Two women are accusing Justin Bieber of sexual assault at a hotel in 2014. The singer says it never happened – and he’s taking legal action.
Bieber has responded to the allegations on Twitter, bringing screenshots of his Airbnb receipts. On June 20th, a woman calling herself Danielle posted a Twitter thread alleging that the sexual assault happened in Austin, Texas, in 2014.
“My friends and I were enjoying ourselves the entire night,” Danielle writes. “A man approached me and my friends and asked us if we wanted to meet Justin. Of course, we said yes.” Danielle writes that Bieber invited her and her friends to his hotel room at the Four Seasons.
She says Bieber “made me agree not to say anything to anyone.” She says she and Bieber made out consensually, but that he pushed further than she was comfortable with. “My body felt unconscious,” she wrote. “I don’t want to go into detail about what happened next.” She writes she was 21 at the time.
Justin Bieber and his representatives have denied the sexual assault allegations.
Bieber says he was not staying at the Four Seasons but split his time between Airbnb and the Westin hotel. Bieber has since tweeted receipts from his stays at the Airbnb and Westin hotels.
A second woman also came forward, saying Bieber trapped her in a bathroom at a New York meet and greet in 2015.
“I asked him to stop and continued to say that I cannot have sex with anyone prior to marriage,” she wrote. While Bieber has actively refuted the allegation from Danielle and the sexual assault alleged to have taken place in Texas, he has not commented about the second assault.
However, on June 21st, Bieber tweeted: “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.”
