What motivates these broads?
The young woman who claims Justin Bieber impregnated her during a Staples Center tryst may rue the day she dished about the quickie and its consequences.
That’s because the alleged hookup could get Mariah Yeater, 20, in legal trouble for statutory rape if her tale proves to be true, The Associated Press reported.
Bieber was still a tender 16-year-old — technically a minor under California law — when he and Yeater, then newly 19, allegedly got busy in an arena bathroom after one of his shows last October.
It is against California law for an adult to have sex with anyone under 18. If the offender is no more than three years older than the victim — as would be the case if Yeater’s claim were true — it would trigger a misdemeanor count punishable by up to a year in jail.
Yeater filed a paternity suit against Bieber in San Diego Superior Court, asking for a paternity test and, if Bieber is the daddy, financial support for the child.
But no criminal complaint has been made regarding the possible statutory rape.
Los Angeles police Cmdr. Andrew Smith told the wire service the department could launch an investigation.
“If it’s brought to our attention, of course we’ll look into it,” the AP reported.
Meanwhile, Bieber’s handlers finally put together a statement they felt confident with him making. Here’s what he had to say about his alleged backstage sex on the Today Show this morning.
“I think it’s crazy because every night after the show, I’ve gone right from the stage right to my car,” he explained. “So it’s crazy that some people want to make up some false allegations, but to set the record straight, none of it is true. Never met the woman.”
While the case is ongoing, Bieber is focusing on the positive, which includes his charity work. “Like I said before, there’s going to be good and going to be bad about this business and I want to focus on what’s real, like my fans are real, the charity work that I’m doing with this album is real and this is real,” he said speaking about all the fans that showed up at Rockefeller Plaza to catch a glimpse of the teen star. “I do it for these guys and I’m really happy to be here in New York and it’s been fun.”
