REPORT: Mariah Yeater Considered Giving Up Son For Adoption, Recently Arrested


By Daniel Gates


Mariah Yeater, the woman who claims Justin Bieber fathered her baby, reportedly considered giving up her son for adoption.

The 20-year-old is said to have initially mulled parting with 4-month-old Tristyn, now the subject of a paternity lawsuit against Bieber, according to the New York Post.

The paper quotes a family source as saying Yeater was originally indecisive about keeping Tristyn while still pregnant with him.

Other details are also beginning to emerge about Yeater, including a reported December 2010 arrest in Las Vegas for battery for allegedly “slapping” a man in the face.

She pleaded not guilty.

Additionally, Yeater’s stepfather, Anthony Simeonoff, was sued by her mother over a paternity matter in 1997.

Yeater claims a sexual encounter with Bieber backstage in Los Angeles in October 2010 resulted in Tristyn’s birth last July 6.

She’s seeking a test to prove Bieber’s paternity and, if established, enormous monthly child support payments.

Earlier today, Bieber directly slammed the paternity allegations for the first time.

Meanwhile, police may open a statutory rape investigation of Yeater.
