She probably didn’t expect this to happen: The 20-year-old woman who has filed a paternity suit against Justin Bieber could be investigated for statutory rape. The woman, Mariah Yeater, claims Justin Bieber impregnated her while losing his virginity in a backstage bathroom. However, if her claims are true, then Bieber was 16 at the time and she was 19—making her guilty, according to California law, of statutory rape. "If it's brought to our attention, of course we'll look into it," an LAPD spokesman told the Associated Press. Bieber denied having sex with Yeater on Today on Friday morning. “I’d just like to say that none of those allegations are true,” he explained, adding that he’s never even met Yeater. “Every night after the show I've gone right from the stage to my car, so it's crazy that someone would want to make such false allegations. To set the record straight: None of it's true.”
