Justin Bieber files $20million lawsuit against sexual assault accusers
After issuing a strict denial of the accusations of sexual assault made against him, Justin Bieber has followed it up with a $20million lawsuit against the two accusers.
Far Out Magazine reported earlier this week that two women released detailed statements accusing the singer of serious sexual assault. The first woman, who was identified as Danielle, tweeted a statement in which she details an alleged incident of sexual assault. In her statement, the woman claims that an attack occurred in March 2014 in Austin, Texas.
A second woman, identified as Kadi, also came forward and detailed an alleged incident took place in May 2015 in New York City.
Bieber, with an instant and strong denial, asserted his plans to take legal action against the women. Now, he has submitted his case which sees the pop star sue the two women for defamation. Bieber is seeking $20 million in damages which amounts to $10 million per person.
In the suit, which was obtained by TMZ, Bieber claims that the accusations are “factually impossible” and described them as “outrageous, fabricated lies.” In a separate source, the Blast claims that Bieber’s case adds that the accusers have “fraudulently schemed to seek attention and fame by maliciously posting despicable, blatantly false, fabricated, defamatory accusations that Justin Bieber engaged in sexual assault.”
The lawsuit also adds: “It is abundantly clear that these two individuals are trying to capitalize on the climate of fear permeating the entertainment industry” adding that the singer also has “indisputable documentary evidence.”
