Justin Bieber’s mother canceled his cell phone after they had a fight.
Bieber, 16, and his mother, Pattie Mallette, love traveling together, but she recently punished him by cutting off his cell phone.
Bieber shared, “Mom travels with me. We argue yes, I think every parent and son argue, but I love my mom. I think it’s good she travels me, but sometimes I need a break because I’m with her 24/7 but I love her, I like being with her. The other day she canceled my phone plan. We got into an argument about something stupid, and she was like, ‘Give me the phone’ and I was like, ‘No’, so she just went and canceled it.”
Bieber said that he might miss important calls, including those from his mentor, Usher. “If Usher wants to get in touch with me? Then it’s tough,” Bieber admitted to DJ Fearne Cotton of BBC Radio 1.
Even with this incident, Bieber’s mother says she’s proud of her son’s career, even admitting that it kept him out of trouble.
“I think his mother feels that if they were still in Stratford, Ontario, he’d be getting himself into a lot of trouble. Justin doesn’t study the people who made it. He studies the people who haven’t. The general feeling we get is that it had nothing to do with their talent and everything to do with their personal life,” Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun said.
“Like the kids who fall into drugs and destroy their own trajectory. He realises that if he grows up to be a good man, he’s going to be able to handle the pressures that come with a position like this,” Braun continued.
Poor Biebs, being punished like that. I wonder if he has a curfew that prevents him from throwing late night concerts.
