A woman had taken to Twitter under an anonymous handle and had allegedly accused Justin Bieber of sexual assault in 2014. The women claimed that the assault took place at a hotel in Austin, Texas on March 9th, 2014. Addressing the rumours, Justin took to his Twitter handle and said, "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."
The Canadian singer said that he never addressed the rumours before but sexual assault is something not to be taken lightly. "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."
Justin Bieber said that he was never present at the alleged location.
He further revealed that he was in fact out for a show with his then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
He provided various proof of the same, articles, pictures and tweets corroborating his stance as facts. Have a look at his tweets here:
Lastly, he revealed the statement of the receipts and wrote, "On march 10th selena left for work and I stayed at the Westin as the receipts clearly showed with my friends nick and john before I left town. Once again not at the four seasons. We booked it for a couple days to stay for the defjam show but I bailed on the 11th to head back home."
"I won’t be using mike lowery anymore as an alias," he tweeted adding, "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."
