Justin Bieber releases receipts, accuser apologizes?

Justin Bieber responds to sexual assault allegations.

In a series of tweets this Sunday, Justin Bieber released receipts denying a woman’s claims that the singer sexually assaulted her in 2014 following his performance at SXSW in Austin, Texas. 

The woman in question, Danielle, claimed that she was sexually assaulted by Bieber on March 9, 2014, after she went to his room at the Four Seasons Hotel after his surprise performance at the SXSW festival. In a since deleted tweet, she said that she had a “steamy make-out session” with the singer that culminated with him unbuttoning her jeans before he “forced himself inside” her. 

Bieber responded to the allegations on Twitter saying “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.”

He went on to say “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.”

These were the first of many tweets that Bieber then released to prove that he was never at the location mentioned by Danielle. Here are the receipts: 

He finished the series of tweets writing “Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed,” he wrote. “However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action.”

Since then, another woman has spoken out, standing with Danielle and claiming that she too is a victim of sexual assault by Justin Bieber. Kadi released a note on Twitter saying “I believe Danielle, I am a victim of sexual assault by Justin Bieber too.” 

Bieber is yet to respond to these allegations and many fans have stood by him saying that these receipts are proof that he is innocent. Others however have stood with Danielle and vocalized their support for her.

A now-deleted account who claims to be Danielle has since tweeted an apology saying that the allegations were just a joke. It however remains unclear if this was tweeted by the same woman that accused him or by a troll account.
