Houston – we have a problem.
Just twenty four hours into the Mariah Yeater and Justin Bieber baby drama the story is not going away.
Los Angeles police have now said that they are looking into the fact that Bieber’s accuser, now 20-year-old Mariah Yeater, may have engaged in statutory rape with the then 16-year-old singer.
Yeater says she hooked up with JB in a private bathroom last year and had sex at the Staples Center after one of his concerts.
She claims in court documents that Bieber whisked her into a private bathroom and the two engaged in consensual sex that left her pregnant with now three month old Tristyn Anthony Markhouse Yeater.
California says it is a crime for an adult to have sex with anyone under eighteen years old. If the offender is no more than three years older than the victim it would result in a conviction of a misdemeanor charge punishable by up to a year in jail.
Yeater is suing for $12,000 per month to cover child support for their son. She also told police,
“The intercourse only lasted about 30 seconds and Justin did not want to wear a condom. He apologized for his lack of stamina afterwards and then I was whisked away and I never saw him again. I tried to contact him through normal channels but nobody ever got back to me so I felt I had to go public.”
A rep for Justin’s legal team told the press,
“These accusations are malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false. We will vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”
But there are some people out there that believe this is all a big hoax, a joke, a ruse, a con job, a Bieber baby scam.
They say the story was devised long ago as a way to keep Bieber’s name in the news during his Christmas album release and help bolster his masculinity in a growing crowd of fans that are starting to believe the whole Selena Gomez girlfriend thing is a big fraud and Bieber is, well… less than manly.
The Bieb’s DID appear on the “Today” show Friday morning to try and crush the rumors by saying,
"I'd just like to say basically that none of those allegations are, like, true. I know that I'm going to be a target, but I'm, like, never going to be a victim. It's, like, crazy, every night after the show I've gone right from the stage right to my car, so it's, like, crazy that some people want to make up such false allegations. To set the record straight, none of it is true."
Bieber told Matt Lauer, “I don’t know that women and I have never met her.”
But that didn’t keep the late night comedy world from taking a stab at the humorous aspect of the story.
In fact, Jimmy Fallon did a parody of the singers hit song “Baby” to explain to his fans what had happened.
We love it when Jimmy does a musical parody and this one will become a classic.
We have all seen how Justin and Selena Gomez act around each other – particularly their weekend romp in Hawaii earlier this year where photos emerged of Bieber grabbing Selena’s butt and the two sucking face in every photo.

We know JB likes to hump his women – so what if the baby story is true?
We’ll cross that bridge after the court date in December and after more of the facts are released.
We suspect this who thing may just disappear after clearer heads prevail.
