How Does Hailey Bieber Feel About Justin Bieber’s Sexual Assault Allegations?
In the past few years, numerous men in Hollywood have found themselves faced with reports of sexual assault. These days, Justin Bieber is the one in the hot seat as news of his alleged wrongdoings are making headlines everywhere.
Justin is also married to Hailey Bieber (formerly known as Hailey Baldwin), so many fans are probably wondering about their relationship at the moment. How does Hailey feel about these accusations targeting her husband?
Two women have accused Justin Bieber of sexual assault
On June 20, a woman named Danielle posted on Twitter about an alleged sexual assault incident concerning Bieber. She claimed Justin assaulted her in Austin, Texas, at a Four Seasons hotel after his performance at the SXSW festival.
Afterwards, another person named Kadi also accused Justin of rape and sexual assault. Kadi’s alleged incident happened in New York City in 2015 after she was invited to hang out with Bieber at his hotel room.
Justin Bieber denies these allegations
Justin has been vehemently denying that these sexual assault incidents took place. He wrote on Twitter: “Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly. 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.”
He responded to Danielle’s claims with receipts and emails that showed he stayed at an AirBnB with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez instead of the Four Seasons Hotel. Justin also noted that, while he did go to the hotel at some point later on, he only visited its restaurant.
On June 26, it was also revealed that Justin had filed a $20 million defamation lawsuit against both Danielle and Kadi. As reported by CNN, he claims that these allegations are “factually impossible.”
Source says Hailey Bieber is ‘very hurt’
Kadi’s claim that Justin assaulted her in 2015 coincides with the time period when Justin was in a relationship with Hailey. As such, it is easy to imagine that Justin’s wife could have feelings about the allegations.
A source told Hollywood Life: Hailey is very hurt because they take these things very seriously. It was very obvious this couldn’t be true and factually impossible and she knows that.”
The insider also noted that Hailey knows Justin was with him at the time of the 2015 sexual assault claim since there are “multiple pictures all over the internet showing this.”
However, it does not seem like these types of reports are new to Justin and those close to him. He has been a celebrity for many years now, and another source shared with Hollywood Life that these types of accusations have appeared before.
“Close friends are explaining that Justin has been dealing with these accusations for so many years,” the insider said. “He kind of goes numb to them and he just hopes people will see the truth.”
