He's not the daddy: Mariah Yeater 'quietly drops paternity suit against Justin Bieber'

By Emily Sheridan

So who is the father? Mariah Yeater, who appeared on U.S. TV show The Insider last week, has withdrawn her lawsuit against the singer

Single mother Mariah Yeater has quietly dismissed her paternity suit against teenage pop star Justin Bieber.

The 20-year-old, who gave birth to son Tristyn four months ago, has apparently had a change of heart after filing legal action against the Canadian singer two weeks ago.

Her lawsuit seeking a paternity test and child support was withdrawn last week, according to

Lance Rogers and Matt Pare, the two lawyers who were representing Yeater, have apparently resigned.

The withdrawal of the suit comes after Bieber not only said he would submit to a DNA test, but was also planning to sue Yeater for making a bogus claim.

Yeater shocked 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, she 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 she was quizzed over what evidence she has to support her claims, Yeater said she has provided some to her attorney but could not discuss it on camera.

She added: 'It'll show in court to prove that my allegations are true.'

The Insider confronted Yeater on a recent interview with a security guard who claims that on the night in question, 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, Yeater said: 'No comment.'

The authenticity of Yeater's claims and her character were put under the microscope after photos of her stripping leaked online last week.

She was also arrested in 2010 for slapping an ex-boyfriend and charged with battery.

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.'
