Justin Bieber Baby Daddy Update: Mariah Yeater’s Ex-Boyfriend Claims Baby Is His
Mariah Yeater’s ex-boyfriend Robbie Powell now says he, not Justin Bieber, is the father of the baby. Figures, doesn’t it?
And the drama continues: Justin Bieber did in fact take a DNA test last week as promised—but do you remember those wacky text messages that surfaced two weeks ago suggesting that Mariah Yeater’s ex-boyfriend Robbie Powell was the father of her child? Well, Robbie is finally coming forward to admit that he actually is three-month-old Tristyn’s dad—not the Biebs.
For those of you who need a refresher, the incriminating text messages, which Mariah had sent to a friend, stated that Robbie was indeed the baby daddy, but that she made up the story about Justin so that she could get some fast cash. So much for that, eh?
According to Perez Hilton, Robbie has finally had it with Mariah; specifically, he’s sick and tired of her using the kid for media attention. As such, he’s finally ready to set the record straight. TMZ reported that he’s been approached by several media outlets, though he hasn’t made a decision about who to talk to first.
Meanwhile, TMZ also got in touch with Mariah’s lawyer, Jeffrey Leving; perhaps unsurprisingly, Leving says that Robbie is guilty of the same thing of which he’s accused Mariah (that is, using the baby for publicity). Leving told them, “If Robbie Powell ‘actually’ believes and claims he is the father, I suggest he contact me directly. Litigating this case in the media and bypassing Mariah’s legal team only perpetuates the three-ring circus and accomplishes nothing as I see it.”
Interestingly, the case has now become less about Justin Bieber and more about the crazytrain that is Mariah Yeater. The question now, then, is whether Robbie is as crazy as she is. What say you, Bettys?
