Justin Bieber’s mum Pattie Mallette is “genuinely concerned” for her son.
The Canadian pop star has been charged with multiple criminal offences in two countries within the past month.
And apparently his mother Pattie is taking every measure she can to ensure he gets back on the right track.
"As any caring mother would be, Pattie is genuinely concerned for Justin, and she has said in many interviews before that she doesn't have her head in the clouds and keeps in very close touch with Justin,” a source told E! News.
“She talks with him almost every day, which is likely more than any mom and a 19-year-old son...and she is in the public eye dealing with all of this."
Although it is claimed Pattie has taken a passive role in Justin’s life, new reports dismiss this as outright hearsay.
She has purportedly been laying down the law with Justin from the moment she noticed his reckless behaviour.
"As any mom of an adult child, Pattie is holding him close and talking to him about everything, but she can't make his decisions for him," the insider said.
"Pattie has a great relationship with Justin. He knows where she stands on the decisions he's making in his life. He knows what she is proud of and what she has serious discussions with him about."
Justin is being investigated for allegedly causing $20,000 of damage to a neighbour's property in Calabasas, California, by throwing eggs at it. He was also arrested for DUI in Miami, had to hand himself into Canadian cops over claims he assaulted a limousine driver, and was allegedly abusive to a flight attendant.
