Conflicting reports have come out about the state of the paternity suit against Justin Bieber. According to TMZ, Mariah Yeater has dropped her lawsuit against Bieber and her attorneys have left the case. However, according to, Yeater’s paternity attorney is still taking on the case however, a little more privately. Jeffrey Leving, Mariah’s paternity lawyer, said that they are taking on the case privately to keep Yeater safe. Leving said, “I did not step down and there is a legal team. It’s a new legal team. In light of death threats against my client, strategies have been reviewed…the San Diego team has been replaced by John Carlson from Los Angeles. She believes Justin Bieber is the father. Right now there’s no more interviews for Mariah Yeater, I’m not going to allow that. Secondly, negotiations are going on right now with Bieber’s council 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.”Leving also admitted that he intends on keeping the results of the DNA test confidential. Yeater originally claimed that she had sex with Justin in a backstage bathroom at the Staples Center after a concert last October. The intercouse caused her to get pregnant with her son, Tristyn. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber will perform for the First Family at the annual Christmas in Washington holiday special. Cee Lo Green, Jennifer Hudson and Victoria Justice will also perform at the show. Christmas in Washington airs December 16 on TNTJustin Bieber‘s alleged baby mama sent a text Wednesday to a friend, begging him to erase an incriminating text in which her mom says someone OTHER than Justin Bieber is the baby daddy, and then promising to give him a cut of the action when she scores a payday.The person to whom Mariah Yeater sent the text asked us to blur his name — we’ll call him John.  He has been in touch with Yeater regularly … even before the baby was born on July 6. In the text, Yeater pleads for John to “ERASE ALL MESSAGES from my mom.” The text goes on to say that her mom sent John messages in the past, stating that baby Tristyn was fathered by Robbie — an ex-boyfriend.

She then goes on to talk about giving John money if he cooperates:  “Ill kick u when we get paid.”

All of her texts end with Mariah Laci– Laci is Mariah’s middle name.  And TMZ has seen many other texts between Mariah and John.  In one text, Mariah writes, “[John], would you please stress to Robbie how important it is for him to be in his son’s life?..”  Apparently, Mariah forgot about this text, because she didn’t ask John to erase it. John tells us he’s already shared this information with Howard Weitzman, Justin Bieber’s lawyer.Weitzman tells TMZ, “This information proves Mariah Yeater fabricated the story.  Our independent investigation indicates Ms. Yeater never meet Justin, she has consistently identified another man as the child’s father, and Ms. Yeater and her co-conspirators hatched this scheme in order to extort money from him and to sell her story to the media.”Weitzman adds, “There have been no settlement discussions and there never will be.”
