Justin Bieber Was Shocked by Paternity Claim Press Coverage


A clip of Justin Bieber‘s interview with ABC News program ‘Nightline’ is available, in which The Biebs addresses the Mariah Yeater saga. Her paternity suit –remember, she claimed The Biebs knocked her up in a Staples Center Bathroom, post-performance, and nine months later little Tristan popped out — is long dead, but it clearly remains a sore spot for the singer.

The Biebs shares why he wrote the ‘Believe’ tune ‘Maria‘ about her, saying, “It’s about Mariah Yeater, who claimed that she had my baby, which is completely false. It’s basically explains my side of the story and how I felt in the situation.” He also acknowledges the thematic and lyrical similarities to Michael Jackson‘s ‘Billie Jean.’ Because, really, how can he not? It’s an obvious homage.

When asked about how the Yeater crisis felt from the inside, The Biebs bristled at how the media treated it. He admitted, “At first I didn’t even really pay attention to it. I thought, ‘This is crazy, this will blow over.’ Then it made headline news. I was like, ‘Why are they even picking this up? This is ridiculous.’”

The singer also mentions that he was surprised that the story got so much credence and coverage, saying, “I didn’t even think anyone would believe it.”

He did not, however, resent taking the DNA test to prove he was not the father, as Maury Povich is prone to declaring. He was more irritated than anything, saying, “I didn’t want to take it. I was like, ‘Why should I have to do this? Am I going to have to do this every time someone says this?’ I wanted it to be over.”

Biebs, we love you. Unconditionally. But it can be over if you stop bringing it up. Yeater’s golddigging antics appear to have left a mark on our young and sensitive superstar. This isn’t the first time he’s had beef with the media, either. Look no further than the recent paparazzo scuffle.

Let it go, Biebs. Let it go. No need to be a Yeater Hater. She doesn’t deserve your thoughts or time.
