It's nice to see that Justin Bieber's rabid fan base is taking our advice and keeping calm over what his reps call "malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false" nookie claims made by one Mariah Yeater, who alleges the popster, 17, fathered her son after a brief backstage encounter.
"Roses are Red, Violets are Blue mariah yeater we are gunna kill you." That's just one of the many tweeted death threats targeting the 20-year-old mom, whose paternity suit, first reported by Star, has set off much wailing and rending of garments (e.g. jeggings, T-shirts with kitties) among the Bieber faithful.
Oh, and rage. Lots and lots of rage.
"Mariah Yeater if u keep saying that things 13 million beliebers and selena will kill u so better stop," threatens one fan, in a missive that ends with a winky face. Seems this person didn't take kindly to Yeater's contention that the Selena Gomez-dating singer told her it was his "first time."
"Dear Mariah Yeater, If karma doesn't hit you, I will," warns another. And then there's this gem: "No one deserves hate.... but I guess Mariah Yeater is the only exception."
So, who is Yeater, besides a trending topic on Twitter?
According to the New York Post, her court filing reveals she receives $500 a month in food stamps and public assistance and still owes $25,000 to the hospital where she delivered 3-month-old Tristyn.
Meanwhile, FOX News notes she's been unemployed since a temporary job in early 2011 and earned an average of $125 per paycheck over the last year.
Mariah also shows why it's important to keep your public profile neat and tidy.
Photos unearthed from her purported MySpace page are making the rounds, including a tattooed arm-over-boobs shot, a pic of her pierced face covered in Saran Wrap and another taken in a bathroom, the same place she claims her child was conceived after Justin's sold-out show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Oct. 25, 2010.
Yeater wants Bieber to undergo a DNA test and is reportedly seeking $12,000 a month in child support.
"From what I understood, she met him at a concert and he sent two security guards down off of the stage to bring her backstage to meet him," her grandfather, Eddie Markhouse, tells "Inside Edition." "She said they partied, had some drinks and they indulged in sex."
Mariah, he adds, is "basically an honest, good person. She's got a big heart. She's a good kid and she loves this baby."
Bieber, for his part, has been busy this week promoting his holiday album and shooting a video for "All I Want for Christmas Is You" with Mariah Carey.
"with this album Im giving portion of the proceeds to charity," Justin tweeted on Wednesday. "Im trying to help give back. nothing will stop me from that focus. NOTHING. So Im going to ignore the rumors . . . and focus on what is real. an opportunity to help by doing what i love. Judge me on the music! Love yall."
