Teen British Singer Denies Relationship with Justin Bieber

Image Courtesy Justin Timberlake via TwitterSeventeen-year-old British singer Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke has taken to Twitter to make it clear that she and Justin Bieber are not an item, despite reports claiming otherwise.  

Rumors of a relationship between the two teens were triggered after tabloids reported that they were spotted looking cozy at Justin Timberlake's post-Brit Awards concert last week. 

The U.K. paper The Mirror claimed that Justin and Ella-Paige had been introduced in L.A. by mutual friends, and he sent his Rolls Royce to pick her up from her home in London and take her on a date.  While the rumors of the two singers' potential couplehood fueled excitement for some fans, others used Twitter to trash talk Ella-Paige.

By Sunday, Ella-Paige was on Twitter to clarify their relationship status.  She started by retweeting a fan post that stated, "justin's not dating ella paige, she's only an acquaintance." 

Ella-Paige also retweeted one of her followers' comments, which stated, "so I just read a newspaper article about exactly what you think i'm talking about and it was so ridiculously untrue I actually reeled. are they just allowed to invent things? so and so and so and so have gone public/official. Well, no. what? no."

A friend of Ella-Paige, meanwhile, tweeted, "WOAH just checked my lil sis @EllaPaigeMusic mentions and it's ridiculous stories everywhere! Let my girl live dont believe everyting u read."

When yet another fan tweeted that some of Ella-Paige's friends have been claiming to the papers that she's just out to get famous or rich by dating Justin, the singer shut those rumors down.  She tweeted, "they're not my friends those 'sources' were people I barely knew who wanted quick cash x."
