Charleston, SC—As if the teen superstar didn’t have enough legal issues right now, a woman has filed a lawsuit claiming Justin Bieber is the father of her 11 month-old Beagle, and the singer owes her more than $250,000.00 in “canine support.”
The lawsuit claims that Renee Denofa, 19, met Bieber backstage after a concert he gave in Atlanta in March of this year, and that the two had “a brief but meaningful encounter that led them to engage in a mutual, consensual purchase of the dog. But Mr. Bieber has not upheld his part of the responsibility of dog ownership, and has not responded to e-mails or posts left on his Facebook fan page seeking support.”
Denofa’s attorney, Gabriel Duval, said his client has “photographs and other supporting documents to prove that Bieber is, in fact, the father of the puppy dog,” and she is only seeking what is “morally and ethically hers.”
Bieber’s representatives refused to comment on this latest legal problem. It is unclear if he will submit to any type of test proving positively whether he did or did not purchase the pooch in question.
But a source close to the Canadian heartthrob said this incident might just be the final nail in the coffin of his relationship with Disney star Selena Gomez.
“She puts up with a lot of whack jobs saying Justin’s done this or done that with them,” said the unnamed source close to the power couple. “Some chick just last month sent a letter to Justin saying that in June he promised her a small business loan at a modest rate of return for some sort of cupcake shop in Des Moines. She said he would give it to her with an interest rate of 5.75%! In this economy? That’s crazy! With a little homework she could easily get one for less than four per cent for the first five years and have the option of buying points on the back end later. Do your research, honey. I don’t know how Selena puts up with these nuts coming out of the woodworks!”
