accusations of sexual assault that a woman said happened during SXSW on March 9, 2014.
The woman, who goes by “Danielle,” detailed on Twitter (since deleted) how she allegedly met the pop star at an event and he brought her and her friends back to his room at the Four Seasons in Austin before taking her to another room to have sex. She said she said she felt uncomfortable and asked him to stop.
Now Bieber has denied these accusations and took to Twitter to clear up his name and even offer up some evidence as to why this whole story is factually impossible.
I don’t normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career but after talking with my wife and team I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight.
Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly. I wanted to speak out right away but out of respect to so many victims who deal with these issues daily I wanted to make sure I gathered the facts before I made any statement.
Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed. However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action.
In another set of tweets, another woman accused Bieber of sexual assault in New York City in 2015. Although Bieber issued a lengthy response to the SXSW accusation on Twitter, he did not address the second one.
