Justin Bieber tweeted;
“Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly.
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. I want to be clear. There is no truth to this story.
In fact, 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.
“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.”
