Justin Bieber Denies Paternity Suit Claims

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Justin Bieber is making the rounds promoting his latest album, Under the Mistletoe, which means that sooner or later, he was going to have to field questions about the accusations that he fathered a child with a 20-year-old woman named Mariah Yeater.

Bieber did so Friday on NBC's Today show, telling Matt Lauer, "I'd just like to say basically that none of those allegations are true.  I know I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim."

In her paternity suit, Yeater claims she had sex with Justin a year ago, backstage after one of his concerts, and claims he's the father of her three-month-old baby.  But Justin told Lauer that what Yeater is claiming doesn't make sense.

"I think it's crazy because every night after the show, I've gone right from the stage right to my car," he said. "So it's crazy that some people want to make up some false allegations, but to set the record straight, none of it is true. Never met the woman."

Justin's fans are furious about the paternity suit, and many have been threatening on Twitter to harm Yeater.  The singer said that he's willing to take the good with the bad in this business, and added, "I want to focus on what's real, like, my fans are real, [and] the charity work that I'm doing with this album is real."
