A false claim stating Justin Bieber is dating 17-year-old singer-dancer Katherine Gazda is currently doing the rounds.

The "Dance Tonight" songstress, who trained as a ballet dancer at a Canadian school run by her director mother, dismissed the story in tweets blasted on her social feed on Sunday.

Britain's Daily Mirror - who previously gave us the 'Bieber is the reason Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom are divorcing' non-story - now claims Katherine and Justin became a couple after meeting via mutual rapper friend Blake Kelly in December 2013, and formed a serious relationship in less than a month.

With no physical evidence such as photographs of Katherine and one of the most intensely scrutinized celebrities in recent times, and dubious source quotes that sound like something put together in editorial, the UK outlet cited an 'insider' who claimed Bieber and Gazda even discussed the idea of having children together.

Clearly, quotes purporting to be Gazda's views on Bieber's present romantic status and legal woes are bogus.

Disturbingly, details in the Daily Mirror's story are either wrong or conveniently vague.

The newspaper writes, "Katherine posted a string of photographs of Bieber online on her ­Instagram page. They included images of the 'Baby' singer asleep."

The paper continued:

"She added the captions 'You're my angel, who forgot how to fly' and 'Some things last forever.' She deleted them after their latest row last week, but it is understood she hopes to patch things up with Bieber in Atlanta, Georgia, where he is currently in the studio."

No screenshots of the missing social media were provided by the Mirror to explain how they came across the alleged sweet nothings.

As for the Instagram picture of Bieber sleeping?

It was posted by the Canadian's partner in DUI, singer Khalil Sharieff, on December 31 from Toronto, Canada.

It was captioned, "Wake up sleepy head @justinbieber."

Gazda went on to affirm her denial of the Mirror's baseless story in two statements, both of which have since been deleted.

Such stories are part of what happens to superstars when they reach a certain saturation in the market place.

Media around them starts to eat itself, with the result that some outlets to lose sight of simple but important touchstones; facts and integrity.

The next time Bieber talks about "fake stories," rewind to today for a recap.

Meanwhile, the 19-year-old is currently spending time in Atlanta, Georgia, and posted an Instagram photo of himself captioned, "In the studio with T.I (sic)" using his new photo app handle "bizzle."

Justin Bieber And T.I

As we previously reported, Bieber is thought to have decamped to Atlanta for a month or so to record new music.

He was spotted out with new girlfriend du jour Chantel Jeffries - who rode shotgun with the singer before he was arrested in Miami Beach for an alleged DUI - at the Vanquish Lounge last Wednesday partying with rap royalty Sean Diddy Combs, Rick Ross, Jermaine Dupri, Wale, and the above mentioned T.I.

IQ contacted Gazda's management for a comment on the Bieber relationship claim.

We were told there is "no truth" to the story.
