Pop artist Justin Bieber told David Letterman on Tuesday that he indeed took the paternity test, as promised. Access Hollywood reports that the singer told the TV show host in a recording done for “The Late Show with David Letterman” that it wasn’t a big deal. “”They just swab your mouth.”
On Tuesday night, Justin Bieber, 17, announced that he kept his promise to the public and went to take the DNA test that is meant to prove he is not the father of Mariah Yeater’s baby. Earlier this month, Yeater made it public that she filed a lawsuit against Bieber so he would recognize he fathered a child with her. According to her statement, they hooked up on October 28 2010, and from that affair, a baby boy was born. The 21-year-old mother gave a series of details on the short time she had supposedly spent with the pop star, but none of them seem to be true. Last week, it was reported that she silently dropped all the charges against Bieber.
However, Justin felt like he had something to prove to his fans: that he was not lying and was not trying to shift responsibility. He announced that he is going to provide a DNA sample as soon as he would come back from touring. “Yeah, I took it”, he told David Letterman.
When talking about celebrities being victims of invented stories quite often, Bieber seemed to take the risk very well. He was very calm and in control.I”t’s going to happen. Being in the spotlight – people can say whatever”, the teenager said. He never saw himself as a victim during the paternity scandal. In fact, he even said he had no intention to be a victim in the situation and was planning to fight back.
So what now? About a week ago, Bieber said that after taking the paternity test, he intends to file a lawsuit against Mariah Yeater for false allegations. Will he do that?
