Mariah Yeater interview starts at 2:30 in. She addresses the other paternity claims at 13:00
There are so many nightly entertainment news programs in America. Last night’s Inside Edition had video footage of Mariah Yeater, the 20 year-old who has filed a paternity claim against Justin Bieber. The video was just of Mariah feeding the baby boy she says is Bieber’s, three month old Trystan, a bottle. I assume that she was paid for the video. She also did an interview with The Insider, which was probably willing to pay her more than Inside Edition, and they’re airing it in two parts, the first of which was on yesterday. (And is above.)
As I mentioned in yesterday’s story, I found Yeater credible and somewhat sympathetic in the clip I saw. She clearly stated her case, and said she was in possession of additional evidence that was back up her claim that her baby was fathered by Justin Bieber. This interview comes after news came out that Yeater first accused another man, an ex boyfriend, of being the father. She got into a physical altercation with her ex after she confronted him over paternity, and was arrested in December of last year for allegedly smacking him. (Britain’s The Mirror used unconfirmed sources to claim that Yeater accused yet another man, a guy they call “Steve,” of fathering the baby. Given the source, it’s just as likely that The Mirror made all that up. Until people are willing to go on the record with that story, I don’t believe it. )
I had the chance to watch the full first part of Yeater’s interview, that’s above, and I think that she’s telling the truth. Sure she’s getting paid, but that doesn’t mean she’s lying about having sex with Bieber. In the interview, Yeater says “everyone has a past” when asked about the previous paternity claims, and answers “no comment” when asked directly about her ex. She later says about her ex “That’s all he is, some boy.” She gets frustrated when asked if the other young women who were backstage with Bieber can verify that she was there the night she claims he got her pregnant. It’s hard to tell whether she’s frustrated because her story is made up, or whether she’s frustrated because she knows that Bieber’s lawyers are going to rake her over the coals.
In part two airing tonight, Yeater cries and walks off when they show her the footage of Bieber denying ever meeting her. You can watch a preview of that below. I think she’s just overwhelmed and realizes that this is going to be an incredibly hard struggle. Does she even know that baby is Bieber’s though, does she just suspect it, or did she concoct this whole story for cash? If she did make it up, she’s either a pretty decent actress or a complete nut job.
