A 20-year-old woman claims that Justin Bieber is the father of her 3-month-old baby boy.
Mariah Yeater says she had sex with the 17-year-old singer backstage at one of his concerts in Los Angeles when she was 19.
Her lawyers, Matt Pare and Lance Rogers, are asking the court to help her secure child support.
In an exclusive interview on “Dr. Drew” Thursday night, Pare and Rogers said that they trust their client unequivocally.
“In the relevant time period, she wasn’t having sex with anyone else,” Pare said. “That’s how we know Justin Bieber is, in fact, the father of the baby … we need the paternity test to verify that scientifically, 100-percent. It is a modest request. We’re not asking for an exorbitant amount of money. We need him to step up and take the test.”
Pare says would like to resolve the matter in a private and confidential manner.
“If Justin Bieber, through his attorneys, would like to contact us and open a dialogue, we would be happy to engage in that,” he said. “We haven’t heard from them whatsoever. At this stage, we are left with no other choice.”

Rogers knows it is their responsibility to present credible evidence under oath.
“It was important for us to make sure we had the details correct and that those details were verified and signed by our client,” he said.
The attorneys were asked what they would do if the paternity test came back and it proved Bieber was not the father, then having to possibly face a lawsuit from Bieber’s team.

“We think that’s highly unlikely based on the evidence we have, not all of which has been released to the media, by any means,” Pare said. “There’s credible evidence that supports he is the father.”
The lawyers explained why they have not gone public with the other evidence.
“We want to give Justin Bieber an opportunity to come to us and resolve this,” Rogers said.
Pare added that another reason is that a paternity case in California is “technically confidential,” explaining that they aren’t supposed to disclose evidence outside of court.
By filing the claim though, are Yeater’s attorneys admitting statutory rape, possibly putting Yeater in the position of facing criminal liability?

“Not technically,” Pare says. “Here is another thing that’s legally significant. Under California law, the difference in age is less than three years – then it is only a misdemeanor. If that’s the case, she may be on the hook for misdemeanor; $5,000 penalty.” Pare stated earlier that even if she is guilty of statutory rape, “that has no bearing whatsoever on the right for child support.”
Bieber’s team has denied all the claims and released a statement to CNN that reads: “While we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit, it’s sad that someone would fabricate malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false claims.”

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
