Celebrity gossip site TMZ reported early Wednesday that Mariah Yeater dismissed her paternity suit against the teen heartthrob last week.

TMZ also reports that the lawyers who filed the case on behalf of Yeater, Lance Rogers and Matt Pare, are no longer representing her.

Yeater filed a lawsuit earlier this month against the young pop star claiming he fathered her child, and asked a San Diego court to order Bieber to submit to a paternity test and provide child support, CBS station KCAL reports.

Yeater claims she had just turned 19 when she says she and Bieber, then 16, had a brief sexual encounter after one of the singer's concerts at Staples Center. According to The Associated Press, She said she gave birth to a boy in July and believes Bieber is the father because there were no other possible men she had sex with at that time.

Bieber publicly denied ever having met Yeater and a hearing in the case was set for Dec. 15.

While no crime has been reported, Los Angeles Police Commander Andrew Smith told The Associated Press last week that the department could investigate Yeater for allegedly having sex with a minor because the singer was 16 at the time.
