Teen star Selena Gomez is standing by Justin Bieber during his paternity drama, and quite literally.
The 19-year-old singer/actress, who has been romanced with a Staples Center date by the 17-year-old, was seen with Biebs while in Belfast over the weekend. Gomez was scheduled to host the MTV Europe Music Awards, and Bieber was scheduled to perform.
On Friday, it was rumored that Gomez had parted ways with the (It's Not My) "Baby" singer. (Sorry, we couldn't help it. Blame Jimmy Fallon.)
However, a rep for Gomez told Access Hollywood that the two lovebirds haven't broken up (perhaps to the chagrin of millions of Bielebers).
Biebs was hit with the suit last week, and has steadily denied the allegation that he fathered an infant with a California woman named Mariah Yeater.
Yeater, 20, claims that she and Bieber procreated after a tryst backstage at his L.A. concert last October. Bieber's team initially called the reports malicious and false, and the 17-year-old star spoke on it himself during the "Today" show Friday.
"None of those allegations are true," Bieber said at the time, adding that he'd never met Yeater. "I know I'm going to be a target, but I'm not going to be a victim."
TMZ is reporting that Bieber is planning to take a paternity test when he returns from Europe in two weeks, and will then sue Yeater for her claims, but his camp stayed mum on the report, only reiterating the prior statement that Yeater's allegations are false.
