Justin Bieber, 17, has been slapped with a paternity lawsuit by a 20-year-old California woman who says she has fathered a baby boy courtesy of the teen heartthrob.

Mariah Yeater told Star magazine that she and Bieber had sex backstage at a concert when she was 19-years-old.

In court papers Yeater has requested that Bieber submit to a paternity test and she says if found to be the father of her child she wants Bieber to "provide adequate support for my baby." The court hearing is scheduled for later this year.

Bieber's reps say the allegation is 100% false.

In happier Bieber news the pop singer dropped the Christmas album Under the Mistletoe on Tuesday and it quickly climbed up the iTunes charts after Bieber fans rushed to purchase the album which was met with decent reviews.

As reported earlier today the Bieber Christmas album features some of the most notable vocal performers of the last several decades including Boys II Men, Mariah Carey and Usher.
