Teenage singing sensation Justin Bieber is one of the biggest stars on the face of the Earth, following his rise to superstardom after being signed by Scooter Braun who spotted him on YouTube. Now, Justin Bieber's mother Pattie Mallette has opened up about her sons humble upbringing, admitting that it brought the two of them closer together.
Mallette was interviewed by Parade magazine, when she revealed, "He had his whole childhood where we were just together, and he didn't start his other crazy life until he was a teenager, so we really bonded through just being together."
She added, "I was on government assistance, working two jobs just to try to put food on the table, and really struggling through to make it. I just did whatever I could do to be the best mum I could be. I think that he values my opinion."
Justin Bieber has gone off the rails a little over the past few months and just last week he was kicked out of a nightclub, after allegedly being served alcohol while underage. There was also a video footage of Justin Bieber peeing in a mop bucket in a restaurant. However, Pattie Mallette insists that the media have sensationalized his recent issues.
