Justin Bieber is filing a $20 million dollar lawsuit against two anonymous women who accused him of sexual assault on social media.
The two unknown women went by the handles @danielleglvn and @ItsnotKadi on Twitter. Bieber’s lawyers have claimed the sexual assault claims are “factually impossible, and disproven both by indisputable documentary evidence and the individuals’ own admissions.”

The complaint, filed on Thursday, claims the following: “Danielle claimed she was sexually assaulted at the Four Seasons Hotel on March 9, 2014, however, Bieber did not stay at that hotel in March 2014 and there are multiple witnesses and documentary evidence to dispute Danielle’s malicious lie.”
“Likewise factually impossible, are contradicted by her own prior written statements, are supported only by falsified or faked texts.”
“Danielle fabricated her sexual encounter with Bieber at the Four Seasons Hotel because it was publicly reported that Bieber had dinner at the Four Seasons Restaurant on March 10, 2014 and presumed that Bieber was at the hotel because of the public reports of him dining at the restaurant,” the filing continues. “However, even though Bieber went to the restaurant, he did NOT stay at the Four Seasons Hotel.”
According to the filing, Bieber and his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez both attended his last-minute, surprise performance at SXSW that night and were staying in an Airbnb. He was later photographed leaving the venue with Gomez, according to the filing, and they then went back to the rental property they were staying at “along with several friends.”
One of the exhibits backing Justin’s claim also shares “details and receipts of the Rental Property where Bieber and Gomez and friends stayed, and for the Westin Hotel stay the next night.”
Justin has also personally responded to the allegations claiming, “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.”
