Apparently everyone’s favorite Justin Bieber is having difficult times, as he is facing a lawsuit that shocked the public. The 17-year-old heartthrob is rumored to have conceived love child with one of his fans, 20-year-old Mariah Yeater, who has already filed the paternity lawsuit against Bieber. The woman, who claims that Justin is the father of a 4-month-old baby, obviously seeks child support and a paternity test, yet Justin keeps on stating that he has never met the girl.
Justin Bieber denied the allegations on his Twitter account and refused to make any public statements on this issue until this Friday he was seen on “Today” show, where he told host Matt Lauer that: “I know I’m going to be a target, but I’m never going to be a victim. Every night after the show I’m gone right from the stage right to the car, so it’s crazy that some people want to make such false allegations. To set the record straight, none of it is true.”
Mariah Yeater claims that she was 19, when she had unprotected intercourse with Bieber backstage post one of his concerts, in Los Angeles. She states that she was sitting near the stage, when after the concert a security guard came up to her and asked her if she wanted to meet Justin. She stated that: “Immediately, it was obvious that we were mutually attracted to one another, and we began to kiss. Shortly thereafter, Justin Bieber suggested that I go with him to a private place where we could be alone. I agreed to go with him and on the walk to a private area, he told me he wanted to make love to me and this was going to be his first time. He also said he would give me his phone number after we had sex and told me he wanted me to be at his future concerts too and he would give me backstage passes.”
As Mariah puts it, immediately after she found out she was pregnant, she tried to contact Justin for several times, but her efforts were in vain, as he never called back. Justin Bieber’s publicist also addressed the issue that has caused a stir among Bieber fans and stated that: “While we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit, 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.”
It seems that Ms. Yeates isn’t only confronted by the media, but will also have to deal with the police as the laws in California state that having unlawful sex with a person who is under the age of 18 (Justin was 16 then) and is not more than three years older than that person, qualifies as a misdemeanor and could face a jail sentence.
A hearing has been set for December 15, so time will tell which one of the two parties is telling the truth! One thing is however for sure: Selena Gomez wouldn’t definitely be glad about this lawsuit against her beau. They have been dating since December 2010, and seem to be quite happy with each other. Moreover, they adopted a puppy named Baylor together a couple of days ago.
