At least our dream of Justin Bieber going on Maury hasn't gone down the drain.
Despite the fact that Mariah Yeater dropped her paternity lawsuit against Bieber, her lawyer is saying this thang ain't over! Her NEW rep, Jeffrey Leving, says because of the multiple death threats Yeater has received, Beiber's team has agreed to continue to handle the DNA test out of court.
Leving told reporters:
"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.
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"
Totally agree! It doesn't matter how big of a liar she is, Mariah and her child should NOT be put in any physical danger!
However, we completely disagree with the lawyer's second sentiment:
“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.”
Not only is this unfair to us, it's not far to Justin! If he is not the father he has every right tell the world (or dance on Maury)!
We're not sure we buy Leving's story. Guess only time (and Justin's reps) will tell!!
