Note: This article contains descriptions of alleged assault.


Justin Bieber has responded to an allegation of sexual assault. Yesterday (June 20), a woman identified as Danielle tweeted a lengthy statement detailing an alleged incident that occurred in March 2014 in Austin, Texas. Her Twitter account has since been removed.

A second woman identified as Kadi, detailed her account via Twitter following Danielle’s post. Kadi wrote that the alleged incident took place in May 2015 in New York City. Justin Bieber has not addressed Kadi’s allegations. Find screenshots of the women’s statements at Pop Crave.

Pitchfork has reached out to Justin Bieber’s representatives for further comment.


In her statement, Danielle claimed that she attended a small event in Austin hosted by Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun on March 9, 2014. “My friends and I were enjoying ourselves the entire night,” Danielle wrote, adding, “A man then approached me and my friends and asked us if we would like to wait after the show to meet Justin. Of course we said yes. My friends and I thought it was strange at first and sketchy, but as promised, we all waited after the show because we were fans. Justin came up to us, we took some pictures and chatted for about 20 minutes.”

Danielle continued that Bieber and another man allegedly invited her and her friends to the Four Seasons Hotel. “Once again, we said yes. We didn’t think anything of it, other than hanging out with a huge celebrity,” Danielle wrote. “Fast forward to arriving at the hotel. Justin’s friend brought my 2 friends to a room, and then he took me to another room. Justin had made me agree not to say anything to anyone, or I can get in serious legal trouble. He asked for my phone and put it to charge.”

According to Danielle, Bieber “asked [her] to join him in bed,” and she said they also kissed briefly. Danielle wrote that Bieber “pushed [her] down onto the bed,” undressed her, and “told him that this was going too far and that [they] should stop.” Bieber allegedly told Danielle to “relax,” “pulled [her] underwear down,” and “forced himself inside [her].”

“As I laid there, speechless. My body felt unconscious,” Danielle wrote. “I don’t want to go into detail about what happened next. Although, this was 6 years ago, although I was one year older than him (he was 20, I was 21), I was still sexually assaulted without consent.”


Today, Justin Bieber seemingly addressed Danielle’s allegations in multiple tweets. “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,” Bieber wrote. “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 then shared numerous receipts and photos, describing his alleged whereabouts around the time of the alleged assault.

Bieber closed his thread, “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.”


Kadi’s allegations followed Danielle’s on Twitter. She claimed that she was sexually assaulted by Bieber at New York’s Langham hotel in the early morning hours of May 5, 2015. According to her statement, Bieber allegedly kissed and groped Kadi before allegedly penetrating her without consent. Kadi claimed that she then pushed and kicked Bieber and ran from the scene.

Justin Bieber has not responded to Kadi’s allegations.
