Pattie Mallette tells Why She Chose Not to Abort Justin Bieber!

Justin’s mom, Pattie Mallette, opens up about some of the difficult decisions she was forced to make as a teenage girl with TODAY‘s Kathie Lee Gifford.

Prior to becoming pregnant, Pattie suffered sexual abuse, a subject she discusses in her new book, Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom.”

Of that abuse and the suicide attempt, Pattie told Gifford:

“I’ve learned it’s normal and natural for anybody who’s been through sexual abuse to carry that shame and that blame and feel like there’s something wrong with you. So I definitely carried that.”

“The suicide attempt was a culmination of, you know, built up over the years with the abuse and the pain and at the time I was messed up with all the drugs and alcohol. I was in a depression and the drugs and alcohol kind of spurred that on some more.”

By the age of 17, Pattie became pregnant with Justin, and at the time, she was encouraged to abort the baby. Of course, she said that was an option she couldn’t consider. She said:

“I just knew I couldn’t. I just knew I couldn’t. I just know I had to keep him. And, do the best. I didn’t know how I was going to do it. But I just knew that I couldn’t — I couldn’t abort. I had to do my best. I had to see what I could do. And I was determined to do whatever it took.”

Pattie went on to say that the first time she heard her son cry, it was literally music to her ears.

“I know this sounds crazy, but he sounded like he was singing. He did. It was like this, like, ‘A hah, a hah.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, it is so precious and amazing. I just want to squeeze him.’ “

Gifford’s full interview with Mallette airs Sept. 18 and 19 on TODAY show.

    • you no wat maybe it was a mistake but look at him now bitch he’s a superstar with beauty maybe ur dad shouldn’t have gotten ur mom pregneat because obviously ur to afraid to say this shit to justin’s mom so why hide on the internet if u can’t say to pattie or us belibers

  1. Heneeds to get into a car accident so I don’t have to listen to his voice everytime he comes on the radio!!!!! My favorite radio station is ruined because of his deafening voice!!!! He just needs to shut up because apparently singing is not for him!!!!!!!!!!! He needs to bitches just die!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Nope sorry I meant 2 say that I should have been an abortion. Im the one who needs 2 go drive into a river. And im gay as all u guys know by now. I need 2 go masturbate 2 Adam Lambert pics. Byyyyyeeeee!!!!!!!

  3. Pattie, your so strong. Thanks for fighting for him! We all love Justin, and we defintly love you for keeping him! Much love to you Pattie. <3

  4. Okay maybe this is all sweet for you guys, but why does every parent or relative have to share their tragic life stories when their related to someone famous? I mean Pattie is sweet an all, but it just comes off a little unusual for me.

    • HOW!! Because she didn’t KILL her baby and stayed strong. Getting pregnant as a teen is not a good choice but we don’t JUDGE them from their mistakes. She learned from hers, that’s what a role model is being all about.

      • First of all, being a role model doesn’t mean a person learns from their mistakes, that’s just being wiser than before. And Im definatly not saying she was irresponsible for not aborting Justin you moron. I don’t stoop that low.

    • Irresponisble because she got pregnant? She is a role model to plenty of pregnant teen girls because she didn’t abort Justin like most would. Even though many people were telling her to, she didn’t. She stayed strong and had him. I know not everyone’s child are going to just turn out to be some big stars but she toughed it out even if they didn’t have much. You should watch Never Say Never if you haven’t; Justin talks about his childhood.

      • So it’s irresponsible to take RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER ACTIONS…… stop trying to make pattie the bad guy in this story becaz it won’t work so just stop….. And this is a grown woman u taking bout older than u to now something about responsibility so don’t dare try total patties hand and say tht…. Tryin to hide it over the Internet when u can’t say it to her face Plz….. Yeah it was a mistake. BuT it was a beautiful one at that so yeah we all are irresponsible even u no ones perfect becaz everyone has hose moments when they wish tht they can redo this or change tht but they can’t so it is what it is…… You just ruin my day with your comment becaz like seriously after all she’s done she gets the hard shoulder FROM A DAMN CHILD LIKE WTF IS THAT!!!!!

      • Ya no. Irresponsible because she got pregnant when she was still in high school. And that’s not something I want to look up to. You guys are totally getting me wrong here. And as a matter of fact I did watch Never Say Never.

    • She’s not irresponsible, she took care of Justin and made sure he had everything he needed growning up. I don’t think that’s being irresponsible. So after that said, she’s a thoughtful and kind hearted person. Don’t judge other people by the mistakes they make growning up, cause NO one is perfect and everybody does it. anyways, She’s a very responsible person.

  5. Don’t I have a weird name? I hate JB now go ONE DIRECTION!!!!! I DONT LIKE HIM BECAUSE I FOUND OUT THAT HE CHEATED ON SELENA GOMEZ!!!! BITCH!

  6. All you haters who are infiltrating u-tube and sites like this like roaches-Dr drew may have openings for you on his show for the dysfuntional that need treatment. Leave Justin alone you wackos!

  7. Pattie seems so young and very pretty. Love how Justin’s mom talks about the trials and tribulation of getting pregnant so young. Didnt know what she’ll do or how she’ll support the baby. Justin seems so down to earth and very grounded at times. Him and Selena both seem very grounded couple who love each other very much.

  8. Hey @ jsha styles dont worry about me cause I tend 2 leave my tampon up my p#ssy 4 a while and dont be mad @ Justin bcuz im the dirty skank who cheated on Justin with Harry styles and my b!tch Demi lavoto. Thats right we had a 3 some I ate Demi’s fishy twat. So h8 me and not Justin.(PS my tampons been,up there 4 2 weeks!!!!!! )

  9. I’m so glad Pattie decided against the abortion. Who knew her son would inspire millions around the world? Kudos to her for being so strong. Love love love <3

  10. Aww! I’m so glad that she kept him! She is a role model to other young teens to let them know they should keep there baby because they could turn out as great as Justin!<3
