NEW YORK (Nov. 04) –, in a short appearance on NBC's "Today" show, has refuted the Mariah Yeater’s claim that he fathered her child as a result of backstage bathroom sex. “I have never met this woman who has filed paternity suit again me,” Bieber said further.
“To set the record straight, none of it is true,” 17-year-old singer declared firmly.
"I know I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim," Bieber told "Today" host Matt Lauer. "It's crazy, because every night after the show I've gone right from the stage right to my car. So it's crazy that some people want to make up such false allegations."
Mariah Yeater has already filed the paternity suit in San Diego Superior Court and she believes that the baby, she gave birth in July this year, is a result of brief sexual encounter with Bieber last year after one of his concerts at Staples Center, Los Angeles.
Yeater was then 19 while Bieber was only 16 that time, therefore, she might also be investigated for having sex with minor if her claim has some truth in it.
When the show’s anchor Lauer enquired if he knows Yeater, Bieber said decisively, "Never met the woman."
