Justin Bieber Files $20 Million Defamation Lawsuit After Sexual Assault Allegations Surface Online

Justin Bieber is suing two anonymous women for defamation after they posted sexual assault allegations on social media. Allegations that, according to the “Yummy” singer’s lawyers, are “factually impossible.”

Yep. The women, who are known only by their Twitter handles (@danielleglvn and @ItsnotKadi) and alleged first names (Danielle and Kadi), took to Twitter this past week to share their alleged encounters with the pop star. But according Bieber’s complaint filed on Thursday, June 25, he wasn’t even in the same place as these women on the dates they provided.

“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,” the complaint, which was obtained by People, says.

“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 complaint continues. “However, even though Bieber went to the restaurant, he did NOT stay at the Four Seasons Hotel.”

The filing goes on to explain that Justin was actually with the-girlfriend Selena Gomez that night, with whom he attended his last-minute SXSW performance. Then, the statement claims he went to stay in an Airbnb with Gomez and some friends, and even provided “details and receipts of the Rental Property where Bieber and Gomez and friends stayed, and for the Westin Hotel stay the next night.”

According to Kadi’s claims, she was “invited” by Bieber to the Langham Hotel in New York City at 2:30 a.m. on May 5, 2015, where the assault took place, but the filing calls her claims an impossibility. “The allegations are factually impossible, revealing and evidencing beyond any doubt that her social media post and allegations are a complete fabrication, an elaborate hoax,” the complaint says.

Also in the complaint, it’s noted that Kadi is a”superfan, a Belieber,” who is “desperate to meet him and desperate his attention and for fame.” But the filing also makes it clear that Bieber could not have sexually assaulted someone on the night of the Met Gala, calling her accusations an “outlandish” fabrication.

Bieber’s $20 million suit against these two women comes just days after he laid the evidence out on his personal Twitter account. “Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed,” he wrote after posting receipts and invoices in hopes that he could prove his innocence. “However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action.”
