"Factually impossible."

That from Stratford native and Canadian music megastar Justin Bieber, responding to a claim he sexually assaulted a woman at a Four Seasons hotel in Austin, Texas in March 2014.

The claim comes from a woman named Danielle, who posted from a Twitter account that was deleted shortly after Bieber posted a lengthy Twitter thread Sunday night.

Bieber said he doesn't normally address things because dealing with "random accusations" is something he's done throughout his career.

"But after talking with my wife and team, I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight," he Tweeted.

What followed was a series of Tweets, looking back at the weekend in question, when Bieber played a surprise show.

He wrote that he and Selena Gomez (his girlfriend at the time), along with some friends stayed at an AirBNB.

"We have also confirmed with the Four Seasons regional manager that I was never on property on the 9th of March 2014 and never a guest on the 9th or the 10th and I welcome all press to inquire with them if needed or wanted," Bieber pointed out.

Bieber also posted receipts, selfies and other evidence to back up his side of the story.

He says sexual abuse is something he doesn't take lightly, and while he wanted to speak up right away, Bieber said he wanted to gather all the facts before making a statement, out of respect for the "many victims who deal with these issues daily."

"Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously, and this is why my response was needed," Bieber Tweeted.

He goes on to say he's working with Twitter and authorities to take legal action.
