The Word: Baby-mama drama stays for Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber

Before the illustrious Mariah Yeater accused Bieber of fathering her child, the last time I wrote about a situation so low-rent, I’m pretty sure it was during the Levi Johnston baby-daddy drama with the Palins.

The latest on the possible Biebs baby? While the 17-year-old pop star maintains he isn’t the father of Yeater’s infant son, the man who does claim to be, Robbie Powell, was arrested over the weekend in San Diego, according to Hollyscoop. The 23-year-old was charged with possession of methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia, as well as three charges of commercial burglary. Sources say Powell is looking to go public with his claims that Yeater made up the story about Bieber fathering her child, but he hasn’t settled on a media outlet yet.

After all of this, I hope that Bieber is the father just so that poor baby might have a chance at life.

Gosselin shoots down plastic surgery rumors

Kate Gosselin (new occupation: blogger at CouponCabin.com, continuing her fame-seeker tendencies) is shooting down Internet rumors that she got a facelift. “With all of the buzz about me having had a facelift, I will confirm that I have not had one (I am only 36!!!). But, I will take all of the talk about how rested and young I look as a compliment! So thanks!” she wrote.

I love Gosselin’s “I’m only 36!!!” excuse for not having plastic surgery, as that didn’t stop her from getting a tummy tuck in 2007 and breast implants in 2009. But, to be fair, she is 36 and a single mom to eight kids. Girlfriend probably needs all the plastic surgery she can get.
