Justin Bieber knows he's not the baby daddy and he's ready and willing to prove it!
The "Baby" singer will move forward with submitting a DNA test to settle claims that he is the father of Mariah Yeater's four-month-old son, who was allegedly conceived in a bathroom after one of Bieber's concerts.
In a recent radio interview with Elvis Duran, Biebs confessed:
- "As far as the whole 'baby' situation, it's unfortunate that it had to happen like that, you know, people make false accusations but things happen in this industry and you just have to keep your head high and be positive. If it was up to me, it would've been a better storyâ€”like Justin Bieber went off to South America with this 27-year-old supermodel. That would've been an awesome rumor."
While Yeater filed a motion to dismiss her paternity action on Nov. 9 after damming text messages came to light, Bieber's camp still wants to move forward with the paternity test.
The 17-year-old's publicist told E! News on Thursday that he will take the test to put the matter to rest, and hold "those involved with bringing this suit accountable for their actions."
The entertainer's attorney, Howard Weitzman, added:
- "Our independent investigation indicates Ms. Yeater never met Justin, she has consistently identified another man as the child's father, and Ms. Yeater and her co-conspirators hatched this scheme in order to extort money from him and to sell her story to the media. There have been no settlement discussions and there never will be."
Sounds like Yeater's story is starting to unravel!
Mariah's new attorney, Jeffrey Leving, expressed of his client's situation: "She has received many death threats. She received death threats by phone and thus changed her home phone number. So if we can accomplish this outside of the court system that would probably be the best."
