Justin Bieber has taken a DNA test in his ongoing paternity battle, it is reported.
TMZ claims that the Baby singer submitted to a laboratory in New Jersey on Friday (Saturday NZT) and it is now down to Mariah Yeater to give her child's DNA.
The 20-year-old California woman alleges that she had a "30-second" rendezvous with Bieber backstage at one of his concerts in Los Angeles last year that resulted in her getting pregnant.
Bieber apparently took the test under "very controlled circumstances" and it would be very difficult for Yeater or her lawyers to challenge it if it comes back that he is not the father.
The site also reports that Bieber and his team will not even discuss a settlement with Yeater unless paternity is proven.
The millionaire singer has vowed to file a lawsuit against Yeater and her lawyers once he establishes that he is not the father of baby Trystan.
Yeater has dropped her initial lawsuit against Bieber but he apparently wanted to do the DNA test to silence controversy surrounding the issue once and for all.
Bieber's manager Scooter Braun told Extra recently that they want to make an example out of Yeater, should her paternity claims prove to be completely false.
"Just because [Yeater] did it, we don't want it to seem like it's okay for everyone to say, like, 'I had Justin's baby or having his baby. I'm actually having Justin's baby. I'm pregnant. I'm showing soon," Scooter said.
