stopped by NBC's 'Today
' to promote his new Christmas album, 'Under the Mistletoe,' but he also took the opportunity to try and set the record straight regarding a very public paternity lawsuit
"I'd just like to say basically that none of those allegations are true," Bieber said. "I know that 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. To set the record straight, none of it is true."
Mariah Yeater has filed a paternity suit, claiming the 17-year-old singer is the father of her infant baby. Yeater alleges she and Bieber had sex in the bathroom of the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
'Today' anchor Matt Lauer pressed Bieber even further on Yeater's claims and asked if he knows the young woman.

was rocking some sweet Justin Bieber
hair when he took to the stage on 'Late Night

20-year-old Mariah Yeater has filed a lawsuit against Bieber
claiming that when she was 19 and he was 16, the two hooked up backstage after a concert, and he's the father of her 3 month old baby. Bieber is denying it, but Yeater says she has "credible evidence" -- but in this modern era does it even matter?
Oftentimes, the simple accusation is enough to ruin a career, which is why Bieber should be thankful Fallon was singing "It's not my baby, baby, baby, no!"
At least now he's guaranteed at least one version of the story that says he's innocent, and it's pretty catchy, too!
We've got a sneak peek at a diva-licious 'Glee
' number today -- the show's 300th performance -- and can share some spoilery details with you here, if you're curious.
And 'Glee' fans, I know you're curious.
Take a peek after the jump to see what Mercedes, Santana and another soon-to-be-ex-New Directions member are up to for the big number, which we won't see until the Nov. 15 episode...
Last week's 'I Am Unicorn
' was setting up for something big -- and 'Glee
' totally delivered. While it's not my favorite episode ever, it definitely seems to echo the glory days of Season 1.
But what made 'Asian F' so great? Three things: A Mike Chang storyline (FINALLY!), more screen time for Mercedes and actual character development (... FINALLY!). I know there are still a few naysayers that have "sworn off 'Glee' forever," but this might seriously turn into the show's best season yet. However, only time will tell if Ryan Murphy & Co. can keep the momentum going.
We come to find out that McKinley High isn't just a school where everyone sings, dances and slushies each other -- it's actually a legit learning facility. Who knew? Well, apparently Mr. Chang did because he seemed all sorts of unhappy when Mike received an A- (aka an 'Asian F') in chemistry class. So he gives his son an ultimatum: get an A, quit 'Glee' or break up with Tina.
OK, judging by some of your comments from the premiere recap, I get the feeling that no one really believes in 'Glee
' anymore, and I totally get it. Season 2 was too uneven and had way too many over-the-top quest stars and musical numbers and not enough plot.
Yet, I was hopeful for Season 3 because, believe it or not, I actually care about these kids.
I want to see Rachel make it to Broadway and Kurt follow his dreams to New York -- and I really want to see Brittany graduate high school (what grade is she in exactly?!).
As much as I applauded 'Glee''s Season 3 premiere for getting back to its basics, this week's 'I Am Unicorn' felt a little flat, like Ryan Murphy was building up to something, only to have it be revealed in episode 3. And I'm okay with that because I like the direction this season is going.
Gleeks, rejoice! The new season of 'Glee
' is finally upon us, and it looks like co-creator Ryan Murphy has learned from his past mistakes because the show's Season 3 premiere brought us back to the basics -- underdogs, show tunes and Sue Sylvester.
That's right, unlike Season 2, Sue is back in fighting form, and she's not only taking on the McKinley High glee club, but she also has her sights set on destroying every single glee club, everywhere.
But that's not the only thing that's changed. Mercedes has got herself a new man, Quinn has a new 'do (and a nasty attitude to go along with it) and Rachel and Kurt are suddenly BFFs after their breakfast at Tiffany's.
Yet, even after a summer of changes, the glee club still remains at the bottom of the social ladder. Some things never change.
