Justin Bieber's alleged baby mama sent a text Wednesday to a friend, begging him to erase an incriminating text in which her mom says someone OTHER than Justin Bieber is the baby daddy, and then promising to give him a cut of the action when she scores a payday.
The person to whom Mariah Yeater sent the text asked us to blur his name -- we'll call him John. He has been in touch with Yeater regularly ... even before the baby was born on July 6.
In the text, Yeater pleads for John to "ERASE ALL MESSAGES from my mom." The text goes on to say that her mom sent John messages in the past, stating that baby Tristyn was fathered by Robbie -- an ex-boyfriend.
She then goes on to talk about giving John money if he cooperates: "Ill kick u when we get paid."
All of her texts end with Mariah Laci-- Laci is Mariah's middle name.
And TMZ has seen many other texts between Mariah and John. In one text, Mariah writes, "[John], would you please stress to Robbie how important it is for him to be in his son's life?.." Apparently, Mariah forgot about this text, because she didn't ask John to erase it.
John tells us he's already shared this information with Howard Weitzman, Justin Bieber's lawyer.
Weitzman tells TMZ, "This information proves Mariah Yeater fabricated the story. Our independent investigation indicates Ms. Yeater never met Justin, she has consistently identified another man as the child's father, and Ms. Yeater and her co-conspirators hatched this scheme in order to extort money from him and to sell her story to the media."
Weitzman adds, "There have been no settlement discussions and there never will be."
President Obama's Uncle:
Picture Proof ...
He's Still Selling 80 Proof
The pictures tell the story ... President Obama's uncle, wheeling and dealing behind a liquor store counter. So there's no doubt, he's still dodging the deportation bullet ... at least for now.
Onyango Obama was busted for DUI August 24th in Framingham, Massachusetts ...after almost smashing into a cop car. Immigration officials learned about the arrest, and then discovered the 67-year-old was in the U.S. illegally. In fact, Onyango was on the receiving end of a 1992 deportation order, but it was never enforced.
While Onyango challenges the deportation order, the pictures show ... he's making a living at the Conti Liquor Store.
He's due in court tomorrow for a hearing on the DUI charge.

Beyonce FINALLY Reveals
Her Wedding Dress!
Beyonce got married to Jay-Z back in April 2008 -- and now, more than three years later, we're finally seeing the dress!
The now-pregnant singer revealed her white wedding gown in the just-released music video for "I Was Here," which offers fans an behind-the-scenes look at Bey's life, going all the way back to her childhood.
As Knowles sings "I did, I've done, everything that I wanted and it was more than I thought it would be," the video flashes to her meeting President Barack Obama, winning Grammys, getting cozy with Jay-Z and, finally, the smiling bride in her dress.
The strapless gown with a huge train is pretty much what we'd expect from the superstar -- who loves to make a statement.
