Bieber pokes fun at Yeater over paternity claims

Justin Bieber has publicly mocked the California woman who sensationally accused the singer of fathering her child last year (11) by poking fun at her on his Twitter.com blog.

The Baby hitmaker found himself at the center of controversy in November (11) when Mariah Yeater, then 20, claimed Bieber had impregnated her during a backstage romp at one of his concerts in Los Angeles in 2010.


Yeater told reporters she had evidence proving Bieber was the father of her baby son Tristyn, but she withdrew her legal demand for a paternity test and child support after the singer's representatives vehemently denied her allegations and threatened to sue.


Bieber voluntarily took a DNA test to put an end to the scandal, and the case subsequently slipped out of the headlines.


But the teenage superstar, who is dating singer/actress Selena Gomez, revisited the matter again on Saturday (21Apr12) when he went on Twitter and posted a series of random thoughts online.


Closing a segment he called his "random twitter hour", Bieber wrote, "Dear mariah yeeter (sic)… we have never met… so from the heart i just wanted to say…", before adding a link to a YouTube.com audio clip of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's alter ego Borat taunting, "You will never get this, you will never get this, la la la la la!"
