Musician Justin Bieber has denied a sexual assault allegation leveled against him over social media.

Bieber claimed the allegations were “factually impossible” and will take legal action, according to a series of tweets he shared Sunday.

“I don’t normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career but after talking with my wife and team I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight,” Bieber began a series of tweets.

“Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly,” he added. “I wanted to speak out right away but out of respect to so many victims who deal with these issues daily I wanted to make sure I gathered the facts before I made any statement.” (RELATED: Justin Bieber Responds To Criticism About His Marriage To Hailey Baldwin)

Bieber’s denial comes after an unidentified woman accused him of assaulting her on March 9, 2014 at a SXSW afterparty. The woman’s tweets have since been deleted.

The “I Don’t Care” singer shared hotel receipts, articles and photos that showed he was with his girlfriend at the time, Selena Gomez.

Bieber claimed he was never at the Four Seasons in Austin the day of the allegations and has confirmed it with the manager of the hotel. He encouraged press to reach out to the Four Seasons.

Bieber ended his denial with the claim that he would be taking legal action after working with Twitter.

“Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed,” he said. “However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action.”
