Justin Bieber has revealed that although proven false, Mariah Yeater's paternity claims almost meant the end of his music career.
In search of fame Mariah sensationally claimed that she and Justin slept together backstage at one of his concerts in 2011-- resulting in the birth of her son Tristyn.
Know Justin has spoken out about the claims, telling Fabulous magazine, "At the beginning of it all I was in Florida, away from my friends and family and I was pretty sad. I got to the point where I thought, 'I don't want to do this. I just want to be normal.' It was difficult because I'd never gone through anything like that."
But despite the trouble and heartache Mariah caused him, Justin still holds no grudge towards Yeater, adding: ''I feel sorry for her more than anything. Everything that hurts you makes you stronger in the end. You've got to learn from the bad things that happen.''
Though the paternity suit almost made him quit music -- Justin has now penned a song about the saga, which features on his album Believe -- which is released tomorrow!
