I shall reserve the snarky comment about how one of Justin Bieber’s fellow musicians need not worry about this kind of problem. Justin Bieber is being sued for, allegedly, fathering a baby. Bieber, who is seventeen, is vehemently denying claims made by a twenty-year-old California woman that the singer fathered her newborn baby.
Bieber’s publicist said in a statement 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.”
The reports are that Mariah Yeater has claimed that she had unprotected sex with Bieber a year ago while backstage at one of the singer’s concerts. She got pregnant and gave birth three months ago. MTV is quoting Star Magazine as saying “in a hand-signed affidavit, sworn under the penalty of perjury, Yeater told a California court that Bieber propositioned her on October 25 of last year, when she was 19. The pair had a sexual tryst after his concert and backstage at L.A.’s Staples Center, it’s alleged in court papers.”
The affidavit also requests that the court compel Bieber to have a paternity test done in order to prove whether or not the child, who is named Tristran, is his and then to provide “reasonable child support, effective immediately.”
Bieber has confirmed that he is dating Selena Gomez, and has voiced his beliefs that homosexuality is a choice, and that he is opposed to casual sex. He told Rolling Stone magazine that “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them.” A court hearing is schedules for December. Bieber just released his first Christmas album called “under the Mistletoe.”
Now, here is The View on this whole sordid affair:
