Justin Bieber is no longer close with his mother Pattie Mallette.
The singer gave an interview with Billboard Magazine. He admits he is no longer a momma’s boy. He and Pattie are estranged.
Pattie had Justin when she was 17. She raised her son alone. She is credited with nurturing his talent from a young age. The pair were inseparable at the start of Justin’s career.
But something changed. Justin and Pattie are no longer joined at the hip. Justin says it’s his fault. He was a bad son. Staying away from his mother was easier than confronting the truth.
After being so close to his mother growing up Justin says their relationship now is “pretty nonexisting” (his words).
“I was distant because I was ashamed,” Justin admitted. “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.”
