Yeater’s ex-boyfriend Robert Powell is the latest person to state that Mariah Yeater’s claim that Justin Bieber fathered her infant son was a “lie” that she made up in order to make money.
Earlier this year, Yeater filed a lawsuit against Bieber, saying that she became pregnant after having sex with the “Mistletoe” singer backstage at one of his concerts in October 2010.
Justin Bieber immediately denied the accusations, insisting that he had never even met Yeater. However, he still took a paternity test last month to clear his name.
Powell has since said that he is baby Tristyn’s father, and alleged that Yeater chose Bieber as the celebrity to pinpoint specifically in order to make money from selling her story to the press because they were homeless and she was attempting to make some quick money.
It worked, because the 20-year-old made $50,000 from an exclusive magazine deal.
So Justin Bieber was just Mariah Yeater’s meal ticket, apparently.
Powell is currently in jail on burglary and drugs charges. He says that he still loves Yeater and wants the best for his child. He defended his ex-girlfriend saying she made the accusations “for our family and son” but said she was “greedy.”
“All I want is to be with my son, that’s all I care about. She can take all her money, I just want my son.”
He said he feels sorry for Justin Bieber, whom he says is just like a kid, who doesn’t need to be going through this drama when he has a career on which to focus.
Justin Bieber’s paternity test results have not bee released publicly but Mariah Yeater has gone very quiet. It seems her ex-boyfriend is right, doesn’t it? It was all for the money.
