The icky, icky Justin-Bieber-is-a-babydaddy allegations live on: Lawyers for alleged babymama Mariah Yeater insist there is “credible evidence” that her child was fathered by the then-16-year-old (a claim that ironically opens 20-year-old Yeater up to statutory rape charges). Yeater's paternity suit apparently alleges that the backstage encounter only lasted 30 seconds and took place in a bathroom, the Telegraph reports. (Want to put a face to your disturbing mental image? Celebuzz has pictures of Yeater.) The Biebs spoke out about the whole thing on Twitter, tweeting, “so Im going to ignore the rumors...and focus on what is real.”

Also on Twitter, not surprisingly: death threats directed at Yeater from Justin’s rabid “Beliebers.” Fox News and Gawker have highlights, like this gem: “Roses are red, violets are blue mariah yeater we are gunna kill you.” Meanwhile, you might be wondering: If this whole mess causes Bieber’s romance with Selena Gomez to go up in flames, who gets custody of the dog they adopted together last month? Well, allow Justin to clarify that for you: “I didn’t adopt a dog,” he told Ryan Seacrest yesterday, according to E!. “A friend of mine did. I don’t have anything to do with the dog.” Convinced this whole thing will bring Bieber down? Click to see who might take his place. (More Justin Bieber stories.)
