Pattie Mallette: “Proud Mom, Love Selena Gomez” Interview

Mom Pattie has plenty of words of wisdom for Justin. She opens up about her history of sexual abuse and her struggles as a teenage mom in her new memoir, Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom.

She tells US Weekly:

“I’ve been through so much pain in my life that I’ve just always taught him don’t learn the hard way. Learn from my mistakes.

“My parents split at an early age . . . then I started getting sexually abused starting at age 4. And there was some ongoing abuse up until I was about 10 years old.

“It really skewed my view of men, sex . . . everything pure.”

Pattie lost her virginity at age 15 and became pregnant with Justin at 17.

      • StopHatin

        You must have a COMPLETELY different definition of pathetic in your mind to what it really is cos what’s really pathetic is the fact they people like you hate her without knowing her or giving her a chance! So look at yourself before hating on other. Ya get? K good.

  • Real Jsha bieber

  • YOLO

    again…you all sound like repulsive idiots! SHE HERSELF, PATTIE MALLETTE, SAID THAT LOVES SELENA AND SHE IS GREAT FOR JUSTIN. Now what would be her reason to lie about that?! Is Selena threatening her and telling her to say that?! NO! Pattie is full grown woman and her opinion on Selena says alot! So all you dumb asses saying Pattie is lying you wanna check yourself before you reck yourself. kthanks!! have a great day
