Justin Bieber Sexual Abuse Accusers:
The Canadian singer has recently been coiled up in sexual assault allegations. Two women publically accused Justin Bieber on Twitter of sexual assault. He immediately took this matter to the court and filed a $20 million defamation lawsuit against them.
According to reports, a recent verdict by the court has permitted Justin to subpoena Twitter to identify the anonymous women. The ruling works in his favor as revealing the true identity of the women can allow him to provide further evidence.
Bieber also addressed this matter on his Twitter handle by stating that,
“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.”
He further said
“I don’t normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career, but after talking with my wife and team, I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight,” he wrote. “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.”
According to one of the accusations Justin was “involved with sexual abuse on March 9, 2014, in Austin Texas at Four Seasons”. He has denied the allegation and added that he’d prove that he was never present over there.
His lawyer has stated that the facts mentioned in the allegations are false and impossible. He further added that the accusations are “disproven both by indisputable documentary evidence and the individual’s admissions.”
As per Twitter guidelines, the information of a Twitter account kept private will not be disclosed a legal notice such as a subpoena, in this case, is served. His lawyer expressed that unless the women are identified, the allegations cannot be served. Justin has won his first legal battle by acquiring the subpoena but how long it may take to acquire the information is still uncertain. In most of the previous cases, it took several months to identify a social media user.
Justin is determined to fight this battle and prove his innocence.
