I’ve said up until now that I find Mariah Yeater’s story that Justin Bieber is the father of her baby believable. This was based on the allegations in the press, the assertions of her lawyers, and the first half of her interview with The Insider, which aired Monday. On Monday’s interview, Yeater detailed her alleged hookup with Bieber, and claimed she had additional evidence that would come out at trial. She was crying and she appeared genuinely nervous and upset. However truth expert Eyes for Lies analyzed Yeater’s story and behavior in that interview and came to the conclusion that she’s not telling the truth. One of the “tells,” according to Eyes, was the lack of detail in Yeater’s story, the fact that she acted uncertain, and her inappropriate affect. What’s more is that in the second half of the interview, aired yesterday (a clip of which is available above), Yeater was even more hesitant and was searching for answers to what should be simple questions if her story is true.
Eyes pointed out that Yeater never stated in that first interview that she tried to contact Bieber’s people first. When she was asked directly about this, (at :50 in the video above) she was very cagey. She was asked “When you tried to contact Justin’s people, what was their reaction?”
She scrunched up her face and said “No contact. I didn’t. Nothing. I heard nothing.”
She didn’t what? If someone asked you that question, and you had tried and tried to tell someone that you had their baby, wouldn’t you say something like “They didn’t get back to me and we sent them three letters and called them over ten times?” Like that’s something you would definitely know and be frustrated about.
Then she was asked “When you left the Staples center, what did you say to your mom? What did you tell her?” Yeater waited a few seconds before saying “I told her everything.” Well, where was her mom when she was screwing Justin Bieber in the bathroom? That’s a detail she left out of her story.
When she was asked what her mom thought about this story, she couldn’t even give an answer.
At about 1:30 into the video, she was asked about a paternity suit she filed against her ex boyfriend, John Terranova, last year. I don’t think that the paternity suit detail is accurate per se, I just think that John’s grandmother said Yeater accused John of being the father. We also know Yeater was arrested after confronting Terranova over paternity and allegedly slapping him. Instead of denying that story, Yeater just said “no comment” at first and later “OK,” like “OK,” I did it and I can’t deny it. It was very strange. Then she covered her face with her hand.
When she was asked about what other things might be dug up about her past during the course of this lawsuit, she gave a rambling and weak response. “No one’s past should matter on a future situation or… anything of that matter. I’ve seen, I’ve heard other celebrities’ problem, whatever. It scares me because I’ve seen nothing yet. People can be ruthless.”
Given Bieber’s glib response to this, I initially thought that he was just blowing this woman off. Now that I’ve seen her full interview, she seems like a whack job who is making this story up. We’ll see, though. If she is lying, I hope Bieber’s people sue her for every dime she made doing interviews and selling baby photos.
Oh and props to The Insider people for editing this interview and releasing it in two parts to make her seem credible at first.
