As reported earlier this week, Justin Bieber was slammed with a paternity suit after Mariah Yeater made accusations that he's the father of her three-month-old baby boy. Bieber has tried to ignore the situation but after days of media speculation, he finally addressed the issue on the Today show this morning and assured Matt Lauer that there's absolutely no truth to the girl's claims. He said, ""I'd just like to say basically that none of those allegations are true. I know that I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim."" He went on to explain, ""It's crazy, every night after the show I've gone right from the stage right to my car, so it's crazy that some people want to make up such false allegations. To set the record straight, none of it is true.""

Lauer pressed the pop sensation even further by asking Bieber directly, ""Do you know this woman? Her name is Mariah Yeater?,"" to which he immediately replied, ""Never met the woman."" There was no mention as to whether or not Bieber would be submitting to a DNA test in order to prove Yeater's claims are false, but if you ask me, it may be the fastest way to clear up all this. Many loyal fans are willing to believe their teen icon is telling the truth based on just his word alone, but others want to see some solid evidence concerning the baby-daddy matter. So you just have to ask yourself -- Are you a Belieber?
