Justin Bieber Responds to Sexual Assault Allegations

“This story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with Twitter and authorities to take legal action.”

This weekend, a woman under the name “Danielle” posted a statement detailing an encounter with Justin Bieber from 2015, accusing the singer of sexually assaulting her at the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston. Now, Bieber has taken to Twitter to issue a series of responses, detailing his whereabouts on the night, claiming that the 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,” Bieber tweeted, adding, “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.” The singer then proceeded to publish emails and receipts from the hotel and AirBnB that he stayed at, explaining that he was with his then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. “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,” Bieber concluded the response with, and has not commented any further on the matter.

“Danielle” has since deleted her account following Bieber’s response, and has not issued a response thus far. Read Justin Bieber’s full response here.
