She probably should've backed down a long time ago, but Mariah Yeater is still keeping this baby stuff going.
After Justin Bieber submitted to the DNA test, his camp said they hadn't heard anything from Yeater's legal team. And they were only talking to the media, so it looked like maybe they had backed down. But now, Yeater's attorney, Jeffrey Leving, tells TMZ this isn't over. According to Leving, Yeater isn't avoiding the DNA test, and she's ready to compare her baby's DNA with Justin Bieber's. This chick is relentlessly nuts. But I guess that's what Bieber Fever does to you.
Leving does have an issue though. He says the DNA test Justin has already taken might not be accurate because no one from Yeater's team was present while it was administered. Which means he has no idea if the test was done using proper controls. Of course. Isn't this something they should've worked out beforehand? I think he's just upset that he didn’t get to meet Justin Bieber.
So I'm guessing now, when this DNA test comes back negative, Yeater's lawyers are going to use the argument that the test isn't valid. At this point, they're basically grasping at straws to postpone the inevitable lawsuit from Justin's team.
Justin's team says they haven't heard anything from Yeater's side since last Friday, when Justin took the test. Leving says they have been in touch with Justin's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, on Monday and Tuesday. Leving says that he hopes both sides will reach an agreement on the DNA protocol.
Meanwhile, Bieber appeared on the Today show Wednesday morning. And he was accompanied by a surprise guest. Spoiler alert, if you're Beliebin' on PST. Bieber announced to the crowd that "Usher Raymond" was in the house. Justin opened with his hit, Never Say Never, and then got everyone in the Christmas spirit with Under the Mistletoe. That's when Usher joined Bieber onstage for The Christmas Song.
Justin seems to be doing fine amid this baby drama. Probably because the world knows Mariah Yeater is insane. Initially, people thought maybe there was some truth to it. But then we saw those Facebook photos of Yeater wrapping her head in cellophane, and we were like, 'Oh, ok.'
Bieber appeared on a NYC radio show this week, and the hosts gave him a hard time about his romance with Selena Gomez, advising that he should date multiple women.
"Why would I let something so amazing slip away?" Bieber replied, referring to Gomez.
