A paternity suit against Justin Bieber has been dropped. According to TMZ, Mariah Yeater and her attorneys have quietly withdrawn from the case, in which the 20-year-old had claimed that the 17-year-old pop star had fathered her 4-month-old son.

Bieber and his team had denied the claims, and promised to "vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to protect Justin and hold those involved with bringing this suit accountable for their actions." The singer had agreed to take a paternity test to prove that the child was not his.

If Yeater's allegations were proven to be true, police told the Associated Press that she could be investigated for statutory rape.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
