Justin BieberJustin Bieber will fight a new legal battle over the paternity of a baby boy after a California woman claimed that Bieber is the father of her three month old son.

According to Rolling Stone, Justin Bieber has denied allegations that he’s the father of a three month old baby boy after 20 year-old Mariah Yeater of California filed a lawsuit seeking child support. Yeater claims that she and Justin Bieber had sex backstage at a concert in Los Angeles which resulted in the pregnancy of the child in question.

A representative for Justin Bieber explained that the singer’s legal team will fight the allegations and do everything in their power to protect Bieber from the lawsuit, which they have yet to explore in detail.

In a statement to ABC News, Bieber’s publicist issued the following: “While we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit, it’s sad that someone would fabricate, malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”
