Justin Bieber was none too happy about a fan's recent paternity suit, but he recognizes that those kinds of hassles are just part of being a worldwide celebrity.
"It's pretty crazy. People make up false accusations. It's gonna happen, being in the spotlight," Bieber, 17, said Tuesday on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman.
Letterman commiserated with Bieber, saying he "saw red" when he heard about the accusations, adding: "I could smell a weasel."

Some people count calories when they want to lose weight. Others turn to fad diets or start hitting the gym.
But for Jason Segel, who recently lost 30 lbs., it was his assistant – and a damning piece of photographic evidence – that did the trick.
"My lowest moment came [when] I shot a movie in New Orleans," the Bad Teacher and How I Met Your Mother star told David Letterman on the Late Show Thursday. "New Orleans is like, the best food and booze anywhere … I really took advantage of it."

Who bombed the worst at the Oscars?
Former hosts James Franco and David Letterman debate that very issue on Friday's Late Show on CBS.
"It was horrible," says Letterman, 63, of his 1995 appearance. "I was so bad that they talked for a while about shutting down the motion picture industry. … I was God awful."
But this year's host Franco, 32, argues that at least no one accused Letterman of being on drugs.

Selena Gomez still isn't spilling the beans about her relationship with Justin Bieber, but she has dropped another hint.
On his CBS show Wednesday night, David Letterman asks Gomez if he can show the audience a photo her affectionate outing with Bieber at Vanity Fair's Oscar party.
"Oh, that's cute," Gomez, 18, says as the Late Show audience lets out an "Awww!"

However, late Tuesday Lohan, 24, Tweeted a contradiction to the information: "I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion..."

More than a year after Joaquin Phoenix's awkward appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, the actor – clean-shaven and without sunglasses – returned to New York's Ed Sullivan Theater on Wednesday to apologize for his behavior.
"I mean, I think that you've interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person," he says about the now-infamous 2009 interview, in which a gum-chomping, mumbling Phoenix barely answered Letterman's questions. "I hope I didn't offend you in any way."

David Letterman's days of frolicking with interns are over – at least as far as one Connecticut university is concerned.
Quinnipiac University says it will tell staff in charge of placing interns to be extra careful when sending students to the studio to work for Letterman, 62, who is currently at the center of a blackmail scandal over his alleged affair with one of his former interns.
"Due to recent circumstances we will have a discussion with those in charge of placing our interns at the David Letterman show in the future," the Hamden, Conn., school tells TMZ. "We will diligently oversee this internship program to ensure that our interns are out of harm's way."
So far, there has been no comment from the Letterman camp.

A former Late Show with David Letterman staffer tells PEOPLE that the talk show host had a sexual relationship with one of the show's employees in the late 1990s.
The source says the relationship occurred before Stephanie Birkitt, 34, the woman at the center of the Letterman scandal, worked on the show and involved a different female staffer.
"I'm not surprised this came out," the former staffer tells PEOPLE of Letterman's admission Thursday night that he had "had sex with women who work for me on this show."
"Even the interns knew stuff like that was going on," says the source.
The former staffer says that Letterman, 62, carried on a sexual relationship with one of his "peers, a woman close to him, not an intern."

Former David Letterman assistant Stephanie Birkitt has emerged as the woman at the center of the shocking plot to extort $2 million from the Late Show host, but who exactly is she?
Birkitt, 34, until recently lived with Robert "Joe" Halderman, Letterman's alleged blackmailer and a 48 Hours producer, according to multiple news sources, but die-hard Letterman fans likely remember Birkitt as the amiable assistant who often appeared on camera in silly outfits, yukking it up with Dave, who anointed her with nicknames including Smitty and Monty.
When Halderman allegedly handed over a package of potentially embarrassing information to Letterman last month – and threatened to go public unless he received a multimillion dollar payment – it reportedly included copies of parts of a diary and personal correspondence belonging to his then-girlfriend, Stephanie Birkitt, according to a search warrant obtained by FOX 5 News.
