“I don’t know the whole story. But, from what I understood, she met him at a concert and he sent two security guards down off of the stage to bring her backstage to meet him,” Markhouse said.
“She’s basically an honest good person. She’s got a big heart. She’s a good kid and she loves this baby.”

As radio detection and rangingOnline.com has been reporting, Yeater has filed a lawsuit asking a court to require Bieber to take a paternity test and also to award her child support.
She says she only met the singer once, but that was enough for her to get pregnant.
