A judge granted a request by Justin Bieber's lawyers on Thursday to subpoena Twitter for information about the identity of women who accused him of sexual assault on social media. The claims of the singer's lawyer are demonstrably false through eyewitnesses and photographic evidence.
"We just want to find out who is behind these two accounts and it can be the same person," Bieber's lawyer Evan N. Spiegel told Los Angeles Supreme Court Justice Terry Green, who issued Bieber's last name before his judgment mispronounced and the lawyer if he should know who the plaintiff was.
When Spiegel replied that Bieber was a well-known recording artist in certain population groups, the judge replied: "I collect demographics that are not 73 and older."
The accused are identified as Jane Doe 1 and 2 in the complaint lodged by the 26-year-old Canadian singer on June 26. Spiegel told Green that the women can only be served once they have been identified and that the subpoena submitted on Twitter will help. However, it may take months for the information to be accessed by the social networking service.
A tweet from a woman who called herself Danielle claimed she was attacked by Bieber in a Austin, Texas hotel in March 2014. She claims that Bieber invited her and two friends to a hotel in a bar after a surprise performance in front of a crowd, claiming that he took her to a private room and attacked her.
The second woman identified herself as Kadi and claimed in her tweet that Bieber had sexually assaulted her in a New York hotel in May 2015.
Spiegel told Green that the prosecutors had not "fabricated" their allegations "carefully", since both allegations could be refuted by eyewitnesses who knew where Bieber was on those days and photos obtained from the paparazzi.
Bieber has been married to 23-year-old model Hailey Baldwin since 2018.
