Mariah Yeater has quietly dropped her paternity lawsuit against teenage pop star Justin Bieber.
Mariah Yeater, 20, who gave birth to son Tristyn four months ago, has apparently had a change of heart after filing legal action against Justin Bieber two weeks ago.
The single mother’s lawsuit seeking a paternity test and child support was withdrawn last week, according to TMZ.com.
Lance Rogers and Matt Pare, the two lawyers who were representing Mariah Yeater, have apparently resigned.
The withdrawal of the suit comes after Justin Bieber not only said he would submit to a DNA test, but was also planning to sue Mariah Yeater for making a bogus claim.
Mariah Yeater shocked Justin Bieber’s legions of fans – and his girlfriend Selena Gomez – when she claimed he had fathered her son during a 30-second tryst in a bathroom after his concert at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on October 25 last year.
In an interview on U.S. TV show The Insider last week, Mariah Yeater claimed: “He (Bieber) immediately took a liking to me and we just got to talking and then he eventually asked me, <<Do you mind if we can go somewhere and be alone?>>”
When Mariah Yeater was quizzed over what evidence she has to support her claims, she said she has provided some to her attorney but could not discuss it on camera.
“It’ll show in court to prove that my allegations are true.”
The Insider confronted Mariah Yeater on a recent interview with a security guard who claims that on the night in question, Justin Bieber’s dressing room was full of friends and family, staying with the teenage heartthrob until he left.
Asked for her response on the guard’s claims, Mariah Yeater said: “No comment.”
The authenticity of Mariah Yeater’s claims and her character were put under the microscope after photos of her stripping leaked online last week.
Mariah Yeater was also arrested in 2010 for slapping an ex-boyfriend and charged with battery.
Justin Bieber addressed the rumours on the U.S Today Show, saying: “I would just like to say basically that none of those allegations are true.
“I know that I’m going to be a target but I’m never going to be a victim.
“I think it’s crazy because every night after the show I’m gone, right from the stage to my car so it’s crazy that some people want to make up such false allegations but to set the record straight, none of it is true.
“I’ve never met the woman.”
