Yesterday, all the Beliebers were thrown into a tizzy when news broke that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] had been slapped with a shocking lawsuit claiming that he was the father of a young baby.
But the 17-year-old pop star is coming back swinging today, flatly denying any involvement with the woman.
20-year-old Mariah Yeater testified in a signed affidavit that she and Justin had sex backstage at one of his concerts when she was 19 years old.
Now, she wants him to take a paternity test and “provide adequate support” for the baby.
One of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm]‘s representatives quickly shot down the scandalous accusation:
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.
Even Justin himself vaguely referenced the rumors today on Twitter:
A court hearing is set for later this year.
