TOO LATE TO SAY SORRY.
In the lawsuit, Bieber claims the Jane Does “fraudulently schemed to seek attention and fame by maliciously posting despicable, blatantly false, fabricated, defamatory accusations” that he engaged in sexual assault.
Bieber is seeking $10 million from each of the defendants, who are identified on social media as Danielle (@danielleglvn) and Kadi (@ItsnotKadi). He believes it could also be the same person using separate social-media accounts, the complaint says.
“It is abundantly clear that these two individuals are trying to capitalize on the climate of fear permeating the entertainment industry, Hollywood and corporate America, whereby it is open season for anyone to make any claim (no matter how vile, unsupported, and provably false) about anyone without consequence,” the complaint says.
The “Sorry” singer publicly addressed the allegations on Twitter over the weekend, noting “sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly” and sharing his denial of the allegations as well as various receipts that contradicted one account.
