Pattie Mallette Clears Up Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Rumor! [AUDIO]
Most know her as Justin Bieber’s mom, however, she is also an author. Pattie Mallette stopped by the “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest” studio to talk about her journey that she details in her book “Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom,” why she hasn’t has sex since she was 21, and tells us if Justin and girlfriend Selena Gomez are really building their dream home in Tarzana!
Are Justin & Selena Moving To Tarzana?
There were rumors swirling that Justin and Selena had bought a large piece of land in Tarzana, CA and were build their dream house. So, is there any truth to this? “Not that I’m aware of,” Pattie said putting the rumor to rest.
On Raising Justin:
“I just wanted to protect him from all the pain that I went through. So, I was really protective of him, he would maybe say strict, but I wanted to talk to him, I wanted to make sure he understood where our background comes from out parents and addictions and things like that. Just really encouraged him and kept good people around him.”
On Not Having Sex Since She Was 21:
“When we first moved to Atlanta he [Justin] was 14 and I said, ‘I’m going to wait until you’re 18 to start dating, because I want to focus on you.’ And he just turned 18,” she said. “After having Justin as an unwed mom I really wanted to do it right this time and if I get pregnant I want to have two parents in the home. It saves you from getting used up, thrown away.” Pattie also revealed that Justin is “well aware” that she hasn’t has sex since she was 21. “I told him that I made a commitment and I’m going to wait until I’m married.”
Pattie told Ryan that she was ready to start dating again and he had the perfect guy in mind for her…he got Bachelor host Chris Harrison on the phone. Listen to the full interview to hear if they hit it off!
Did She Talk To Justin About The Tough Subjects?
“The first time I actually let him hear me share my story was when he was 12-years old and after that he had some tears and we had some conversation. He asked a bunch of questions and opened it up.”
Pattie’s book “Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom” is available online and in stores now.
