Triumphant Justin Bieber puts paternity claim to rest

Monday November 7, 2011

Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber put his paternity scandal to one side as he won two gongs at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Belfast.

The Baby singer is embroiled in claims that he fathered a secret love child during a brief backstage tryst with fan Mariah Yeater, 20.

But his troubles seemed to be the last thing on his mind as he struck cheery, boyish poses on the red carpet before storming on to win awards for Best Pop and Best Male.

The double triumph comes after Justin has been forced to defend himself in the wake of the allegations.

He told The Today Show that he had "never met the woman" and set out to clear his name.

"To set the record straight, none of it is true." he said

"Every night after the show I'm gone right from the stage right to the car."

Meanwhile, Justin's sweetheart, Disney star Selena Gomez, was also at the awards.

The couple were spotted making a dash from their car, but declined to pose together for photographers.

Other starts in attendance were Katy Perry, Jessie J and Lady Gaga who stole the show with four awards and an electric sci-fi performance.
