BIEBER DE­NIES AL­LEGED SEX AS­SAULT

Calgary Herald - - YOU -

Justin Bieber has hit back at al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual as­sault re­cently made against him on so­cial me­dia. A woman named Danielle de­scribed an al­leged as­sault in a since-deleted Twit­ter post, claim­ing it took place on March 9, 2014, at The Four Sea­sons Ho­tel in Austin, Texas, dur­ing the South by South­west fes­ti­val — where Bieber, shown, had per­formed.

Bieber re­sponded on Twit­ter, say­ing, “There is no truth to this story. In fact as I will soon show I was never present at that lo­ca­tion.” He later shared links to re­ports that he was with then-girl­friend Se­lena Gomez and friends at an Airbnb that night. He also in­vited the me­dia to con­firm the story with the ho­tel’s re­gional man­ager.

“Ev­ery claim of sex­ual abuse should be taken very se­ri­ously and this is why my re­sponse was needed,” he wrote. But “this story is fac­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble” and he said he will take “le­gal ac­tion.”
