Teenage pop idol Justin Bieber has addressed rumours his mum was offered $50,000 (£33,300) to bare all for Playboy magazine, insisting the story made him feel ill.
Online reports suggested the Baby singer's mother, Pattie, was considering the offer - a rumour that was quickly shot down by the young star's representatives.
And now Bieber himself has taken to Twitter.com to tell fans he was disturbed by the Playboy fuss.
He writes, "That rumor just grossed and wrded me out (sic)... My mom is a moral woman. Let’s just leave that one for what it is."
And it isn't the only wild rumour Bieber is happy to correct - he hasn't been killed, despite reports to the contrary: "Turns out I'm alive."
