Justin Bieber is at the centre of a lawsuit after a 20-year-old woman claimed he is the father of her child.
According to a gossip magazine, Mariah Yeater - who gave birth to a baby boy three months ago - says she and the teen popstar, 17, had sex backstage at a show in LA. YMariah, from California, has since filed a paternity lawsuit against Bieber, asking for financial support from the singer.
In a statement, a representative for Bieber said: "While we haven't yet seen the lawsuit, it's sad that someone would fabricate, malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations."
Rumours of a liaison may come as a shock to fans after Justin was last seen adopting a dog with girlfriend Selena Gomez. Mariah will of course be prosecuted for statatory rape if these claims are true, as the legal age of consent in America is 18.
