Justin Bieber and Ansel Elgort Accused of Sexual Harassment

Justin Bieber and Ansel Elgort were, on separate occasions, dipped into sexual harassment allegations over the weekend. The scandal began on Saturday when an unidentified woman came out with her story about how the movie star sexually abused her in 2014, while she was 17. “I was sexually assaulted a couple of days after I turned 17,” read the now-deleted tweet, “I was only f***ing 17 and he was in his 20s. So when it happened, instead of asking me if I wanted to stop having sex knowing it was my first time and I was sobbing in pain and I didn’t want to do it”, she narrated.


Soon after, two women came out with the same accusations about pop star Justin Bieber. The first, Danielle says that she attended Scooter Braun’s (Bieber’s manager) event in 2014, when she and her friends were allegedly invited back to a hotel where Bieber was, “…and then he took me to another room. Justin had made me agree not to say anything to anyone, or I can get in serious legal trouble.” The second woman, Kadi narrated almost the same experience which happened to her the following year.


Both Ansel and Justin have issued statements on Twitter refuting the allegations, with the latter vowing to institute legal action against Danielle.
