Justin Bieber files $20 million defamation lawsuit over sexual assault claims
Justin Bieber has filed a $20million defamation lawsuit against the two women, Danielle and Kadi, who accused him of rape on social media.
The 26-year-old singer was forced to deny claims from the two women who both took to Twitter to accuse him of sexually assaulting them in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Bieber states that he has ‘indisputable documentary evidence’ to prove the sexual assault claims are ‘outrageous and fabricated lies.
The Singer claims the tweets by Danielle and Kadi are ‘malicious’ in that they appear to be a coordinated effort to tarnish his reputation.
Danielle on the 20th of June had tweeted that the Canadian singer had molested 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.
Bieber however, claimed there was no truth to Danielle’s allegation and he can prove it.
According to the court documents, Bieber never had a room at the hotel but was instead staying at a nearby rental property with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez. Kadi, on the other hand, had claimed the singer assaulted her at the Langham Hotel in NYC around 2:30 AM on the morning of May 5, 2015. Once again, Bieber says this is factually impossible and calls Kadi’s social media post “an elaborate hoax.”
According to Bieber, Kadi is a superfan who waits outside hotels for him, is desperate to meet him and desperate for fame. However, Bieber claims Kadi has never met him and says she even admitted to such in her own tweets after the date she now claims he sexually assaulted her.
As for the May 5, 2015 allegation, Bieber said Kadi fabricated it because she knew Bieber attended the Met Gala. Bieber said he did attend the event, but went to a private after-party afterwards where he stayed until almost 4am, then hit up a hot dog stand. Bieber claims there is photographic evidence and several witnesses to this and he calls the 2:30 AM allegation made by Kadi an “impossibility – a poor, but a damaging, fabrication.”
In the legal document, according to TMZ, Bieber thinks the two social media account may, in fact, be run by the same person.
He is seeking $20 million in damages, $10 million for each story
