Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez may have the ultimate celebrity on-and-off-again relationship, but despite their constant breakups, the Bieb’s mom approves of Miss Gomez. Pattie Mallette – mother of X Factor mentor Justin Bieber — had plenty to say about her son’s relationship with Selena.
Pattie Mallette made plenty of mistakes as a teen but has since been able to turn her life around and be a great mother to one of today’s most popular celebrities. But despite her son’s high-flying lifestyle, Pattie’s never stopped being a concerned parent. The famous mom says that it bothers her to hear news of her son partying, but that, given his adult status, there’s not much she can do. “It’s hard, you know, as a mom of an 18-year-old because that’s the time when you just gotta start letting go. And, you know, I had to make some of my own mistakes. I gotta kind of let go and let him make some of his own mistakes and just hope that I put all the right things in him.”
One area in which Pattie has learned to let go? Worrying about her son’s relationship status. When asked about Selena Gomez, Pattie complimented the singer and former Wizards of Waverly Place star for being a ”sweetheart” before explaining, “I have no idea if they’re on-again, off-again. It’s a constant thing. Today I’m not sure where they stand. I try to stay out of it. He’s 18. He doesn’t want me getting involved in his romantic life…. I just try and support whatever he’s wanting.”
It’s okay Pattie, nobody really knows what the deal is with Jelena!
