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.

Danielle has since deleted her Twitter account.

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 in 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.

On Monday, after taking time to consult with wife Hailey and ‘his team’, Bieber posted a series of tweets denying the assault allegations leveled against him and threatening legal action against his accusers.

After acknowledging he has been subjected to ‘random allegations’ throughout his career, he said he had decided to speak out this time because ‘Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly.’ 

Bieber tweeted: ”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.’

Bieber posted a series of tweets with stories, pictures and receipts he said were consistent with his claim he wasn’t at the Four Seasons, but rather at an Airbnb and then the Westin Hotel on the nights of March 9 and 10, 2014, respectively.
