Justin Bieber denies new accusations of sexual assault

This week in celebrities getting called out for their cruddy views or abhorrent behaviour, Canadian wunderkind Justin Bieber is facing new accusations of sexual assault.

Over the weekend, two women came forward with claims against the 26-year-old superstar, who has since publicly denied one of the allegations.

The first account came from a Twitter user named Danielle who says that Bieber took advantage of her in 2014 when she and two of her friends were invited to hang out with him at the Four Seasons hotel in Austin, Texas.

"Justin's friend brought my two friends to a room, and he took me to another room... he then asked me to join him in bed," the claims, shared in a since-deleted tweet, say. "That's when I asked myself 'How in the world is this normal? I'm in a hotel room with THE Justin Bieber.' I then began to think that this was suspicious."

The woman then proceeds to explain how Justin made physical advances, turning a kiss into "a steamy makeout session" and more.

"I told him that this was going too far and that we should stop because I needed to find my friends, most importantly because I felt guilty about [Bieber's then-girlfriend] Selena," the account continues.

"'Relax. They're all okay,'" she alleges the performer told her as he continued forcing himself upon her to the point that her "body felt unconscious."

The second accusation came from a woman named Kadi, who stood in solidarity with Danielle, saying that she, too had been raped by Bieber.

Kadi alleged that in 2015, Bieber locked her in a bathroom and proceeded to "kiss, touch and caress" her against her will while the two were at a get-together in his New York City hotel room.

"I asked him to stop and continued to say that I cannot have sex with anyone prior to marriage," she wrote, saying that he had followed her when she got up to use the restroom.

She alleges that she was eventually able to "run out to the living room" by kicking Bieber between the legs as she was being assaulted.

A representative from Bieber's team told media that the singer had not even stayed at that hotel on the night of the first assault, which Bieber himself backed up on social media.

"I want to be clear. There is no truth to this story," he tweeted of Danielle's allegations the day after they surfaced. He then proceeded to chronicle the time period in question, sharing receipts for rooms booked at the Westin hotel the following few nights and sharing articles that showed he was with his now ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez (apparently staying in an Airbnb) on the night in question.

"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," Bieber continued.

Though he dedicated 15 tweets to denying the first woman's story, he has yet to comment on the second allegation.

The news comes just days after actor Ansel Elgort was accused of a similar crime, and multiple reports of comedian Chris D'Elia being a sexual predator came to light.
