Justin Bieber's mom just revealed how she really feels about Selena Gomez
As fans all over the world continue to rejoice at the fact that Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez have rekindled their romance, more stories from those close to the couple continue to emerge. The two pop stars seem very much in love with one another, with them making several public appearances while out on dates and appearing extremely happy and comfortable.
For Bieber, this comfort and serenity is a stark change compared the last few days of his career, which have been tumultuous, to say the least. Bieber has been the center of controversy for a number of reasons over the last few years, with the singer having run-ins with the paparazzi, fans and the police. However, appearing alongside his mother at an event for Justice Speaks - a charity that aims to put an end to sex trafficking - Bieber seemed happier than ever before.
Speaking to the press regarding her son's shift in temperament, Pattie Mallette said:
“I think he’s just keeping his focus on God, and really trying to figure out what counts and what matters”
Mallette said about how the 'Despacito' singer is doing, adding that he is trying to find balance in his life and learn how to deal with the constant pressures of fame. “I think he’s trying to be somehow normal in such an abnormal world, trying to find that balance,” she said. “I feel like he’s growing up and I’m really proud of him.”
Unsurprisingly, Mallette was asked about the rekindled romance between Bieber and Gomez, but she remained coy about the whole thing.
“I don’t know so much about their personal relationship because he doesn’t share a whole lot, but I love her. I support anything [he does], if he loves her I love her, and I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious. I can’t really speak on their relationship, that’s between them"
While Bieber's mother refused to go into the specifics of the relationship with Gomez, she did say that the love in his life is keeping him "more grounded".
“I think anyone with real love in their life is more grounded,” said Mallette. “I think there’s so much confusion sometimes and facade in this Hollywood world, and so it’s important for us to find the ones that truly care and stick with them.”
A source close to the couple previously told PEOPLE that the couple are trying to keep things relatively "low key", with them trying to avoid the "chaos" of being a high profile couple.
“They are great and very happy,” said the source. “Justin canceled his tour to take care of his mental health and he wants to continue to focus on this. He didn’t like the chaos,” the Bieber source continued, adding that “they agreed to stay more low-key.”
It seems like Bieber is finally on the right path after years of trouble. Still, imagine what you would be like if you were that young with that much money - you can see how he went astray.
