Justin Bieber’s Paternity Suit Reportedly Dropped

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old Justin Bieber fan who had alleged the 17-year-old pop star had impregnated her after a concert, has dropped her suit, PEOPLE.com reports:

The case was set to go to court Dec. 15, and Bieber, 17, was prepared to take a paternity test to prove he was not the father of Yeater’s 3-month-old baby.

Yeater, who was seeking financial support, may have also faced statutory rape charges. (In the state of California, the age of consent is 18, and Bieber would have been 16 at that time of the alleged sexual encounter, according to Yeater’s accusation.)

“It’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims,” a rep for Bieber previously told PEOPLE in a statement. “We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”

Justin Bieber to Take Paternity Test, Sue Accuser

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Seventeen-year-old pop star Justin Bieber has reportedly agreed to take a paternity test to put to rest rumors that he is the father of a 20-year-old fan’s baby.  The Huffington Post reports that Bieber has said he plans to sue his accuser after the test comes back negative:

According to reports from TMZ, Justin Bieber will take a DNA to prove he’s not the father of Mariah Yeater’s baby.

The 17-year-old popstar is currently in Europe but when he returns to the U.S. in two weeks he hopes to finally end this whole mess. TMZ also reports that Bieber isn’t planning to let Yeater’s accusations go unpunished, and plans on taking her to court.

And that’s not a bad idea — if Bieber is in fact not the father, pursing legal action against Yeater would likely deter anyone else from making false accusation in the future.

According to the website, Bieber’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman, contacted Yeater’s lawyers on Friday to inform them that a paternity test will happen, and that they’ve already found a test lab.

Yeater filed a paternity suit against Bieber on November 1, claiming she met him backstage at one of his concerts in Los Angeles.
