After Mariah Yater files paternity lawsuit against him, the 'Mistletoe' singer declares on his Twitter account that he's going to ignore the rumors and focus on the positives.
The first photo of Justin Bieber's alleged baby boy has been published. Gracing the newest cover of Star Magazine, it gives a look at sleeping Tristyn Anthony Markhouse Yeater and his mother, 20-year-old Mariah Yeater who recently filed a paternity lawsuit against the pop sensation.
Yeater filed the lawsuit against Bieber on October 31. In the court papers, she claimed to have sex with the "Baby" hitmaker in a bathroom at Los Angeles' Staples Center after his sold-out concert on October 25, 2010. She noted, "When I later realized I was pregnant with Justin Bieber's baby, I tried to contact him through his representatives but no one ever called me back."
"On July 6, 2011, I gave birth to a baby boy," the Californian woman added. "That was exactly 36 weeks and two days after the sexual encounter with Justin Bieber. Based upon the timing as well as the fact there were no other possible men that I had sex with that could be the father of this baby, I believe that Justin Bieber is in fact the father of my baby."
Representatives for Bieber have slammed Yeater's claims. "While we haven't yet seen the lawsuit, it's sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims," they said in a statement. "We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations."
17-year-old Bieber himself has chosen to ignore the allegations. "All the rumors...the gossip....I'm gonna focus on the positives....the music," he first tweeted, before posting hours later, "So I'm going to ignore the rumors...and focus on what is real. An opportunity to help by doing what i love. Judge me on the music!"
