Justin Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette, stopped by the “Today” show on Thursday and talked about what it’s like watching her 18-year-old son make some tough teenage decisions in the world’s spotlight.
“It’s tough letting go and letting our kids make the mistakes that they need to make,” Mallette told Savannah Guthrie. “I just have to trust that he’s made good decisions in the past and hopefully he’s learned from some of my mistakes.”
In just the past month the “Boyfriend” singer has been plagued by rumors that he has been drinking “sizzurp,” smoking weed, and that he cheated on girlfriend Selena Gomez.
As for Gomez, it seems like Justin Bieber’s mom would be happy if her son and his ex-girlfriend worked things out.
“I just try and support whatever he’s wanting,” Mallette said. “I think [Gomez is] a sweetheart and whatever they decide is great.”
Bieber and Gomez spent time together last weekend and are both currently in New York City. She’s in town for Fashion Week (although there has been some drama with that) while he’s hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
“I think we’re both nervous,” Mallette said about the hosting and performing gig. “He’s been rehearsing all week and practicing and helping write scripts, he’s excited.”
So will Gomez be in the audience to support her ex? These two can't seem to make a clean break from each other, so don’t be surprised if she’s seen hanging around in the audience or backstage.
