It doesn't take much to get a rumour started these days and, if you are constantly in the public eye, all you have to do is be seen in public with a member of the opposite sex, for a dating rumour to start. Justin Bieber was recently seen out and about with 17-year-old British singer Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke and it was soon claimed that the two were dating. Now, Ella-Paige has taken to her official Twitter account to confirm that they are just friends.
She retweeted a friend who tweeted her saying, "so I just read a newspaper article about exactly what you think i'm talking about and it was so ridiculously untrue I actually reeled, are they just allowed to invent things? so and so and so and so have gone public/official. Well, no. what? no."
Meanwhile, another friend added, "WOAH just checked my lil sis @EllapaigeMusic mentions and it's ridiculous stories everywhere! Let my girl live dont believe everyting u read."
Ella-Paige then wrote, "they're not my friends those 'sources' were people I barley knew who wanted quick cash x. So looks like JB is still single ladies!"
The news that Justin Bieber was dating Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke spread like wildfire, once they had been spotted together and, not long after, Ella-Paige was receiving nasty Twitter messages from jealous fans. Now that it has been confirmed that Justin Bieber and Ella-Paige are just friends, maybe the Twitter abuse will stop.
