Could Justin Bieber pay to have a DNA test show that he’s not the father of Mariah Yeater’s son?
The pop superstar has agreed to a paternity test when he returns to the U.S., but members of his accuser’s legal team are hoping that everything is “carefully supervised,” appearing on The Dr. Drew Show to argue that “justice is not a luxury for the rich.”
Chicago-based attorney Jeffery Leving, who’s known for his work as an activist for fathers’ rights, revealed that while his client’s case has gained a lot of momentum in the media, and will eventually be heard before a judge on December 15, Yeater wanted to settle the matter outside of court, but Bieber’s lawyers never returned their calls.
With her own past now coming into question and Justin reportedly preparing to sue Mariah for making false allegations against him, Leving also noted that at age 20, Yeater is still “a child herself,” and that she “probably doesn’t even know what to do right now, aside from caring for her child.”
The young mother claims that she and Justin had a brief sexual encounter in a backstage bathroom at the Staples Center in October of 2010, and she later discovered that she was pregnant. Her son, Tristyn, was born on July 6.
Yeater and her family members insist that Bieber is the father of her child, and are seeking financial support, but Justin denies that he ever met her.
