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.

“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."
