Justin Bieber Will Take DNA Test to Disprove Paternity Claim
Canadian teenage pop star Justin Bieber is set to debunk allegations made by a fan that he is the father of her baby. Bieber will be taking a DNA test to disprove the claim, and after his name is cleared, he will then file a case against his accuser.
The scandal broke when 20-year-old Mariah Yeater filed a lawsuit alleging that Bieber is the father of her three month-old son. She alleges further that her pregnancy was the result of a quick tryst between her and the pop star, which reportedly happened backstage after Bieber performed in Los Angeles in October 2010. He was 16 at the time.
The “Baby” singer has denied the allegations, and maintains that he has never even met Yeater. In an interview on NBC’s “Today”show, Bieber described the paternity accusations as “crazy.” He has since secured the services of crisis management guru Matthew Hiltzik of Hiltzik Strategies to take care of the situation.
Meanwhile, the New York Post reported that Yeater had initially told an ex-boyfriend that he was the father of the child.
Howard Weitzman, Bieber’s lawyer, has already chosen a lab where the DNA test will be conducted. Once the test results come in and it has been proven that Bieber is not the father, the Bieber camp will, in turn, sue Yeater.Tags: Justin Bieber child, Justin Bieber DNA test, Justin Bieber love child, Justin Bieber paternity, Justin Bieber paternity test, Justin Bieber teenage father
