Selena Gomez Did Not Dump Justin Bieber, Rep Insists
UPDATE: According to Us Weekly, the young couple is still going strong; a rep for the actress/singer tells the magazine that Gomez and the embattled Bieber have not broken up.
PREVIOUSLY: Selena Gomez has broken up with boyfriend Justin Bieber following allegations by Mariah Yeater that he is the father to her infant child, Radar Online reports.
Gomez, 19, is said to have broken the news to Bieber, 17, in the past 24 hours, as he fights off rumors that he slept with Yeater backstage after a concert and fathered her son. Bieber has denied the allegations; the teen pop sensation appeared on the Today Show on Friday and claimed that has "never met that woman."
"I know I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim," he said on the show. "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."
Sources told Radar that Bieber's management is begging Gomez to stay with the Canadian singer, as a breakup could be seen as an admission that he is indeed the father to the child. It came out late Friday afternoon that Yeater had previously accused an ex-boyfriend of fathering the child, before bringing the allegations on Bieber.
Bieber and Gomez denied dating for months, though they've been publicly affectionate for quite some time. In late October, they adopted a puppy together.
