Canadian Singer, Justin Bieber, has denied sexual assault allegations levelled against him.
A woman identified as Danielle had taken to Twitter on Saturday to accuse the singer of molesting her on March 9, 2014, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas.
According to her, she met Bieber while attending an event in Texas and claimed that she and her friends were invited back to the pop star’s hotel where she was raped.
She said she was 21 at the time of the incident but pulled down the tweet.
Reacting to the allegation, Bieber tweeted, ” 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.
“Rumours 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.
“In the past 24 hours, a new Twitter appeared that told a story of myself involved with sexual abuse on March 9, 2014, in Austin Texas at the Four seasons hotel. I want to be clear. There is no truth to this story. In fact, as I will soon show I was never present at that location.
“As her story told I did surprise a crowd in Austin at Sxsw where I appeared on stage with my then assistant side stage and sang a few songs. What this person did not know was that I attended that show with my 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.”
