Report: Woman Drops Paternity Suit Against Justin Bieber

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- The woman who accused Justin Bieber of being the father of her baby son has dropped her paternity lawsuit against the 17-year-old singer, TMZ reported Wednesday morning.

As it happened, the suit by 20-year-old Mariah Yeater was dismissed late last week, according to TMZ, while attorneys Lance Rogers and Matt Pare have also withdrawn from representing her.

Bieber vigorously denied the allegations of having had sex with Yeater following a concert last year that she alleged resulted in her becoming pregnant and having his child.  Bieber also offered to take a DNA test to prove his innocence.

Yeater might have decided to drop the paternity suit after Bieber's attorney Howard Weitzman threatened to sue the woman for making what he termed was a bogus claim.
