Justin Bieber is suing two social media users who claimed he sexually assaulted them several years ago, according to reports.
The accusers, named Danielle and Kadi on social media, came forward with their allegations last week but Bieber dismissed their claims as "outrageous, fabricated lies," according to TMZ.
In a series of tweets, Bieber detailed his whereabouts and presented evidence to disprove the accusations.
Danielle first claimed that the "Yummy" hitmaker sexually assaulted her on March 9, 2014, at a Four Seasons Hotel room in Austin, Texas, but Bieber argued that, although he did make a surprise appearance at SXSW, he did not stay at the hotel but at a nearby rental property with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
Kadi meanwhile alleged that Bieber sexually assaulted her on May 5, 2015, at a Langham Hotel room in New York City, but Bieber claimed she made up the story based on reports that he was appearing at the Met Gala.
The pop icon confirmed he was at the event but then attended a private after-party during the hours Kadi claimed he sexually assaulted her. Bieber added that he had several witnesses to attest to his whereabouts, which further proved Kadi's allegation was "a poor, but damaging, fabrication."
The pop star believes the social media accounts belong to the same person or are coordinated to destroy his reputation. He is asking for more than $20 million in damages.
In a statement to Twitter, Bieber said he did not usually respond to rumors but these instances were different.
"Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed," he wrote. "However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action."
