Justin Bieber takes paternity test

Pop star Justin Bieber has undergone a DNA test to put an end to allegations he fathered a child with a California woman.

Mariah Yeater, 20, hit headlines earlier this month (Nov11) after sensationally claiming the singer impregnated her in a backstage romp following a Los Angeles concert last year (10).

Mariah Yeater told reporters she had evidence proving Justin Bieber was the father of her four-month-old son Tristyn, but she ultimately withdrew her request for a paternity test and child support last week (ends13Nov11) after the singer vehemently denied her allegations.

And in a bid to put the rumours to rest, the hitmaker voluntarily took a DNA test on Friday (18Nov11).

Speaking to TV show Extra on the eve of the singer's doctor's appointment, Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun said, "(He) doesn't mind. He's like, 'I'm just going to go ahead... (with) it and be fine.'"

And Scooter Braun is still threatening to take legal action against Yeater for attempting to damage Justin Bieber's reputation, adding, "I think it's important to hold people accountable for their actions."
