Justin Beiber fights back over claims of rape in 2014
Justin Beiber took to the internet to post a series of tweets denying the first woman’s allegations, saying he was with Selena at the time and not at the location where the accuser said he raped her.
He also posted pictures of Airbnb receipts, fan tweets and old articles proving his whereabouts at the time.
He said: “Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed.
“However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action.”
Two women took to Twitter over the weekend to say that the singer, 26, sexually assaulted and raped them in 2014 and 2015 respectively when he was in a relationship with Selena Gomez.
The first accuser, who has now deleted her posts, said she was inspired to speak after the allegations brought against actor Ansel Elgort, which he denies.
The woman alleged that she was assaulted by the Yummy singer on March 9, 2014.
In a lengthy statement posted on the social media site, the woman says Justin was in a relationship with Selena at the time of the alleged assault.
She alleged that the star was playing a gig in Houston, Texas, when she and two of her friends headed to an event at Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden after hearing that it was being staged by Justin’s manager Scooter Braun.
The accuser says Justin, who married model Hailey Baldwin in 2018, surprised the 100-strong audience with a few songs, publicly dedicating some to Selena.
She then says a man approached her and her friends and asked if they’d like to meet Justin after the show, so they agreed and waited.
She says Justin took pictures with them and chatted to them for around 20 minutes before inviting them back to the Four Seasons Hotel, where she thought she’d get to hang out with a “huge celebrity”.
The woman, who alleges she has pictures of herself and Justin that she won’t share for legal reasons, says she found herself alone with Justin, who asked her to join him on the bed.
She says she made small talk, asking where Selena was, but that Justin leaned in and kissed her.
She then alleges that he raped her.
She wrote: “Keep in mind this was in 2014, around the time where he was ‘out of control’. Our small kisses then turned into a steamy make-out session. He had pushed me down onto the bed after about 10 minutes of sitting up, got on top of me, started kissing me down my neck and made his way down to my stomach.
“He found my jeans, unbuttoned them, removed then, and started tracing my underwear with his fingers. My thoughts then started to roam around my head and I started to second guess myself.
“I kept asking, ‘What about Selena?’, ‘Did I consent to this?’, ‘How will she react if she finds out?’, ‘Where are my friends?’, ‘How is this normal and okay?'”
The woman alleges she asked Justin to stop, telling him it had “gone too far” but that he told her to “relax” and that her friends were ok.
She went on: “He then pulled my underwear down, unbuckled his pants, pulled his underwear down, grabbed the bed covers, and threw it over us. His body was on top of mine, skin-to-skin.
“I was very uncomfortable, and I felt myself starting to hyperventilate. I told him to get off because I was starting to worry about my friends, but it was too late. He forced himself inside me before I got the last few words out. He was thrusting in and out of me.
“As I laid there, speechless. My body felt unconscious. I don’t want to go into detail about what happened next.”
