Mariah Yeater, the 20-year old that accused Justin Bieber of fathering her 4-month old son, has dismissed the paternity lawsuit she file against the pop star.
The suit was dismissed late last week, according to TMZ, and Yeater’s lawyers, Lance Rogers and Matt Pare dropped her as a client.
As we previously reported, after Yeater made her bogus claim Justin agreed to take a paternity test to prove he was not the father, but he also revealed his plans to sue Yeater and her attorneys for defamation after the test proved he was not the father of her child.
We saw this coming. After he threaten to sue, there was no way she was moving forward with this sham of a lawsuit.
Update: The Associated Press is reporting that while the lawsuit has been dropped, the paternity test is moving forward.
Yeater’s new attorney Lawyer Jeffrey Leving confirmed to The Associated Press that the suit filed in San Diego Superior Court by Mariah Yeater, 20, was recently removed without prejudice. However, the lawsuit could be refiled at a later date.
“This case was never dismissed. It can be refilled today or tomorrow,” Leving said. “We are trying to settle this matter out of court with Bieber’s camp.”
Leving stated that the case was best handled outside of the courts due to death threats made to Yeater.
“I will state right now it’s better that it’s handled out of court which is in the best interests of everybody,” Leving said.
