Justin Bieber has agreed to take a paternity test when he returns to the United States in two weeks, a representative for the teen pop star said on Monday. The 17-year-old singer is planning to sue Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old woman who has filed a paternity suit against him claiming that he fathered her 3-month-old child.

Matthew Hiltzik, Bieber's representative, also said that the singer's team plans to "vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to protect Justin." In addition to Bieber's legal action, Yeater may find herself charged with statutory rape, as her alleged encounter with the singer happened when he was only 16.
