Twitter user Danielle claimed she was assaulted by Bieber in a room at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas, on March 9, 2014, following an event that was part of the city’s SXSW festival.
The singer counters that while he was in Austin on that date, he did not stay at the Four Seasons Hotel and did not have a room there.
He states he and his then girlfriend Selena Gomez stayed at a rental property and that she was with him all night.
According to TMZ, the Canadian star believes Danielle made up her account based on the fact that he ate at a restaurant at the Four Seasons on March 10.
As far as Twitter user Kadi is concerned, Bieber reckons she is a superfan who waits outside hotels hoping to meet him, but they have in fact never met.
She claimed he sexually assaulted her on his room at the Langham Hotel in NYC at 2:30 a.m. on May 5, 2015.
Bieber, who was in New York on that date to attend the Met Gala, describes her story as ‘an elaborate hoax.’
He states in his legal filing that after the gala, he went on to a private party where he stayed until 4 a.m. and then got a snack at a hot dog stand.
