Justin Bieber and his legal team have shot down a new lawsuit by a 20-year-old woman from California who claims that the teen pop star fathered her child. According to a report in Star magazine, Mariah Yeater says that she and Bieber, 17, had sex backstage at a concert in Los Angeles and the act resulted in the birth of her baby boy three months ago. Yeater is seeking financial support from the singer.
"While we haven't yet seen the lawsuit, it's sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims," Bieber's representative wrote in a statement to Us Weekly. "We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations."
