Justin Bieber scheduled a paternity test for Friday to prove he didn't father a fan's child.
The 17-year-old singer has vehemently denied being the father of fan Mariah Yeater's four-month-old son.
In an interview Thursday, his manager Scooter Braun said: "He's ready to take a paternity test, at any moment. We have one scheduled for tomorrow. (Justin) doesn't mind. He's like 'I'm just going to go ahead of it and be fine.'"
While Yeater has dropped her lawsuit, her new lawyer has stated they plan to pursue the matter privately but Braun hinted they are willing to take legal action against her over the claims.
He said: "We've never even seen the lawsuit, but we're going to just get ahead of this thing and go right after it. I think it's important to hold people accountable for their actions."
Bieber, who is dating Selena Gomez, hopes that if they take action against Mariah, it will deter other people from making similar claims in future.
He said: "We don't want it to seem like it's okay for everyone to say, like, 'I had Justin's baby or having his baby.' "
