"Baby" singer Justin Bieber has denied claims he fathered a fan’s child, calling the paternity allegation “completely untrue”.
An unnamed 25-year-old woman claims she became pregnant with Bieber’s child when they met at a TGI Friday’s restaurant in Miami and went on to have a one night stand in February 2010.
She claims to have given birth to the Canadian pop star’s alleged daughter nine months later, in October 2010.
A source told US Star Magazine that the woman is “100 per cent sure” that Bieber is the father.
She said: “In my opinion, [the little girl] does look a lot like Justin did at the same age.”
A representative for Bieber told Gossip Cop website the paternity claim is “completely untrue”, with a source close to the star adding: “It’s just sad that anyone would bother with this bullshit.”
This is the second time Bieber has been hit by a paternity claim after fan Mariah Yeater attempted to sue the singer in 2011 over claims he had fathered her four-month-old son.
Bieber denied the claims and the case was dropped by Yeater’s lawyers after the singer agreed to take a paternity test. Bieber said at the time: “I guess [she’s done this] for attention.”
The star's latest paternity allegation comes just days after he was accused of driving recklessly at his gated community in Los Angeles.
Police are currently investigating a claim that the singer was driving at motorway speeds on a 25mph road. “We take this very seriously and if this actually did occur, which it appears that it did, it is unacceptable behaviour from anybody, anywhere, anytime,” a police spokesman said.
Bieber hit back at critics at the Billboard Music Awards last week for focusing too much on his off-stage antics and not enough on the “craft” of his music.
“This is not a gimmick, and I’m an artist, and I should be taken seriously. And all this other bull should not be spoken of,” he said.Reuse content
