If the texts are legit, they show that the whole "Justin Bieber is the father" allegations are just a get-rich scheme. "Pleeease ERASE ALL MESSAGES from my mom where she says Tristyn is Robbies son. I'll kick u when we get paid. I'm trusting you pleeease," Yeater (maybe) sent her (soon-to-be-former) friend, who probably gave TMZ the phone for a lot more than Yeater promised to "kick" them. There's been so much misinformation about this case -- with TMZ responsible for half of it -- that's it's hard to distinguish the truth and fiction, but there are a few curious things about the alleged text. Like, why would Yeater sign each of her own texts "[Mariah Laci]"? Yes, Laci is her middle name, but why sign the texts at all? Does she not understand how cellphones work? The phone already shows who's texting whenever a message is received.
The other shady thing about the text: It was sent yesterday, November 16, 2011 at 12:58 PM, just hours after her paternity lawyer said Yeater is in hiding. If she were that concerned about someone exposing her lies, you'd think that Yeater would request that those texts be deleted well before accusing Bieber, just to cover up her tracks. But that kind of logical behavior would suggest that Yeater has a fully functioning brain, and that's even harder to believe than Bieber being the father of her baby.
It should be noted that it's incredibly easy to forge texts, especially if TMZ isn't providing the phone number to prove the messages stem from Yeater's cellphone. If they're real though, they clearly point out that "Robbie," an ex-boyfriend but not the ex-boyfriend Yeater assaulted, is the father of Tristyn, not Justin. In August, Yeater supposedly wrote, "Would you please stress to Robbie how important it is for him to be in his son's life?" That's pretty open-and-shut right there, but until this "Robbie" emerges with his side of the story, let's hold off from any more snap judgments.
