Like a deranged neighbor, Justin Bieber's accuser, Mariah Yeater, is there, lurking daily in his neighborhood. Does her claim have merit? Is she being truthful when she says Justin Bieber is the father of her baby boy?
Or is the whole thing a scam?
Now if you don't think it's a scam then you most likely believe that Barry Bonds never used steroids, that Sarah Palin is a legitimate and reasoned politician and Santa Claus really ex...well, given the time of year, let's leave Santa out of it. She's a scam artist and she is doing what her ex-boyfriend now says she's doing: milking it for a buck.
Robbie Powell is the Dad, not Justin Bieber
The latest news that has the smell of truth comes from an online site called RumorFix. It is a site that - you guessed it - fixes rumors, or it purports to, by exposing them as truths or falsehoods. They have quotes from a fellow named Robbie Powell, the former boyfriend of Yeater.
Texts uncovered by TMZ in November which Yeater sent to a friend confirmed Powell as the father of Tristyn. You remember those texts? The ones where Ms. Yeater told her friend to delete texts from her mom that asked the friend to talk Robbie into getting involved in Tristyn's life? The ones in which Yeater herself said Robbie was the father of her son? Yes, those texts.
Powell is unhappy with his ex- using the product of their coupling to get money. So unhappy he's telling the truth...or at least it rings true. “She lied,” Powell told RumorFix, adding she got 50 grand for telling her tale to a tabloid. “She just picked (Bieber) because she thought he was famous and all and thought that she could get a lot of money by telling the magazine Justin was the father. She just saw him as an opportunity to make a lot of money.”
Justin Bieber: Yeater is a "Weasel"
So where does this all go? Well, Yeater and her Chicago lawyer, Jeffrey Leving, who sounds as if he's got as much interest in the truth as his client, are ignoring Powell's remarks and those damning texts. They're going on about how they want a mutually agreed upon DNA test from the Bieber camp and direct negotiations with Howard Weitzman, Bieber's lawyer, and yada yada yada. They're trying to get some 'go away' money.
Bieber won't give it. He called her a "weasel" on David Letterman and now he has called her bluff. They're not paying and they've taken a DNA test with a reputable firm and that's all a court of law will require. His people have also stated they intend to bring a criminal lawsuit against Yeater so at some point this thing is gonna start going south on her.
So while the deranged neighbor is gonna be hanging around a while longer eventually her rent will come due and, like it or not, she'll be forced to move along. The only question is whether she'll get to pick her new neighborhood or whether the courts will decide that for her.
