She did not reveal the identity of her friends. Later on, the tweet and the account were later deleted from Twitter.

“I don’t normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career but after talking with my wife [Hailey Baldwin] and the team I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight,” Justin Bieber shared a series of tweets in which he addressed the allegations.

In the tweets, he mentioned he was with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez and provided articles, hotel receipts and screenshots of emails. He even said that he plans to take legal action. “Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly. I wanted to speak out right away but out of respect to so many victims who deal with these issues daily I wanted to make sure I gathered the facts before I made any statement,” Bieber wrote.

“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. 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,” he further said.

Bieber concluded by saying “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.”
