 Singer Justin Bieber vehemently denied even meeting Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old woman who claimed he had fathered her baby. (Luke MacGregor/Reuters)Justin Bieber can return to making teenage hearts flutter full time now that a 20-year-old woman has withdrawn a lawsuit claiming he was the father of her four-month-old baby.

Mariah Yeater withdrew her lawsuit last week, TMZ reported Wednesday. She is no longer seeking a paternity test or child support.

Bieber, 17, emphatically denied ever meeting Yeater, who claimed they had sex following his concert in Los Angeles on Oct. 25, 2010.

His legions of fans - Beliebers, as they're known - defended him vigorously on Twitter and Facebook.

But even the possibility that the world famous singer with the squeaky clean reputation had impregnated a woman, or that he had done so in what she described as a 30-second tryst backstage in an arena, came as shocking news to many. There were murmurs the allegations had even caused a rift between the singer and his girlfriend Selena Gomez, 19.

Did the whole Justin Bieber baby story change your opinion of the singer? Or do you think the same of him now as you always have?
