'We are trying to settle this matter out of court with Bieber's camp', a new attorney for Mariah Yeater explains their next step in an effort to solve the case.
's baby drama is still on although Mariah Yeater has dropped her allegations. Refusing to back down, the mother of Tristyn takes a different route to settle the case this time around. Through her lawyer Jeffrey M. Leving, the single mother told the press, "We are trying to settle this matter out of court with Bieber's camp."
Leving also said, "This case was never dismissed. It can be refiled today or tomorrow." The attorney added that he worried about the Californian woman's safety by stating, "I just spoke to Mariah today, someone was recently stalking her." He explained further, "In light of death threats against my client, strategies have been reviewed".
Emphasizing his statement to settle the case behind the closed door, Leving stated in another interview with People, "We're negotiating with Bieber's counsel, to reach a confidentiality agreement and to get private testing and results." He went on, "Yes, of course I believe my client's allegations. I can't comment on whether she has physical evidence or not."
Jeffrey M. Leving, who is a Chicago-based attorney, represents Yeater in her case against Bieber with the help from Los Angeles attorney John Carlson. They were hired after the single mother's previous attorneys Lance Rogers and Matt Pare, who recently dropped the paternity lawsuit in a San Diego court, backed out of the case soon after the suit withdrawal.
Bieber's camp hasn't commented on Yeater's request on the "private negotiation", but his spokesperson Matthew Hiltzik has reacted to the lawsuit dismissal. He said, "As we've said from the beginning, it's sad that someone would fabricate such a malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claim. We'll continue to consider all of our options to protect Justin."
