It happens every day. In fact, it is pretty hard to avoid it. There are some things that can only be understood with a slap on the forehead. Things so mind-boggling that one wonders how humans managed to evolve thumbs while being this mentally inept.
Case in point: You are a woman with a baby out of wedlock you claim was fathered by a pop star. The only problem is that said pop star was a minor when said alleged sex took place, meaning that makes you a statutory rapist. While that would not protect said minor pop star from paying child support — because the law holds male rape victims financial responsible for the products of their abuse — it does mean that the district attorney of the city you claim the act happened in can charge you with child rape.
How do you combat that?
The 20-year-old woman who claims Justin Bieber fathered her now 4-month-old son says the pop star was “aggressive” and refused to wear a condom the night she says he got her pregnant.
“His whole demeanor changed,” Mariah Yeater told “The Insider” in an interview airing Monday night. “It went from cute and gushy…to just more aggressive.”
Yeater’s paternity suit against Bieber, 17, claims their tryst in a backstage bathroom at the Staples Center in Los Angeles following a concert in October 2010 resulted in the birth of her son Tristyn Anthony Markhouse Yeater this July.
She told “The Insider” their sexual encounter was the first for the then-16-year-old “Never Say Never” star.
“I told him to wear a condom,” said Yeater, who was 19 the time the alleged tryst took place. “He said, ‘no,’ that it was his first time and he wanted to feel everything. So I went with it, in the heat of the moment, and here we are today.”
It is possible Yeater is telling the truth, but it seems unlikely. It also does not help that Yeater previously claimed her ex-boyfriend, who filed domestic violence charges against her, fathered the baby.
However, it is an excellent ploy to get around the whole potential statutory rape charge. Let us see who buys it.
