Justin Bieber is putting the kibosh on Mariah Yeater’s paternity suit filed in San Diego Superior Court last week.

A source confirmed to Access Hollywood that Bieber is going to take a DNA test when he returns from Europe, where he is attending the MTV Europe Music Awards with girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Yeater claims she became pregnant during an encounter in a bathroom with Bieber after a concert last year (romantic!). The star “went from cute and gushy to just … more aggressive,” says Yeater in an interview with “The Insider” about their alleged 30 seconds of unprotected sex, which she says resulted in the birth of her son.

Bieber has denied the claims, telling the “Today” show recently that he’s “never met the woman.”

He’s not stopping at proving his innocence, either: Once the test comes back vindicating the Canadian pop star, his team plans to hit Yeater with a hefty lawsuit “to show there are consequences when somebody trumps up phony, hurtful allegations against a celebrity,” a source says.

What is up with Kate Middleton’s stomach?

It seems Kate Middleton can’t make a move without sparking pregnancy rumors. First, while visiting a UNICEF facility in Copenhagen, the Duchess of Cambridge declined to eat peanut paste, a food expectant mothers are usually advised to avoid. Her body language later in the visit only prompted further speculation. “It was very odd,” a source tells the Daily Mail. “Kate would not stop touching her tummy — it was very noticeable. She continually patted it and held her hands against it. She must have been doing it without realizing, and at one point she had both her hands cradling her stomach.”

And yes, this is just a thinly veiled: “Is Kate Middleton pregnant or just constipated” gossip item.
