26th June: Justin Bieber is reportedly suing the women who accused him of sexual assault.
According to reports, Justin Bieber has taken his stance and is suing the two women who recently accused him of sexual assault for $10 million each.
As per the court documents obtained by ET, the 26-year-old singer states that the claims made by social media users known as Danielle and Kadi are “factually impossible” and disputes the claims with documentary evidence and multiple witnesses.
The court papers state, “Bieber will not stand idly by while defendants attempt to get attention and fame for themselves, by recklessly spreading malicious lies that he engaged in egregious criminal conduct by assaulting Defendants, and Bieber is, therefore, bringing this defamation/libel action to clear his name and set the record straight.”
On Saturday, a woman named Danielle came forward with the allegation of sexual assault by the ‘Sorry’ singer Bieber on her Twitter handle.
Danielle claimed Bieber sexually assaulted her in a Four Seasons Hotel room in Austin, Texas, on March 9, 2014, after a music event, and Kadi another girl on Twitter alleged that Bieber sexually assaulted her at the Langham Hotel in New York City on May 5, 2015.
On Sunday, Bieber denied the allegations against him in a series of tweets in which he argued with evidence and debunk the allegations against him.
“In the past 24 hours a new Twitter appeared that told a story of myself involved with sexual abuse on March 9, 2014, in Austin Texas at the Four seasons hotel,” Bieber tweeted. “I want to be clear. There is no truth to this story. In fact, as I will soon show I was never present at that location.”
Bieber, while using the same evidence in his lawsuit, stated that he did a surprise performance at SXSW on the night in question with then-girlfriend Selena Gomez. According to his tweets, he added that he never stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel, rather he was his GF at an Airbnb residence.
According to Bieber, Kadi made up the allegations because she knew that he had attended the Met Gala and that the two Twitter accounts are being handled by the same person.
Bieber recently retweeted a tweet from the Hollywood actor, Cole M. Sprouse who stated that the allegations do tremendous damage and that the matter should be taken seriously.
False accusations do tremendous damage to victims of actual assault. Furthermore, I would never seek to silence anybody. I encourage that people look into the accusations themselves, as the events detailed were factually untrue. 2

Meanwhile, following Bieber’s public response, a source close to the situation told ET they believe both accusations are untrue.
According to the source, with regard to the alleged 2014 incident, Bieber performed at SXSW on the night in question with Gomez in attendance. The source claims that they were staying in an Airbnb with their entourage and that Bieber never checked into the Four Seasons and was never there, as he was with Gomez.
In regard to the alleged 2015 incident, the source claims Bieber attended the Met Gala and immediately flew back to Los Angeles with Hailey Baldwin, and he did not stay in NYC.
