Justin Bieber wants media to stop drawing attention to Mariah Yeater.
Mariah Yeater hit the headlines earlier this month after sensationally claiming Justin had impregnated her during a backstage romp for 30-seconds at one of his concerts in Staples Center, Los Angeles last year, Daily star reported.
Justin voluntarily took a DNA test on Friday, November 18 in a bid to put an end to the scandal and he wants the media to stop giving Yeater the spotlight.
“I didn’t have to do it (DNA test), I did it because I wanted to, I just wanted everything to be out in the open and be like, Listen, there’s no reason for this to even be a discussion. It shouldn’t even be a discussion. If I have to take it, if I don’t have to take it, I’m gonna take it just because, it just made sense,” he told the VIEW.
“I don’t even know if she’s gonna take it or not, I don’t even know… I’m not even paying attention. I think we`re bring too much attention to this girl who just wanted, you know, (fame),” he added.
Mariah Yeater desperately wants a DNA test – just not the one Justin Bieber took last week, her lawyer claimed on Nov 23rd, reports NYdailynews.com
Mariah’s lawyer Jeffery Leving said …Mariah deserves the right to meet Justin with her baby and lawyers present and watch while he gets his cheek swabbed for DNA testing, he said.
“I want a new DNA test with both sides together at a lab in California as soon as possible,” Leving told the Daily News. “As soon as I tell her to do it, she’ll do it. We need proper protocol and a chain of custody.”
Leving said reps for Justin Bieber made a unilateral decision when they sent Justin for a test at a New Jersey laboratory last Friday.
“For me to feel comfortable, I want a member of my legal team in the room when Justin Bieber’s genetic fluid is sampled,” he said. “This case is unique in terms of media interest, celebrity and the amount of potential child support at issue. There could be motives on the parts of many different people to corrupt the evidence.”
In response to Mariah Yeater’s text messages, Leving believes text message attributed to Yeater that name another man “Robbie” as the possible baby-daddy were “spoofed.”
Bieber’s team told the media that Yeater is a fraud who’s trying to extend her 15 minutes of fame by drawing out the DNA test as long as possible.
Justin Bieber took a DNA test on Friday in New Jersey to disprove Mariah Yeater’s claims that he’s the daddy of her son, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
According to TMZ, Justin took the test at a lab under “very controlled circumstances.” Now it’s Yeater’s turn to provide a DNA sample from her son Tristyn to see whether Justin’s DNA matches up.
Last week, Scooter Braun, told Extra that Bieber was “ready to take a paternity test, at any moment.”
The announcement was a surprise, since Bieber is not obligated to take the test. Yeater, 20, had claimed that she had sex with Bieber backstage at an L.A. concert in October 2010, but she dropped her paternity suit earlier this month.
Although we already know Justin isn’t the baby daddy, we cant wait to hear the result!!
Justin Bieber have a doctor’s appointment visit on Friday — to take a DNA test disproving he’s the father of Mariah Yeater’s son Tristyn, 4 months.
“He’s ready to take a paternity test, at any moment. We have one scheduled for tomorrow,” Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, told Extra host Maria Menounos at Thursday’s Pencils of Promise charity event in L.A. Watch the interview.
The announcement is a surprise, since Justin is not obligated to take the test. Yeater had claimed that she had 30-seconds quick sex with Bieber backstage at an L.A. concert in October 2010, but she dropped her much-scrutinzed paternity suit last week.
Scooter explained that Justin “doesn’t mind” taking the DNA test. “He’s like ‘I’m just going to go ahead of it and be fine. It doesn’t matter.”
Bieber team is still considering legal action against Yeater, Braun hinted. “We’ve never even seen the lawsuit, but we’re going to just get ahead of this thing and go right after it. I think it’s important to hold people accountable for their actions. We don’t want it to seem like its okay for everyone to say, like, ‘I had Justin’s baby or having his baby.’”
