Usher plays down Justin Bieber 'baby' claim

Justin Bieber's mentor Usher has played down the teenager's recent 'baby' drama, insisting: "It comes with the territory."

The 17-year-old singer hit headlines earlier this month (Nov11) after Mariah Yeater, 20, sensationally claimed he's the father of her son, Tristyn.


Yeater has since dropped a paternity lawsuit and Bieber has voluntarily undergone a DNA test to put an end to the scandal - but R+B star Usher seems unconcerned, insisting being the subject of false allegations is a by-product of fame.


He tells TMZ.com, "It comes with the territory, man."


Asked if he had ever faced similar accusations from fame-hungry females, he replied, "Not too much."
