Justin Bieber’s song “Baby” is one of his biggest hits, but you’ve probably heard that there’s a new baby causing the teen heartthrob to make scandalous headlines. A 20-year old mother is claiming that the Biebs is her 3-month old’s baby daddy. The (former?) fan, Mariah Yeater, claims that she was taken backstage by a security guard to meet Justin, who was 16 years old at the time, at the Staples Center in L.A. after a concert. The pair supposedly got a little frisky after Justin took her someplace private. She has filed a paternity suit against him in San Diego Superior Court, asking for a paternity test and financial support if it turns out he’s the daddy. Ironically, the baby mama could get in legal trouble if it turns out the baby is a Bieber. Since Justin was a minor at the time and Mariah was 19, she could be charged with statutory rape, a misdemeanor with punishment of up to a year in jail.
The Biebs is denying everything and trying to distance himself from the entire thing. “It’s crazy. Every night after the show I’m gone right from the stage right to the car, so it’s crazy that some people want to make such false allegations,” he said during an appearance on the NBC Today show this morning. He was there to promote his new album Under the Mistletoe and was asked about the, uh, situation. “Never met the woman. None of the allegations are true,” he emphasized. He definitely looks calm, cool and collected in these Gucci sunglasses during a romantic stroll with girlfriend Selena Gomez.
