Mariah Yeater‘s paternity suit against Justin Bieber is still on, despite reports claiming otherwise.
Earlier today, a report from TMZ claimed that Yeater’s lawyers had smartened up and withdrawn from the case, and the suit was quietly dismissed last week.
But according to Radar Online, Chicago lawyer Jeffrey Leving says that Yeater is still moving forward with the suit, and they still want Justin to waste his time and take a paternity test to see if he’s the father of Yeater’s 4-month-old son Tryston.
“I did not step down and there is a legal team,” Leving, a paternity attorney, explained over the phone with WGNtv in Chicago. “She believes Justin Bieber is the father. Right now there’s no more interviews for Mariah Yeater, I’m not going to allow that.”
He continued, “Secondly, negotiations are going on right now with Bieber’s counsel and we’re trying to negotiate a private, secure DNA test with the same safe guards that would exist if there were a court order, but without a court order. The case is completely out of control and I don’t want something terrible to happen to my client or her child.”
He added, “My goal is that when the DNA test is completed, which I believe it will be…my goal is to keep everything confidential so the results will remain confidential.”
