Billboard and Entertainment Tonight, the singer is suing this women and another accuser for $10 million each.

"Bieber will not stand idly by while Defendants attempt to get attention and fame for themselves, by recklessly spreading malicious lies that he engaged in egregious criminal conduct by assaulting Defendants, and Bieber is therefore bringing this defamation/libel action to clear his name and set the record straight," the documents state, according to the outlets.

The outlets report that the other accuser, who made her claims as the Twitter user @ItsnotKadi, said she was sexually assaulted by Bieber in May 2015.

USA TODAY has reached out to Bieber's reps for comment.

After Bieber denied the claims on Twitter Monday, he followed up with a series of receipts, emails and articles detailing his time in Austin in 2014. 

"Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed," Bieber said in the final tweet. "However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and ities to take legal action," Bieber wrote.
