Justin Bieber Is Right to Agree to Paternity Test


justin bieber picDenial is an ugly thing, but it's what Justin Bieber has become good at since 20-year-old Mariah Yeater claimed her baby boy is his, the result of a backstage tryst she says she had with the teen heartthrob. But now the Biebs, who insists he's never even met Yeater, has agreed to take a paternity test to clear the whole mess up.

Bieber, 17, will reportedly take the DNA test in two weeks when he comes back to the United States from Europe. He then plans to sue Yeater, who has already filed a paternity lawsuit seeking child support.

It's all such a sordid affair, but you know what? It's about time Bieber faces up to these allegations and does what's right. It's the only way he'll be able to put this matter to rest and move on. That is to say if the paternity test comes back negative, of course ...

If his DNA proves a match with that of Yeater's infant son Trystan, well, our seemingly innocent little Bieber has another thing coming. For starters, a career in ruins.

The thing is, the whole scandal is pretty dodgy on both sides, and it seems possible that neither Bieber nor Yeater is telling the whole truth. The details -- that Bieber met the woman backstage and acted nice until the two were alone before aggressively seducing her in a bathroom -- are pretty damning, especially considering the singer's squeaky clean image.

That said, Yeater herself seems pretty dodgy -- especially lately, with her ex-boyfriend's family coming forward to say she'd originally accused him of being the child's father and then got herself arrested for battery for slapping him during a fight over it. Now her lawyers are apparently turning up M.I.A. after the Bieber camp's announcement that they'd found a lab to take the DNA swabs.

It's entirely possible that some version of the encounter did take place. It's also possible that it never happened -- though that would be pretty risky of Yeater to take such strong action against such a public figure. If the two did hook up on some level, it's just as much a possibility that they either didn't have full-blown sex or that Bieber is not the baby's father.

No matter what, this drama will dog Bieber until it's resolved. So the best thing for him to do is face the music, succumb to the paternity test, and go on from there. It's the only way he can get himself out from under this dark, ugly cloud. It's brave of him to go through with it and do what he needs to do to clear his name.

Do you think Justin Bieber should take a DNA test? Do you think he's the father of Mariah Yeater's baby?

I find it really hilarious that so many people are so adamant that this girl is crazy. I'm not saying I believe her, but I'm not so star struck or naive enough to think completely discount that it might be true. He wouldn't be the first teenage boy to use bad judgement when it comes to sex. I'm also a little suspicious since it took so long for him to decide to do that instead of him saying he's going to "ignore" it.

good for him for stepping up and doing the DNA Test....

It's easy to "jump all over the girl" because she's accusing/battering etc. others.  If she was a stand-up girl she would have just had her lawyer call his lawyer and done it in peace/quiet but NOPE she wanted the attention.  Notice she is MIA now?

@starlight, according to the article I read she did try to contact him and never got a response.

It's sad that he has to defend himself and honestly I would probably fight the paternity suit just on principal even if I knew with 100% certainty I couldn't be the father (I'm a women so it's a moot point)

I do think his best bet is to go ahead and take it and get it over with and I think she's lying.  I'm not putting her down at all but look at her. Justin can have almost any girl why would he chose her?  Most people have a 'prefrence' and you can see similarities between the people they've dated in the past and the people they are dating now.  Does Selena look anything like that other lady?  I believe him when he says he never met her

It is all a sham to once again prove that Justin is a boy/man when she is actually a she.  We are all being fooled as this and always has been a chick.  One day soon the real deal will come out.

The odds are 50/50. But I doubt he is the father.

It strikes me as funny that you are applauding him for doing something a judge will require anyway. It's not like he can make this go away without the test. If the court case proceeds, any judge will require a paternity test.
