A lawyer for Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old California woman who claims Justin Bieber is the father of her baby, says they are moving forward with the case, hoping to negotiate out of court with the singer's legal team.

Earlier today it was widely reported that Yeater and her lawyers had dropped the case, but Jeffrey Leving, a Chicago paternity lawyer representing Yeater, says he is still working to negotiate a private DNA test to determine whether Bieber is the father. It is unclear whether the original lawsuit remains active. Yeater has switched attorneys in California, Leving told WGN in Chicago, and he will not allow her to speak to the press.

"The case is completely out of control and I don't want something terrible to happen to my client or her child," he said.
