Justin Bieber can subpoena Twitter to reveal the identities of the two women who accused him of sexual assault.
A judge recently made this ruling in Justin’s favor.
Justin Bieber continues to fight against his sexual assault allegations. In a recent ruling, a judge decided that Justin’s lawyer can subpoena Twitter to reveal the identities of the two women who anonymously accused Justin on social media. His attorney believes that once they can ID the women, they will be able to prove that the claims are “provably false” through eyewitness and photographic evidence.
“We just want to uncover who is behind these two accounts, and it may be the same person,” his lawyer, Evan N. Spiegel, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Terry Green.
Last month, Justin took legal action against two anonymous women who accused him of sexual assault. According to People, the singer filed a $20 million defamation lawsuit against the two women (who go by Danielle and Kadi), and his lawyers say the accusations against him are “factually impossible and disproven both by indisputable documentary evidence and the individuals’ own admissions.”
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.

After the accusations became public, Justin posted his response on Twitter in a series of tweets. “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.”
He 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.”
