Fifteen minutes and counting: Mariah Yeater's claims that Justin Bieber is her baby's daddy are slowly falling apart.
Robbie Powell, Yeater's ex-boyfriend, has been telling friends that Yeater herself has told him that the whole Bieber story is a lie, according to TMZ.com.
A source close to Powell revealed that the fed-up ex finally decided to come forward because he was "tired of Yeater using the kid for media attention" and some monetary gain.
It was also previously revealed that Yeter, 20, once texted an anonymous friend with some damning evidence - namely, telling the friend to "ERASE ALL MESSAGES from my mom" that referenced Powell as the father of her child.
"Ill kick u when we get paid," she added, "im trusting you pleeease."
Other texts released by her anonymous friend ask him to "please stress to Robbie how important it is for him to be in his son's life?.."
Yeater initially came forward with claims that the pop star, 17, fathered her child during a romp backstage following a concert in Los Angeles.
The tween heartthrob spoke out against her claims on the “Today Show” earlier this month, saying that he “never met the woman.”
“I know I’m going to be a target, but I’m never going to be a victim,” he said of the tabloid rumor.
Powell is currently in talks with several media outlets to tell his side of the story, according to sources.
