Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, the one-off love birds, have one constant in their lives: the love of Justin’s mum, Pattie Mallette.
The Canadian author and film producer has spoken of a ‘special bond’ between her and 25-year-old Selena, but has revealed that Justin keeps his romances at bay.
‘I don’t know so much about their personal relationship because he doesn’t share a whole lot, but I love her,’ Pattie, 41, has spilled.
‘I support anything [that Justin 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’.
Justin, 23, and Selena were reportedly back together in the autumn, following the advice and encouragement of Justin’s pastor, Carl Lentz.
Pattie was speaking at the Justice Speaks Holiday Benefit Luncheon in L.A, where Justin was also in attendance to support his mum.
Justice Speaks is a California-based organisation which seeks to end human trafficking internationally.
Justin was conversational with photographers when he arrived, and always carried a bible with him.
Pattie also said: ‘I think he’s just keeping his focus on God, and really trying to figure out what counts and what matters.’
‘I feel like he’s growing up and I’m really proud of him’.
Justin and Selena are said to have rekindled their romance earlier this year when Selena broke it off with The Weeknd.
Selena and The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – were dating from January to October 2017.
