New York: Californian woman, Mariah Yeater, who claims Justin Bieber fathered her infant son wants the pop star to take a DNA test just not the one he initiated last week, her lawyer claimed Wednesday.

Bieber, 17, went for the test at a New Jersey laboratory on Nov 18.

Chicago lawyer Jeffery Leving said that even though he has yet to provide evidence of the two’s alleged sexual encounter, the California woman deserved the right to meet Bieber with her baby and lawyers present and watch while he gets the test done.

“I want a new DNA test with both sides together at a lab in California as soon as possible,” the New York Daily News quoted Leving as saying.

“As soon as I tell her to do it, she’ll do it. We need proper protocol and a chain of custody.”

“For me to feel comfortable, I want a member of my legal team in the room when Justin Bieber’s genetic fluid is sampled,” he said.

“This case is unique in terms of media interest, celebrity and the amount of potential child support at issue.

“There could be motives on the parts of many different people to corrupt the evidence,” he added.
