The 'Mistletoe' star denies allegations that he fathered a child with a fan.

Justin Bieber has spoken for the first time in depth about a claim that he fathered a child with a fan.

Earlier this week, Maria Yeater, 20, filed a paternity suit against the 17-year-old singer, alleging that Justin was the father of her new born baby.

Justin has already sought to rubbish the reports on Twitter, but today again stressed that the claims were not true during an appearance on NBC's The Today Show.

"To set the record straight, none of it is true," he said.

"I know I'm going to be a target, but I'm never going to be a victim. It's crazy, because every night after the show I've gone right from the stage right to my car.

"So it's crazy that some people want to make up such false allegations."

Justin added that he had never met the woman who had made the allegations.

The claims come at the height of Justin's promotional duties for his new album 'Under The Mistletoe', which came out earlier this week.
