There’s no doubt that Justin Bieber has had his share of issues over the past few years. The former teen pop sensation went from every teenage girl’s fantasy to a moody, broody young adult who got in trouble with his neighbors, was publicy recorded urinating in a mop bucket in a restaurant, was filmed in a brothel and eventually arrested for a DUI. Bieber is now making a comeback as a supposedly older and wiser performer, although his recent temper tantrums in Europe where he stormed out of a concert in Norway and when he chastised his audience for not clapping on the beat at a performance in Spain show he may still be that spoiled artist we’ve perceived him to be over the past few years.
Bieber, who was once very close to his mom Pattie Mallette who had Bieber when she was just 17 and raised him as a single mom, has revealed in a recent interview with Billboard magazine that their relationship right now is ‘pretty nonexisting’.
“I was distant because I was ashamed. I never wanted my mom to be disappointed in me and I knew she was. We spent some time not talking, so it takes time to rebuild that trust. She’s living in Hawaii now, so it’s hard, but getting better. She’s an amazing woman and I love her.”
I assume that Pattie is letting her son find his own way now that he’s an adult. Child stardom can drastically change a person and it seems that Justin is slowly realizing that he wasn’t perhaps the best person he could be over the past few years. I know even my own kids, who were fans, no longer like him due to his attitude and treatment of fans.
I do hope that Justin is able to repair his relationship with his mom because they were so close until he let his ego and fame take over. Anyone who ever watched his documentary Never Say Never could see just how close their mother and son bond was.
Do you think Justin is to blame for his ‘nonexisting’ relationship with his mom, or as his mom should she be there regardless of how he’s acting?
