Inspired or not by MTV’s reality show that encourages minors to become parents, the 17-year-old star Justin Bieber could be a father. The singer could have a four-month-old baby not with his girlfriend Selena Gomez but with a girl three years older than him. Mariah Yeater accused the teen sensation to be the father of her child and not wanting to take responsibility for it. Of course, Bieber denied the claim. “I think it’s crazy because every night after the show, I’ve gone right from the stage right to my car,” Bieber explained on the “Today” show while promoting his just-released Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe. “So it’s crazy that some people want to make up some false allegations, but to set the record straight, none of it is true. Never met the woman. I’d just like to say, basically, that none of those allegations are true.”
Cobra Starship frontman Gabe Saporta, Bieber’s onetime tourmate, confirmed that Bieber couldn’t have had an affair with that girl: “It wouldn’t even be possible for her to get backstage. The security is so crazy there, you can’t get backstage. And even if you got backstage, first of all, he leaves the show as soon as he’s offstage, which is pretty cool. He runs offstage, gets in a car and jets, because the whole city turns into chaos.”
And in order to prove that he is innocent he accepted to take a paternity test as soon as he returns from a European promotional jaunt. This means that in two weeks, he will take a paternity test to prove that he did not father a child with a fan who has claimed the pair had a backstage affair.
Bieber’s spokesperson, Matthew Hiltzik, confirmed for the press that the test has been scheduled: “I can confirm that the team has proactively made arrangements for Justin to be tested upon his return and we’re going to hold everyone who is involved responsible.” Thus, if the test proves Bieber is not the father of that child, his team of lawyers will take legal action. “It’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims,” Hiltzik said in a statement. “We’ll vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to protect Justin and to hold those involved with bringing this suit accountable for their actions.”
Unfortunately, this ugly paternity scandal, which has rocked his previously squeaky-clean image, won’t pass too soon and this controversy could spark a statutory rape investigation by Los Angeles police because the woman was 19 years old at the time and Bieber was allegedly 16. So, is he a father or not? I guess will find the answer in two weeks.
