(Newser) – The Biebs recently said he wants to be a dad, and that might already be the case. A woman who boasts of a backstage quickie with Justin Bieber has filed a paternity suit against the singer. Californian Mariah Yeater, 20, claims that she and Bieber, then a jailbait 16, had sex at the LA Staples Center after one of his concerts a year ago when she was 19. It was a "brief" coupling, Bieber's first time, and he refused to wear a condom, Yeater said in an affidavit. She now has a three-month-old baby boy, and is asking a court to order Bieber to take a paternity test and financially support her son, reports the New York Post.

Bieber's legal team is attacking the claim. "While we haven't yet seen the lawsuit, it's sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims," a representative told TMZ. "We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations." (Click for 5 unfortunate things that could happen to Bieber if the claims are true.)
