Can you Belieb it? Justin Bieber finally seems to be an adult rock star. A Belieber groupie from California has claimed to have given birth to a baby fathered by the star celeb teen himself. Mariah Yeater, now 20, says her 3-month-old baby was fathered by Justin Bieber backstage following a sold out concert he held in L.A. last year.
Mariah Yeater claims she was only 19-years-old when celebrity teen Justin Bieber picked her out of a sold out concert crowd (he would have been 16). She claims the green celebrity known for his charity benefit work helping residents of New Orleans affected by the oil spill and his pet-friendly work for PETA had members of his security offer her a chance to meet the star backstage.
Once behind the famous virtual firewall, she says Bieber came on to her and said he wanted to go somewhere private with her to make love.
*cough… ummm yeah… apparently, that’s what hip and trendy Gen Me rock stars call it when they want to bang groupies backstage these days while they are on tour*
The star celeb and his teams of security, lawyers, and others present with the star that night vehemently deny the woman’s claim. The news is shocking fans everywhere because one — he has been in a relationship with Disney princess Selena Gomez for quite some time and two — because, well… he’s the Biebs and most love him for his squeaky clean pop music star image.
Nevertheless, Yeater has gotten famous already because she filed a paternity lawsuit against Bieber and is seeking child support.
Under penalty of perjury if he denies the claim the two had romantic relations and he turns out to be the baby-daddy, the Biebs is having to fight back tooth and nail to protect not only his image but his finances as well.
What kind of brouhaha this whole “Biebs got some groupie pregnant” mess is likely to stir up is enough to keep tabloid writers busy for, well … at least a few days. But the Beliebers out there likely are certain the Biebs never would have been caught with his pants down as it were.
He’s just recently released Under the Mistletoe, his holiday album with some reworked classics, new collaborations, and more. And some of the proceeds from sales of that album (expected to be considerable) will be going to charity as Justin Bieber kicks off a Believe Charity Drive, encouraging fans also to donate directly to one of seven charities he’ll be supporting with proceeds. Not the kind of kid likely to be involved in such a scandal.
If the rumors that the Biebs has fathered a child are true, it puts the claimant in a peculiar position. She would be guilty of statutory rape. If the rumors are false, she risks going to prison for perjury. The jury is out and a court date is set for December. But Justin Bieber recently has been seen happy as ever with girlfriend Selena Gomez, and Bieber is a confessed Christian who has said sex is only for two people who love one another.
In the meantime, Justin Bieber has tweeted that he’s trying to avoid the drama and stick to the music. Good show. However, all the hard work and charity benefit work in the world won’t help him avoid negative press and paternity lawsuits if he fails to exercise discretion and keep it in his pants.
