Pop superstar Justin Bieber says a photo showing him with friends in New York proves that he did not rape a fan after allegations against him.
Bieber, 26, says the photo shows him with friends the night he is charged with sexual assault in a hotel.
Bieber says he was at the Met Gala and then went to Rihanna’s afterparty before the photo was taken.
A source said, “This photo is crucial to Justin’s alibi because it shows that he stayed outside after the Met Gala and was not in a hotel at the time of the alleged attack.
“He can call friends to save his version of events and hopefully help end this horrific saga.
“Justin is used to being targeted by trolls and being the subject of crazy claims, but disgusting stuff like this is on a whole new level.
Last weekend, the fan said on social media that Bieber raped her in 2015.
He also denied raping another fan in Austin, Texas, the previous year.
He claims that he was all the time with the lover of the time, the singer Selena Gomez.
“Normally I don’t deal with things because I’ve dealt with random charges all my career, but after talking with my wife and my team, I decided to talk about an issue tonight,” wrote Bieber, who married model Hailey Baldwin last year.
“Every complaint of sexual abuse must be taken very seriously and that is why my response was necessary. However, this story is actually impossible and that is why I will work with Twitter and the authorities to initiate legal proceedings, ”wrote Bieber.
