Baby Daddy? Just Bieber Sued in Paternity Lawsuit … Baby, Baby, Oh … Baby (UPDATE: If True, Statutory Rape?)
Baby, baby, oh baby …
Pop star Justin Bieber is being sued by a 20 year old woman who claims that he is the father of her baby. According to Radar on Line, Mariah Yeater, a 20 year old California woman has filed a lawsuit against Bieber and is demanding he take a paternity test. Yeater claims that she and the 17 year old Bieber had sex back stage at an LA concert three months ago.
A 20-year-old California woman has filed a bombshell lawsuit against teen pop icon Justin Bieber alleging he is the father of her three-month-old baby boy, Star magazine is exclusively reporting in its new issue.
Mariah Yeater is demanding the singer take a paternity test “to scientifically confirm” he is the father of the child, according to court papers obtained by Star.
Justin Bieber’s reps deny the charges.
Bieber’s reps have strenuously denied the accusations but a court hearing has been set for later this year. In a statement to RadarOnline.com, Bieber’s said: “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.”
UPDATE I: Police may investigate Justin Bieber sexual tryst. Bieber was 16 at the time and the woman making the charges was 19. Isn’t this statutory rape?
California law states anyone who has unlawful sex with a minor and not more than three years older is guilty of a misdemeanor, which carries up to a one-year jail sentence.
“The issue of statutory rape even if she’s guilty, hypothetically, that has no bearing on the duties to provide child support,” said one of Yeater’s lawyers Matthew Pare. “It’s a totally separate issue.”
