Justin Bieber Has Been Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Two Women
Justin Bieber has been accused of sexually assaulting two women, reports Vulture. The women detailed the alleged experiences on Twitter yesterday.
The first allegation was posted by a woman called Danielle, who chose to not reveal her last name. She shared four pages of what she alleges happened between herself and Justin Bieber, with the caption: “My name is Danielle. On March 9, 2014, I was sexually assaulted by Justin Bieber”.
In the story, Danielle claims she met Bieber at a music event in Austin, Texas, in March 2014, where she says he sexually assaulted her. She was 21 at the time.
“My friends and I were enjoying ourselves the entire night,” she wrote. “A man then approached me and my friends and asked us if we wanted to meet Justin. Of course we said yes.”
Bieber apparently hung out with them for 20 minutes before then inviting them to his room at the Four Seasons Hotel. “Once again, we said yes,” she wrote. “We didn’t think anything of it, other than hanging out with a huge celebrity.”
Once they reached the hotel, Danielle alleges that Justin’s friends took Danielle’s two friends to a room, while Justin brought her to his. “Justin had made me agree to not say anything to anyone, or I can get in serious legal trouble,” she wrote.
“He then asked me to join him in bed. That’s when I asked myself, How in the world is this normal?”
She claimed they consensually had a “steamy make-out session” but that what happened was sexual assault. “My body felt unconscious,” she wrote. “I don’t want to go into detail about what happened next.” You can read the post in full here.
Allison Kaye, a rep for Justin, denied the claims in an Instagram message to PopCrave, claiming that Justin wasn’t at the Four Seasons on that day – he was instead at an Airbnb.
Shortly after Danielle shared her story, Twitter user @ItsnotKadi also came forward, alleging Justin had assaulted her in 2015. "I believe Danielle, I am a victim of sexual assault by Justin Bieber too," she captioned her story.
In it, Kadi claimed Justin's bodyguard had invited her to the singer's room after a meet-and-greet and that she’d consensually made out with Justin on a couch. Things took a turn, she says, when Justin locked them in a bathroom and started caressing her body. “I asked him to stop and continued to say that I cannot have sex with anyone prior to marriage,” she wrote. Kadi claims that the musician then proceeded to sexually assault her on his bed, but Kadi pushed and kicked him between his legs and ran out to the living room. You can read her claims in full here.
Since the story was shared, Bieber fans found historic tweets Kadi had written after the alleged assault took place that seem to contradict Kadi's allegations. In a tweet written in June 2015, Kadi writes “I swear if we don’t meet I’ll find you and f*** you @justinbieber”.

Kadi has since defended herself, writing, "Most of my mutuals are jb stans and it would’ve been weird if I randomly unstanned him without giving a reason. Because they all know I’ve been a belieber since 2010. But they don’t know what happened on May 5th 2015. So I just continued to stan."
When we're confronted with sexual assault and rape allegations, it's important to note that just because an alleged victim's behaviour doesn't align with how most individuals assume they would act after a sexual assault, it doesn't automatically make an accuser's claims untrue.
The allegations against Justin come days after The Fault In Our Stars actor Ansel Elgort was accused of sexually assaulting an underage teenager in 2014 – an allegation he denies.
