These past few days have been on fire in terms of celebrity/entertainment news.
First there was Kim Kardashian’s divorce after just 72 days of marriage. Not very unexpected or of particular importance, but everyone seemed to obsess about it for a couple of days.
After that, the spotlight was placed on Julian Assange, the 40-year-old Australian hacker who founded Wikileaks. Two judges at London’s High Court have decided that a previous ruling calling for his extradition to Sweden must be upheld, meaning the whistleblower could face trial in Sweden in as little as 14 days — unless his lawyers manage to appeal his case at the Supreme Court.
But then news of a sex scandal involving Justin Bieber broke out, and oh boy, this could get huge and mute everything else. And I don’t mean huge in terms of importance, but huge in terms of “everyone will be talking about it.”
In case you haven’t heard about it yet, a 20-year-old California woman by the name of Mariah Yeater claims that she and Justin Bieber had sex backstage at the Staples Center and that the singer left her pregnant with Tristyn Anthony Markhouse Yeater, who is now 3 months old.
The woman recently filed a paternity lawsuit asking for a paternity test and financial support.
Here’s how the Mariah, pictured below, described her encounter to the court:
“After walking away from the other people backstage, Justin Bieber found a place where we could be alone — a bathroom.
We went inside and immediately his personality changed drastically. He began touching me and repeatedly said he wanted to f*ck the sh*t out of me. At the time I asked him to put a condom for protection, but he insisted that he did not want to.
In his own words, he said that because it was his first time he wanted to feel everything.
Justin then “quickly took off my clothes,” she said — and the pair had sex.
He was on top of me with my legs around him. At the time I was on top of some type of shelf. The sexual intercourse itself was brief, lasting only approximately 30 seconds.”
The sex was consensual, but according to California Penal Code Section 261.5(b), sex between anyone over 18 and a minor under 18 is always considered “statutory rape” because the minor cannot legally consent to it. So if the mother wins her case in court she gets a misdemeanor as a bonus.
As for what Justin Bieber’s alleged baby looks like, here he is.
If the woman’s story will prove to be true, Bieber will have lost both his virginity and his career in those 30 seconds of fun. If she’s lying, however, Mariah will probably be lynched by a mob of angry preteen girls. Read More
