In what would be Maury Povich's most eagerly anticipated paternity test of all time, Justin Bieber has been invited to the "Maury" show to determine whether or not he fathered a baby boy when he was 16 years old.
"We are actively pursuing this story," a spokesperson for the show tells me.
Justin is fighting back, vowing to take a paternity test after adamantly declaring that he's not the father of a 20-year-old California woman's three-month-old son.
"I know I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim," Bieber told the "Today" show. Justin claims that he has never even met his accuser, Mariah Yeater, although court papers filed by Yeater last week claim they met backstage at an L.A. concert.
"This would be a huge TV event," Amy Rosenblum, former executive producer of "Maury," tells me. "When I brought the DNA test to TV for the first time on Maury, I had no idea it would still be as popular today as it was then. Maury is trusted by millions of viewers and if Maury told Justin 'You are not the father,' everyone would believe it."
