Bieber paternity hearing no longer on December 15

Whatever the status of the paternity lawsuit that's been filed against Justin Bieber may be, one thing we know for sure: the hearing scheduled in December is no longer on the calendar.

TMZ reported Wednesday that the lawsuit lobbed at Bieber earlier this month has been dismissed. Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old woman who claims she became pregnant with her infant son after having sex with the teen star backstage at a concert last year, was seeking to "scientifically confirm" that Biebs is the dad and to seek child support.

Since news of the suit arrived, Bieber's team has denied the allegations. Last week it was reported that the 17-year-old was going to take a DNA test, and then potentially even sue Yeater for making the allegations.

Karen Dalton, Public Affairs Officer for the Superior Court of San Diego County, tells CNN that she can't confirm that the paternity case has been dismissed because of confidentiality laws. But she does say, that "There is no longer a hearing scheduled for December 15."

The office of attorney Matt Pare tells CNN that he no longer represents Yeater. The office of her other reported attorney, Lance Rogers, isn't commenting on Rogers' status as Yeater's representation.

Neither attorney had a comment on the case.

    Earlier, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez revealed that they have split up their own relationship over Justin Bieber close friends Chris Brown, Lil Wyane and Sean Kingston. Justin and Selena which is known as Jelena apparently concluded their relationship after a concert of Selena Gomez in Florida together with Sean Kingston. It also seems Selena doesn't like Justin Bieber to hang with his friend Lil Wayne, who has bad background of drugs possession as well as Chris Brown. Selena also claimed that by next coming days She will try to keep her relationship with Justin Bieber as normal as possible..;,'

    Justin Bieber is more likely a closeted gay than the father of the baby. The baby's mother is trying to jew Bieber out of his money. Would never pay to see Bieber's show even if offered free tickets to a show at Key Arena.

    So he's 17 years old , that means that last year when they were "doing it" back stage he was 16. I believe that the 20 year old woman actually stands to be convicted of molestation, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and a few other charges. Her 15 minutes of fame are just about over.

    Here's a better question. Why do we care? Why do we give a damn? It should be their business what the hell they do or don't do. If she's insane, someone down the road will have her tested. If he's the father, whatever. This happens so often to normal people and celebrities alike, it isn't even interesting anymore. What makes these people so interesting to you all? I genuinely don't get the big deal.

      Gee Emelia....where have you been? This kid's face is on every magazine, every newspaper, radio and television. We are only curious because we've seen this guy non stop for over 2 years. Weve watched him grow up in the media and for the record at 17 he is still considered a juvenile. So thats what makes this interesting, weve been conditioned this way thru media hype. Im too old to care about his music, dont listen to pop radio but I see him somewhere in the news almost daily.

  28. paternity for dummies

    1. Settled out of court means: settled OUT OF COURT. Therefore no public record. Just a contract agreed upon by two parties that will most likely never see the light of day unless one party breeches said contract....then it goes to court.

    2. Anyone who thinks that a mother can just say no to a court order that demands she submits to paternity test lives in a land where contempt of court does not exist. Unfortnately, this is America where all courts (despite jurisdiction) do follow said rules. Its part of what gives the court the authority to decide matters of law.

    3. If things were settled out of court then of course her attorney would walk away because everyone already got paid. -.-

    No matter what your opinion use both law and common sense...not a bias

    There was no payoff here. To figure out why, watch the lawyers. This woman's lawyers **quit**. That should tell you two things: First, there was no money. If there was money, the lawyers would have stuck around to make sure they got their 1/3. Second, she has done (or seeks to do) something inappropriate that makes it permissible for them to quit under CA's ethics rules. The ethics rules don't permit a lawyer to just quit in the middle of a case unless he or she can point to one of the "good reasons" listed in the rules. My guess would be that she lied to them.

    I strongly dislike him myself but I dont think it was his. As far as why he doesnt go after her for slander is a good question. And as far as statuary rape deal, it will depend on the state law. Some consider 16 legal age. Others younger or older. Dont make it right, but its the states choice. I personally would keep my suit against her for slander. Just saying

    It's Bieber's kid. Think about it. Why would an older woman claim to have his kid, knowing good and well that he is underage, and could face charges of statutory rape. Settled out of court, problem solved. And notice that most of the people that can't handle/believe this are female. Just get over girls, you'll never be with him and he is a guy, your image of him has changed. Welcome to the real world.

    No way is he the father...I think she did this to hopefully get some kind of publicity, even if it is bad publicity. Those lawyers were probably trying to make a name for themselves too...He was willing to take the paternity test and then sue her afterwards...that is why this has disappeared...she probably never thought about him suing her.

    She probably doesn't even know who the Father of the child is. She's just another young Mother who realized that she made a mistake by having a baby too soon. Her mind is still stuck on things like fame and attention. That's why she's making these accusations. In the long-run, all they'll do is make her look bad, and make her life even more difficult. Bieber wins.

    He's not the dad, but now he can't prove it. You gotta feel bad for him. She and her lawyers cancel the hearing (and presumably drop the paternity suit), but Bieber can't compel her to provide the kid's DNA anymore, right? He has no right to ask for somebody else's (especially a baby) blood / DAN without the parent's consent, I assume.

      How can he prove anything without the cooperation of the mother? He needs his DNA and the baby's DNA to prove one way or the other.

      Only reason he wouldn't take that path is if it was his child. Because if it's not your baby, why wouldn't you take the test, prove it isn't yours, and then sue her for defamation? The only logical conclusion is that it is his baby.

    Here's what happened... Bieber talked to the lawyers, and admitted it could potentially be his kid. So instead of having the DNA test and the paternity suit, they found a number and settled out of court, with the condition that this girl not go public with the results of her case. Bieber doesn't have to pay child support, and doesn't have to admit he's the daddy, the girl can't say for sure if he's the daddy, but has enough money to support herself and the child. This happens a whole lot more than people know about.

      Come on, lets not be stupid about it. Bieber was called out, If he is not the father his lawyers would be all over this, making sure that his good name was cleared, but the fact that the suit was dropped only means that the girl was paid off. Not everything happens in a "settlement" He has enough money to ask her to drop the case and never ever bring it up again. That im sure, is what happened.

      @Mark
      The problem with that is that she now has a child to support. Even if she is a total liar, the child should not have to suffer for her stupidity. There are two possibilities: Settled out of court since there was a chance OR his lawyers called her bluff and laid out the legal repercussions should she continue the suit (I favor the latter. Honestly, would you choose her out of the millions of girls at your concert?). Either way, I think she needs a psychological evaluation for that child's safety!
