Mariah Yeater Drops Paternity Suit Against Justin Bieber

By: Mike Hess / November 16, 2011

The paternity case that Mariah Yeater alleged against pop superstar Justin Bieber has been quietly dropped — and now it’s Yeater that might be facing a lawsuit.

TMZ  reports that Yeater last week secretly dismissed her lawsuit claiming that Bieber fathered a child with her, and that the lawyers she hired to be associated with the case have also fled. Further, Bieber is considering suing her for what they always said were false claims.

During a Today show appearance in early November, Bieber entirely dismissed the allegations made by Yeater. 

“I’d just like to say basically that none of those allegations are true,” Bieber told Matt Lauer. “I know I’m going to be a target, but I’m never going to be a victim.”

The Today host pushed further, asking if he’d ever met the young woman. Biebs responded:

“Never met the woman… It’s crazy. Every night after the show I’ve gone right from the stage right to the car, so it’s crazy that some people want to make such false allegations.”

Upon the initial case being filed, Biebs called the lawsuit “sad,” telling People.com:

“It’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claims. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”
