According to Fox News, the alleged assault took place in a room of Four Seasons hotel but the documents from the court state that Bieber has never stayed in the said hotel and was instead staying at a rental property nearby with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
The second accuser said that the 26-year-old singer had assaulted her in New York City in the year 2015 while he was there to attend Met Gala.
According to TMZ, the suit stated that the accuser is a fan of the musician and is often seen waiting outside Bieber's hotels seeking attention from him.
Bieber had earlier taken to Twitter to refute the sexual assault claims and had said that he would take the legal route to deal with the accusations.
