Is Justin Bieber a father?

Justin Bieber's legal team is denying that he fathered a child with a 20-year-old fan.

The Californian woman, Mariah Yeater, is reported to have filed a lawsuit against the Biebster, alleging that he is the father of her three-month-old baby.

Yeater claims that she had sex with the teen singing sensation backstage after a concert in Los Angeles.

Her lawsuit apparently goes into graphic detail about the tryst, demands a paternity test and seeks child support.

Bieber would have been 16 at the time, meaning that if the woman's claims were true, she would be guilty of statutory rape under Californian law.

Bieber's representatives said: "While we haven't yet seen the lawsuit, it's sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations."

The singer is a Christian and has spoken out against casual sex, telling Rolling Stone: "I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them."

He has been dating Disney actress Selena Gomez for almost a year.
