Justin Bieber Paternity Case Continues to Crumble

Ah, the texting gods strike again! Mariah Yeater, who claims to have had a child with Justin Bieber, has been caught texting that an ex-boyfriend is the actual father.


TMZ reports Yeater sent a text to a friend, saying "ERASE ALL MESSAGES from my mom where she says baby Tristyn was fathered by Robbie," the ex-boyfriend.

Yeater also wrote she'll give the friend a share of the payoff. "Ill kick u when we get paid."

In another text to the same friend, Mariah writes, "Would you please stress to Robbie how important it is for him to be in his son's life?"

This person, whose name is being withheld, told TMZ he has also shared these texts with Howard Weitzman, Bieber's lawyer.

Has Mariah Yeater Dropped Paternity Suit Against Bieber?

Weitzman said, "This information proves Mariah Yeater fabricated the story. Our independent investigation indicates Ms. Yeater never met Justin, she has consistently identified another man as the child's father, and Ms. Yeater and her co-conspirators hatched this scheme in order to extort money from him and to sell her story to the media."

Weitzman added, "There have been no settlement discussions and there never will be."
