Justin Bieber will take a paternity test to put Mariah Yeater’s claims to rest that he is the father of her 3-month-old son, sources tell Us Weekly.
“Justin’s team chose to proactively make arrangements for him to take a DNA test to put this to rest when he gets back from Europe,” a source close to Justin Bieber told US Weekly.
Mariah Yeater, who alleges that she met Justin Bieber and had an unprotected sexual encounter with the singer after a Los Angeles concert last October, is sticking to her story that he is the father of her child despite repeated death threats. Mariah Yeater has gone public with photos of her son, and will appear on Inside Edition tonight for her first television interview since the news broke.
Justin Bieber told NBC’s Matt Lauer on the Today Show Friday that he has in fact “never met the woman” and that “none of those allegations are true. Justin Bieber’s reps issued a much firmer denial, saying that Yeater’s claims are “malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims.” If Mariah Yeater’s claims are true, she could also face statutory rape charges.
Justin Bieber has also had to fight off recent speculation that his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, broke up with him after hearing the news. However, he’s hoping that his appearance with her at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Sunday put those rumors to rest.
