London: Singer Selena Gomez says it wasn`t easy to deal with claims that her boyfriend, Justin Bieber, had fathered a child with another woman.

Gomez was asked on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" if she`s doing fine since the allegations emerged, reports.

"I have been, yeah. It`s not easy to deal with," replied the 19-year-old.

Californian Mariah Yeater, 20, has filed legal papers stating she had sex with Bieber, 17, Oct 25 last year, following the singer`s performance at Los Angeles` Staples Center.

Yeater gave birth to a baby boy July 6, and she has claimed the "Baby" hitmaker is the father of the child.
