New York: Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber loves playing pranks over phone and recently called R&B star Akon pretending to be his illegitimate son.
The `Baby` hitmaker called the hip-hop singer after stealing his number from the phone of his manager Scooter, reported New York magazine.
"He was like, `Daddy, why don`t you love me?` It really scared Akon!" said Scooter.
The 16-year-old singer was later asked about his telephone tricks by a fan on Twitter and he admitted making prank calls to people is one of his favourite pastimes.
"R u Kidding of course I do!! I prank everyone!! No 1 is safe (sic)" he wrote.
Although Bieber is constantly surrounded by his management, bodyguards and publicist, he admitted he sometimes feels overwhelmed by the devotion he is shown by his fans.
"It`s definitely amazing to me that I have such amazing fans. But, like, at the same time, I mean. I`m claustrophobic, really bad. I don`t like to be closed in," said Bieber.
