(LOS ANGELES) — Justin Bieber is famous for his tunes, but his Tweets took center stage and got people talking this weekend. The most eye-opening was one aimed at Mariah Yeater, the woman who accused him of fathering her child.
On Saturday Bieber tweeted: “Dear mariah yeeter (sic) …we have never met…so from the heart i just wanted to say” and then he posted a link to a YouTube audio clip of the character Borat, played by comedian/actor Sacha Baron Cohen. In the clip, Borat says, mockingly: “You will never get this. You will never get this. La la la la la …”
His fans re-tweeted the original tweet more than 53,000 times.
Last year Yeater, 20, stunned the entertainment industry and Bieber’s millions of ardent fans when she sued the pop star, claiming she got pregnant after they had a minutes-long tryst in a backstage bathroom following one of his concerts.
Bieber, now 18, steadfastly maintained the incident never happened and said he had never met Yeater. The woman abruptly withdrew her lawsuit, but said she wanted to settle out of court.
Bieber reportedly took a DNA test to disprove the paternity claim.
Bieber posted the tweet during what he called Random Twitter Hour, which featured other odd postings, including: “Rick james is my grandfather”; “my loins”; “chuck norris wears justin bieber pajamas”; “why does david ortiz look like robocop haha” and “wish dirty diana would clean up her act.”
