Justin Bieber ’s mom Pattie Mallette
opens up about her changing relationship with her son in a new interview with People magazine.
Asked about the teen superstar showing more independence since turning 18 last year, the single mom
acknowledges, “When your kids hit a certain age your parenting style changes and it is hard letting go.”
“His life was my life and now I’ve had to let him go a little bit and let him be independent,” continues Mallette. ”It is hard to not be able to control everything that your adult child does.”
And while Bieber’s mother used to travel with the singer wherever his career took him, these days the pair spend much time apart.
“I text and call him every day. I definitely want to know everything that he is doing and what he is going through so I try to talk to him as much as he’ll let me,” Mallette tells the magazine,
adding, “I mean, he’s on tour and being pulled in a million different directions but we talk as much as he is able.”
The Nowhere But Up author goes on to admit, “A lot of people might think that I have my head in the sand or that I am oblivious to the things my son is doing.”
She continues, ”I know who my son is and I don’t always agree with every single thing that he does but I don’t necessarily have to address that with everyone else.”
“He’s my son and I have to respect he is not going to want me going around being ‘that mom’ talking about his behavior,” says Mallette.

Lady Gaga has again slammed former pal Perez Hilton , calling him “sick” and claiming he “harasses me.”
On Friday, the hit singer told fans to “ignore” the blogger after she revealed on Twitter that he had previously sent her a text “of me in a wheelchair with
the words KARMA written across,” following her hip injury.
But Gaga was far from done with Perez.
On Sunday, she tweeted, “ @perezhilton STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!! ”
And that’s not all.
Gaga later wrote, “ DO I NEED TO BE SHOT IT IN THE HEAD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HARASSES ME HAS GONE TOO FAR? IM A HUMAN BEING .”
Earlier in the week, Perez tweaked Gaga on Twitter, repeatedly pointing out unfavorable sales statistics for her single “Applause” and unfavorably comparing her to Katy Perry , with whom Gaga expressed solidarity last weekend.
When her fans began to tear into Perez, Gaga tweeted, “ Please monsters do not be affected by someone like this NOTHING merits this kind of hatred. Im ok & I always survive. Ignore him. Just Dance .”
