JUSTIN Bieber has broken his silence to deny an allegation of sexual assault made against him.
The singer, 26, took to Twitter to post a lengthy thread, vehemently refuting claims by an anonymous woman named only as “Danielle.”

Over the weekend, Danielle alleged she was assaulted during the time of the SXSW music festival in Austin in March 2014.
Bieber came forward to address the accusations on Sunday, after discussion with his wife Hailey and his team.
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.
“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.

He claimed: “There is no truth to this story. In fact as I will soon show I was never present at that location.
“As her story told I did surprise a crowd in Austin at Sxsw where I appeared on stage with my then assistant side stage and sang a few songs.
“What this person did not know was that I attended that show with my then gf Selena Gomez.”
The singer then proceeded to post evidence to back up his version of events, sharing a photo of himself on stage with his assistant off to the side.
He also posted a photograph of him and Selena walking the city streets on March 9, 2014 — the night Danielle’s alleged assault took place.
He also posted a number of articles noting that Selena was with him during this trip and that they reportedly “didn’t arrive in Austin that night from Selena’s show in Houston until late in the night.”

Bieber added that he “never stayed at the four seasons on the 9th or the 10th” of March, and that a fan who tweeted on March 10, 2014 that they saw him there had clarified in a new tweet that she had allegedly only seen him at the restaurant.
He continued: “I stayed with Selena and our friends at an airbnb on the 9th and on the 10th stayed at a Westin because our hotel reservation at LÀ Quinta and not the four seasons was messed up.”
In addition to the string of tweets, Bieber shared photos of various email exchanges and receipts noting the supposed hotel mix-ups and arrangements.
The 26-year-old said he also hoped the photo of him and Selena in Austin on March 9 “should make it clear that we were together that night and went from the venue to our Airbnb and never went to the four seasons.”
He attached the supposed receipt for the Airbnb to the tweet.
The singer alleged he confirmed with the Four Seasons hotel that he did not stay there on the night of the supposed assault[/caption]
Bieber continued on Twitter: “We have also confirmed with the Four Seasons regional manager that I was never on property on the 9th of March 2014 and never a guest on the 9th or the 10th.
“On march 10th selena left for work and I stayed at the Westin as the receipts clearly showed with my friends nick and john before I left town.
“Once again not at the four seasons. We booked it for a couple days to stay for the defjam show but I bailed on the 11th to head back home.”
Concluding his thread on Twitter, Bieber noted that “every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously,” which is why he felt his “response was needed.”
The Intentions singer added that, because Danielle’s story is allegedly “factually impossible,” he plans on taking “legal action” and will be working with both Twitter and the authorities to do so.
Bieber’s comprehensive denial came after a Twitter user identified as Danielle alleged he sexually assaulted her on March 9, 2014 while he was in Austin.

Danielle claimed that she and a couple of friends were invited back to the Four Seasons by Bieber and another man after meeting the singer at an after-party.
She alleged that he kissed her and then sexually assaulted her “without consent.”
Danielle’s Twitter account and the tweets were subsequently removed.
