Mom Pattie Talks About Justin Bieber’s Recent Bad Boy Behavior (Interview)

Justin Bieber and Pattie Mallette bond

While promoting her new book for teens, Nowhere But Up, mom Pattie Mallette talked about her experiences of raising Justin Bieber, and all the controversy that has been surrounding his behavior lately.

When asked about Justin’s recent bad behavior, Pattie told Today Show on July 8:

Well, I think as parents we all worry about our kids, whether they’re going off to college, you know, whatever — whatever situation they’re in. I think at a certain age, the parenting style changes. And, he’s always been such a strong-willed child, you know. I talk about that.

I talk to Justin. I text him and I call him every day, as much as you can for an adult child that doesn’t live with you. He knows what I think. We talk. It’s stuff that obviously I can’t share with the whole world, but we definitely talk. I hope I’m still a big voice in his ear.

“Everybody Wants To Sensationalize” Justin Bieber.

Pattie also tells Newsday on July 3 that she doesn’t cross the line when talking about Justin to the press.

He wants me to continue to respect his boundaries and my relationship with him.

Everybody has their own opinion and everybody wants to sensationalize everything. You have to sort of let them make some of their own decisions. Me, personally, I would love to be with him all the time and to be able to ground him and deal with his problems and do all of that stuff, but at some point the parenting style changes. I hope to still be a respected voice in his ear.

  • shellie

    hey Justin call me back please

    • Kalani

      Yeah I don’t think justin would ever call his fans. Or give out his number to any of his fans. Otherwise his phone would blow up and never stop ringing. Or would Selena’s phone. That’s why celebs keep there numbers private.



    • Justice Drew Beebs Lover

      I like him and Selena also….I think Pattie has done a great job raising him…she instilled faith in God and Jesus christ in him….witbout then Justin is nothing!!! Love you Bieby!!!!

  • essie j

    Justin is not bad lol he’s a normal teenager

  • ivan

    Justin is a very good talented kid who merely makes mistakes as we all do once in a while. The Media has done damage to his reputation by only mentioning his lateness to a concert or shirtless pics, for exaple, as if that makes him a terrible person. We have to fight back and not let them get away with it since his people merely ignore what is said thinking it will go away. I don’t agree with that.

  • Believe foreverlove

    He is a very talented kid but he needs to grow up sometimes and I am only 10 and am tell him to grow up
