Justin Bieber takes paternity test to prove he's not the father of Mariah ... - New York Daily News

<div readability="107.161473088"> <p class="DNTEXT"> Justin Bieber wants to put all the baby-daddy drama to rest with a simple test.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> The pop music dreamboy had a wild start to his night Friday — a pop-in at a New Jersey lab to provide a DNA sample under "very controlled circumstances," reported.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> The 17-year-old Canadian crooner has vowed to his fans — known as Beliebers — that science will prove he's not the pop of a boy born last July to a woman named Mariah Yeater, who claims the hearthrob knocked her up during a Staples Center quickie.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> Yeater, 20, an unemployed single mom living in San Diego, filed a paternity lawsuit against Bieber on Halloween, but quietly withdrew it two weeks ago as she started receiving death threats, her Chicago-based lawyer, Jeffery Leving, told the Daily News.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> Leving said he was trying to have a DNA test done on a confidential basis, but it was not clear whether the lawyer had any say in Bieber's choice of lab.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> "I originally wanted a judge to order a DNA test to make sure the test's chain of custody was safeguarded," Leving said last week.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> "But the reality is that that was before these death threats escalated. And they've gotten so out of control, maintaining strict confidentiality is something we have to try."</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> He reserved the right to re-file the case if the two sides can't broker a mutually acceptable test.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> "Arrangements were made for Justin to take the test," a Bieber source told The News, declining to comment about possible talks with Yeater's legal team.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> Bieber's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, told TMZ that incriminating text messages purportedly sent by Yeater to a friend help prove she made up the baby-daddy story to get a payday.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> The texts, obtained by TMZ, indicate that Yeater thought another man was the father of her baby immediately after the child was born.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> "Pleeease ERASE ALL MESSAGES from my mom where she says (the baby) is Robbies Son. Ill kick u when we get paid i'm trusting you pleeease," read one recent text.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> An Aug. 16 text to the same friend also identified "Robbie" as the father, TMZ also reported.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> "Would you please stress to Robbie how important it is for him to be in his son's life?" the text read, according to TMZ.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> "As we've said from the beginning, it's sad that someone would fabricate such a malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claim," Bieber's spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, said in a statement to The News.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> "We'll continue to consider all of our options to protect Justin."</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> Bieber didn't seem to be worried about the outcome of his paternity test as he glammed it up at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"> He strutted along the red carpet, with his hair slicked-back and wearing a velvet tuxedo, and stopped to peck girlfriend Selena Gomez on the cheek.</p> <p class="DNTEXT"></p> </div>
