Justin Bieber’s Mom Talks ‘Absentee’ Father Rumors, Sexual Abuse + Early Pregnancy

Justin Bieber‘s mother Pattie Mallette recently appeared on ‘Ellen’ and ‘TODAY,’ revealing that her ex/the Biebs’ dad, Jeremy, has always been in the singer’s life and that she was sexually abused at a young age. She spoke about her early pregnancy with Justin and how he’s been her biggest blessing in life.

First on ‘Ellen,’ Mallette wanted to clear up the idea that Jeremy Bieber was an absentee dad. She said that her relationship with him was toxic, since they were teenagers and things were constantly “on again and off again” for them. But she revealed, “As we got older, we both grew. [Justin's] dad has been around since he was a baby. Some people think he came along when he became famous. That’s not true. His dad has always been there. He’s a good dad.”

Ellen also probed Mallette about Justin’s girlfriend, Selena Gomez, asking, “Do you adore her?,” to which Mama Biebs was quick to reply, ”How can you not like her? She is so sweet. She is good for him and they are great together.”

Mallette, 37, also revealed that she is chaste, and that she signed a paper in which she vowed to remain celibate until she gets married. She even had someone witness the “contract” she signed for herself. She also admitted that she planned to wait until her son turned 18 to date again. Well, he’s 18 now, so it’s time to find Mama Bieber a man.

Later, Mallette appeared on the ‘TODAY’ show, where the discussion topics took a turn for the serious. In her new book, ‘Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom,’ Mallette talks about being sexually abused at a young age. She told Kathie Lee Gifford (via Huffington Post), “I’ve learned it’s normal and natural for anybody who’s been through sexual abuse to carry that shame and that blame and feel like there’s something wrong with you. So I definitely carried that.”

She then talked about getting pregnant with Justin at the age of 18, saying, “I just knew I couldn’t [abort it]. I just knew I couldn’t. I just know I had to keep him.” She continued, “And, do the best. I — you know, I didn’t know how I was going to do it. But I just knew that I couldn’t — I couldn’t abort. I had to do my best. I had to see what I could do. And I was determined to do whatever it took.”

What a strong, inspiring woman. After we got a little teary-eyed listening to her story, we smiled after she said that Justin’s crying actually sounded like singing when he was a baby! How crazy is that?!
