Justin Bieber: “None of those allegations are true”
Earlier this week, we reported that 20-year-old Mariah Yeater is claiming that Justin Bieber is the father of her three-month-old child. Bieber’s team has denied the accusations, calling the claims “malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false.” Now, Bieber is speaking out about the allegations himself.
Appearing on “TODAY” this morning, Bieber talked to Matt Lauer about Yeater and the claims. “I’d just like to say that none of those allegations are true,” Bieber said before a plaza full of screaming fans. “[As a star,] I know I’m gonna be a target, but I’m never gonna be a victim.”
Bieber added that “It’s crazy that some people wanna make up such false accusations,” adding that he’s never met Yeater.
