Justin Bieber’s Paternity Case is Removed But DNA Testing is Still Required

Justin Bieber’s paternity lawsuit has been withdrawn as both camps wait for the singer to take a paternity test.

The suit filed in San Diego Superior Court by Mariah Yeater, 20, was recently removed without prejudice.

The case could be refiled at a later date but a hearing set for December 15 has been canceled.

Both parties will try to settle the matter out of court.

Earlier a woman claimed she had just turned 19 when she and Bieber, then 16, had a brief sexual encounter after one of the singer’s concerts.

But Bieber claims he has never met Yeater and denied allegations that he fathered Yeater’s son who was born in July.

A spokesman said Bieber prepares to submit to a paternity test in the coming weeks.
