London: The woman who accused Singer Justin Bieber of fathering her four-month-old son has dropped her paternity lawsuit.

Californian Mariah Yeater, 20, has filed legal papers stating she had sex with the 17-year-old Oct 25 last year following the singer`s performance at Los Angeles` Staples Center. On July 6, she gave birth to a baby boy and claims that Bieber is the father of the child.

Although Biber, who vehemently denied the claims, had agreed to go through a paternity test, the suit was quietly withdrawn late last week, reports TMZ.com.

Yeater`s lawyers Lance Rogers and Matt Pare have also stopped representing her after Bieber`s attorney Howard Weitzman warned Yeater that they were planning to sue her and her legal representatives for making false claims.
