Justin Bieber and his Belieber fans show that they are undeterred by one woman's claims that Bieber fathered her child, a three-month-old baby boy. Appearing Friday morning on the "Today Show," Bieber told Matt Lauer -- in between screams from fans -- that the allegations by the 20-year-old Mariah Yeater were flat-out false.
"I know I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim. It's crazy, every night after the show I've gone right from the stage right to my car, so it's crazy some people want to make up such false allegations. But to set the record straight, none of it is true," Bieber said, responding to Yeater's allegations that the baby was conceived while backstage at one of Bieber's concerts.
And in response to Matt Lauer's pointed question if he knew Yeater, Bieber answered: "Never met the woman."
Bieber, who otherwise appeared in good spirits, said he would be donating proceeds from his new album, "Under the Mistletoe," to charities -- including food banks. Growing up, Bieber and his family had benefited from food banks when the family was strapped for cash.
Justin Bieber will perform live on the "Today Show" on November 23rd.
