Bieber continued, “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.”
Seemingly referring to Danielle’s claims, Bieber explained, “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.”
In a follow-up tweet, Bieber shared an article from 2014 that “talks about Selena being there with me.” He also shared photos that “clearly show me on stage with my assistant sidestage and the other with both of us in the streets of Austin afterwards on March, 2014.”
Per Danielle’s recounting of the events, she met the singer at an event hosted by Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun. She alleged that after the show a man approached her and her friends and asked if they wanted to meet the singer.
Additionally, she claimed that she and her friends joined Bieber at the Four Seasons. “Justin’s friend brought my 2 friends to a room, and he took me to another room,” Danielle alleged in her statement on Twitter, before adding that she had asked Bieber where Gomez was “to make conversation, he told me not to worry about it and that she’ll come up to the room later.”
