Well, we kind of saw this coming, Mariah Yeater’s ex-boyfriend, Robert Powell andÂ possibleÂ father to Tristyn YeaterÂ claimsÂ Mariah made up the story of Â Justin Bieber being her baby daddy to make a quick buck! He says she sold her story to the tabloids for $50,000.
â€œShe lied,â€ says Robert Powell about his ex-girlfriend Mariah Yeater, who claims Justin Bieber is the father of her baby.
In an exclusive jailhouse interview with RumorFix, Powell says, â€œWe were both homeless and living in Oceanside [California] and Mariah was trying to make some quick money.â€
So he says she made up the story and sold it to a tabloid for $50,000.
Why target squeaky clean Justin Bieber? â€œShe just picked him, because she thought he was famous and all and thought she could get a lot of money by telling the magazine Justin was the father. She just saw him as an opportunity to make a lot of money,â€ he says.
Although Yeater claims she met Justin at a concert in Los Angeles and they had sex in a bathroom, 23-year-old Powell says Mariahâ€™s never met Justin nor has she been to one of his concerts â€” sheâ€™s only seen him on TV.
Speaking to RumorFix behind a glass panel, Powell got emotional at times saying Tristyn Yeater is his son, even though the birth certificate doesnâ€™t list a father.
â€œShe said she was doing it for us â€¦ for our family and son. She made it seem like it was all for us but sheâ€™s greedy. I donâ€™t know, I still love her though. All I want is to be with my son, thatâ€™s all I care about. She can take all her money, I just want my son. And man, on the real, I feel sorry for Justin Bieber. Heâ€™s just a little kid man. He donâ€™t need to be going through all this drama. He got a career and sh*t to focus on. I feel sorry for the dude.â€
Powell is in jail on three burglary charges a charge of receiving stolen property and drug possession.
Robbie has alsoÂ saidÂ he would be willing to give a DNA sample and he knows the baby is his because, â€œWe f***ked a lot and I know she wasnâ€™t f***king around on me. So thatâ€™s how I know.â€
So, basically Justin was just a randomÂ victim…crazy!
