Mariah Yeater Says Baby Will Take DNA Test; Bieber References ‘A Weasel’
Now that Justin Bieber has taken a DNA test to hopefully squash allegations from Mariah Yeater that he fathered her 4-month-old son, Yeater’s camp is saying that her son Tristynn will indeed take a test as well despite nearly a week of silence since Bieber’s submission.
Yeater’s lawyers tell TMZ that the 19-year-old will submit her son for testing, hoping to prove her claims that Bieber is his biological father. The lawyers also say that someone from their team should have been present when DNA samples were taken from Bieber so that they could ensure the accuracy and reliability of the tests.
While making an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman this week, Bieber vented a bit about the Yeater drama, telling Letterman: “I could smell a weasel. People make up false accusations … I am 17, but it is going to happen.”
From the beginning, Bieber has insisted that he is not the father of Yeater’s baby, and has made several public statements stating his case. During an interview on Today, Bieber took a stand, saying to Matt Lauer: “I’d just like to say basically that none of those allegations are true … 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.”
After Bieber took the DNA test, he quickly whisked himself west to Los Angeles, where on Sunday night he got all dressed up with girlfriend Selena Gomez and hit the American Music Awards in style.
