From a suspected DUI-related arrest to the revelation of his shocking racist remarks, Justin Bieber has been at the center of several scandals in the past year, but according to a new report, his most shocking one to date might still be partially under wraps.
In the June 30 issue of In Touch Weekly, the magazine accuses the 20-year-old “Baby” singer of impregnating three women since 2010, including his off-again, currently on-again girlfriend singer/actress Selena Gomez.
Last month, In Touch reported that Bieber and Gomez, now 21, were preparing to welcome a baby in 2012 when the pop singer was 17. While Gomez’s rep denied the rumors, the tabloid claims that Gomez suffered a miscarriage two months into the pregnancy after Bieber shared his fears that keeping the child could ruin his heartthrob status. “He was in no way ready to have a child,” said a source.
Following In Touch's first baby bombshell, the magazine is now claiming that Bieber is responsible for getting two other women pregnant since 2010. “It’s horrible,” said one source “familiar with the situation," adding, “He’s such a mess.”
How did Bieber keep the supposed baby news secret, and just who are these two other mystery women? The world may never know. “Justin’s pop-idol persona is well-guarded by a Hollywood machine. Finely tuned to keep his problems private for years, if not forever,” reported the magazine.
While Bieber has never admitted any rumored parental status, an insider told the tabloid that the two women were reportedly “taken care of” after revealing to the "Never Say Never" performer that they were with child. “Woman who say Justin has gotten them pregnant are investigated and if claims have merit, are ‘taken care of financially’ without ever coming in contact with Justin again,” reads the report.
Bieber’s rep offered no comment when questioned about the alleged pregnancies.
Bieber was previously accused of fathering a child with Mariah Yeater in 2011. The California woman, then 20, who claimed the duo had sexual relations backstage at one of Bieber’s concerts in October 2010, had her paternity suit thrown out of court in 2011.
Following Yeater’s suit, Star Magazine reported that Bieber had also fathered an unidentified, 25-year-old woman’s child in 2010 when he was just 15. While sources close to Bieber denied the claims, sources close to the woman alleged that she was impregnated by Bieber after meeting in Miami following one of his concert appearances.
