Justin Bieber is seeking legal recourse against two anonymous women who previously accused him on social media of sexual assault.

In a filing of a defamation lawsuit against the two Jane Does (who remain anonymous save for their Twitter handles @danielleglvn and @ItsnotKadi and respective names they went by on social media: Danielle and Kadi, respectively), Bieber’s lawyers say the accusations against him are “factually impossible, and disproven both by indisputable documentary evidence and the individuals’ own admissions.”

“Danielle claimed she was sexually assaulted at the Four Seasons Hotel on March 9, 2014, however, Bieber did not stay at that hotel in March 2014 and there are multiple witnesses and documentary evidence to dispute Danielle’s malicious lie,” the complaint, filed on Thursday and obtained by PEOPLE, says, before calling Kadi’s accusation “likewise factually impossible, are contradicted by her own prior written statements, are supported only by falsified or faked texts.”

“Danielle fabricated her sexual encounter with Bieber at the Four Seasons Hotel because it was publicly reported that Bieber had dinner at the Four Seasons Restaurant on March 10, 2014 and presumed that Bieber was at the hotel because of the public reports of him dining at the restaurant,” the filing continues. “However, even though Bieber went to the restaurant, he did NOT stay at the Four Seasons Hotel.”

According to the filing, Bieber and his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez both attended his last-minute, surprise performance at SXSW that night, with him dedicating a song to her.

He was later photographed leaving the venue with Gomez, according to the filing, and they then went back to a rental property they were staying at “along with several friends.” In one of the exhibits, Bieber’s legal team presents “details and receipts of the Rental Property where Bieber and Gomez and friends stayed, and for the Westin Hotel stay the next night.”

Meanwhile, Kadi tweeted that on the early morning of May 5, 2015, at “around 2:30am, I was invited … to Bieber’s hotel (Langham hotel)” in New York City, before she was sexually assaulted.

“The allegations are factually impossible, revealing and evidencing beyond any doubt that her social media post and allegations are a complete fabrication, an elaborate hoax,” the filing says. It also points out that Kadi is a Bieber “superfan, a Belieber,” who, the filing claims, is “desperate to meet him and desperate his attention and for fame.”

“Kadi has admitted on her Twitter page that she wants to be famous, to be a star on a Netflix series by using Twitter, stating in a pinned tweet, ‘I wanna star in a netflix series! twitter do ur thing’ ” in 2018, according to the filing.

The filing also says that, because of the timing of tweets both from Danielle and Kadi, it appears that Kadi “knew and had the details of the Danielle Tweet/post prior to its release, and had her accusation ready to also release in conjunction.”

“Kadi, as an apparent superfan, may have waited outside his hotel at times, and like other fans, may have managed a fan photograph with him, but (if so) that is where any reality of her story ends, and her false, defamatory statements begin,” the filing says, adding that the idea that Bieber could have sexually assaulted someone on the night of the Met Gala is an “outlandish” fabrication.
