Justin Bieber’s alleged baby mama Mariah Yeater has apparently been outed by a friend attempting to cover up evidence that yet another boy might be the father of her child.
The 20-year-old San Diego woman reportedly sent a text message to the friend yesterday (Nov. 16), asking him to erase messages in which her mother names yet another boy as the father of her child, according to gossip site TMZ.
Yeater even promises to cut him in on the action when she scores a payday from Bieber.
The new information, if accurate, marks another sudden and shocking twist to one of the most scandalous entertainment stories of the year.
Only yesterday, prominent paternity lawyer Jeffrey Leving, who joined the case last week, said he is pursuing the claim and had signed on another prominent lawyer John Carlson of Los Angeles to assist.
Leving said he is actively engaged in negotiations with Bieber’s legal team to arrange a paternity test.
The gossip site agreed to keep the friend’s name confidential in exchange for copies of the text messages.
He’s been a friend of Yeater’s since before her son was born on July 6.
In one text, Yeater pleads to “ERASE ALL MESSAGES from my mom.”
The text goes on to say that her mom sent John messages in the past, stating that baby Tristyn was fathered by an ex-boyfriend named Robbie.
“Ill kick u when we get paid,” she adds.
In other text messages, Mariah urges her friend to “stress to Robbie how important it is for him to be in his son’s life?..”
The friend told TMZ that he has passed the information to Bieber’s lawyer Howard Weitzman.
Weitzman in turn told TMZ the information amounts to convincing evidence that Yeater made up her story about having sex with his client.
“Our independent investigation indicates Ms. Yeater never meet 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,” he said.
Yeater also claimed that another ex-boyfriend John Terranova, father the child. When he denied the claim, Yeater allegedly assaulted him and broke out the window of a car. She’s facing battery charges as a result.
The fact that Yeater claimed another boy was the father doesn’t necessarily preclude Bieber. But her case is looking pretty thin at the moment.
