Justin Bieber Takes Paternity Test
Justin Bieber took a DNA test on Friday in New Jersey, intending to disprove a claim that he is the father of a 3-month-old boy. The singer, who was not obligated to take the test, took it anyway because, according to his manager, Scooter Braun, "He's like, 'I'm just going to go ahead of it and be fine.'"
Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old woman who has accused Bieber of fathering her child, must now provide a DNA sample from her son to prove whether or not the 17-year-old pop star is in fact the boy's father. The current status of Yeater's lawsuit against Bieber is unclear. Yeater has switched attorneys in California, her paternity lawyer, Jeffrey Leving, told WGN in Chicago, who says he will not allow her to speak to the press.
