His rep has called the paternity claims “malicious,” but Justin Bieber himself (who tweeted about the rumor earlier this week) is making sure his fans know the “Baby” singer does not have a baby. In front of hundreds of screaming fans, Bieber told Matt Lauer, Ann Curry, and Al Roker that Mariah Yeater’s claims that Bieber fathered her 3-month-old son are indeed false. “None of those allegations are true,” as fans behind him screeched in support. “I know I’m going to be a target, but I’m never going to be a victim.”
Bieber says not only has he never met Yeater, but his schedule doesn’t even permit him to sneak away with a fan. “It’s crazy, because every night after the show, I’m gone right from the stage right to my car, so it’s crazy that some people want to make up such false allegations,” he said. “But set the record straight: None of it is true.”
Bieber also talked to Today‘s host about his charitable efforts, but, interestingly enough, his fans appeared far more into supporting him amongst controversy than applauding his do-good attitude. Clip after the jump!
