Canadian singer Justin Bieber has been accused of sexual harassment by a woman named Daniel. Bieber has broken his silence on the allegations against him and clarified on Twitter. Bieber has categorically denied the allegations in a series of tweets. Bieber has also posted many photos, news articles, screenshots of tweets to prove his point.
A woman accused Justin Bieber of sexual assault in 2014 via an anonymous Twitter handle. The woman says the incident took place on March 9, 2014, at a hotel in Austin, Texas. Bieber was at an event with his girlfriend Selena Gomez at the time.
In his first tweet, Justin said that he usually did not give an explanation about the things that he had dealt with various allegations in his career so far. He also told that after talking to his wife and team he has decided to talk about this issue.
Justin Bieber says in a Twitter handle, “Rumors are rumours 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 allegation was primarily denied by Alison Kaye, the general manager of SB Projects of Scooter Braun. Alison Kaye told that the allegation was ‘factually impossible’. Also told that Bieber stayed at AirBnB the night, his hotel reservation in Austin did not begin until the following night, and he was at the Westin, not in the Four Seasons.
Later on Sunday, Bieber attached photos, receipts, emails etc. with his own tweet which proved that he stayed at Airbnb in Austin on March 9, 2020, and stayed at the Westin Hotel on March 10, 2020. He also told that he was with his girlfriend Selena Gomez on March 9 in Austin.
Justin wrote in his last tweet that every allegation of sexual abuse should be taken seriously. So, my speaking was necessary. However, the story was completely wrong and impossible based on the facts. He declared that he was going to take legal action on this together with Twitter and the authorities.
