Washington: Justin Bieber’s legal team is said to be ready to strike down “malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false” allegations that the singer impregnated a 20-year-old woman.

Mariah Yeater from California filed a paternity lawsuit against the teen pop idol claiming that she has a 3-month-old son with the singer, with whom she had sex backstage at one of his Los Angeles shows last year.

“While we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit, it’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims,” TMZ quoted Bieber’s rep as saying.

“We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations,” the rep added.
