Justin Bieber has filed a $20m defamation lawsuit against two women who accused him of raping them.
Earlier on, two women took to twitter to accuse Justin of raping them.
His first accuser, Danielle tweeted Saturday night, that the incident occurred at an Austin, Texas, hotel on March 9, 2014 while the second woman, Kadi alleged that she was raped in 2015.
Justin Bieber, reacting to the accusations 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.
“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.
Following the allegations, Justin Bieber has filed a $20m lawsuit against the two women.
Bieber’s lawyers say the accusations against him are “factually impossible, and disproven both by indisputable documentary evidence and the individuals’ own admissions.”
The suit claims that the women “fraudulently schemed to seek attention and fame by maliciously posting despicable, blatantly false, fabricated, defamatory accusations that Justin Bieber engaged in sexual assault.”
