Justin Bieber has dismissed allegations and addressed the rumours about fathering a fan's child.

Appearing on American morning television show Today on Friday morning, Bieber set the record straight in an interview.

"I'd just like to say that basically none of those allegations are true and I know that I'm going to be a target but I'm never going to be a victim," said Bieber.

"It's crazy, because every night after the show I've gone right from the stage right to my car. So it's crazy that some people want to make up such false allegations," he explained.

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

When Today presenter Matt Lauer asked Bieber if he knew who Mariah Yeater, the woman behind the allegations, was, Bieber said he'd "never met the woman."

In the interview, Lauer suggested these allegations came about due to Bieber's celebrity status and "living life in the fast lane" and Bieber agreed.

Following his television appearance, Bieber sent a tweet to the Today show: "thanks for letting me set the record straight. what is real are my fans...this album...and this charity work."
