Justin Bieber is responding to the new sexual assault allegations against him in a MAJOR way.
As you’ll recall, on Saturday, two Twitter users identified as “Danielle” and “Kadi” shared accusations against the 26-year-old from alleged incidents in 2014 and 2015. He quickly hit back with his share of receipts and correspondence with his management team to back up his rebuttal, calling out the claims as “factually impossible.”
Now, he’s taking things one step further with a $20 million defamation lawsuit.
The suit, filed on Thursday, states:
“The malicious statements made by ‘Danielle’ and ‘Kadi’ (who may be the same person under two accounts) are absolutely false, and their respective heinous accusations that Bieber engaged in the alleged sexual assaults are outrageous, fabricated lies.”
On a since-deleted account, Danielle alleged she was sexually assaulted by Bieber on March 9, 2014, at an Austin, Texas hotel. The lawsuit states he did not have a room at the Four Seasons Hotel on that date, where she says the incident occurred. On the night in question, JB says he, then-girlfriend Selena Gomez, and a group of friends were staying at a rental property.
He might have to get Selena involved to back him up!
The following day, the Grammy Award winner says he stayed at a Westin Hotel for three more nights in the Lone Star State, but he “visited and had dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel Restaurant” on March 10.
The docs argue:
“Fans and media posted to social media documenting he was at the Four Seasons’ Restaurant on March 10, 2014, however, someone fabricating a story about Bieber’s time in Austin would not have been aware that he and his friends were not actually staying at the hotel, and had only visited the restaurant at the property for dinner.”
Though Justin did not initially address the claims made against him by Kadi, who alleged that she was assaulted by the Sorry singer at the Langham Hotel in New York City on May 5, 2015, he is continuing to maintain his innocence:
“On May 4, 2015, Bieber attended the Met Gala in New York, and then immediately after went to and attended a celebrity hosted private after-party at Up & Down, attended by dozens of other celebrities and witnesses, at which Bieber was photographed in the early hours of May 5, 2015. Bieber did not leave the celebrity after-party until close to 4 AM, when he then stopped at a hot-dog stand, along with others, for a snack. Bieber was photographed going to the after-party and then, at 4 AM, when he stopped at the hot-dog stand.”
The suit continues:
“Kadi claims that she was invited-up and joined Bieber and a group of people hanging-out in his hotel room at 2:30 AM, which was the same time Bieber was actually at the Met Gala after-party with dozens of witnesses.”
Danielle and Kadi have yet to respond to the lawsuit, which is seeking $10 million from each woman in compensatory damages in a jury trial.
