Justin Bieber hasn't been able to catch a break since his arrest in Miami last month. With everything that has happened with the "Confident" musician lately, a lot of people in his life have been increasingly concerned about his behavior — especially his mom, Pattie Mallette.
A source close to Pattie told E! News exactly what she's been thinking lately, and it sounds like no matter how close she holds on to her son, she "can't make his decisions for him."
"As any caring mother would be, Pattie is genuinely concerned for Justin, and she has said in many interviews before that she doesn't have her head in the clouds and keeps in very close touch with Justin," the source said. "She talks with him almost every day, which is likely more than any mom and a 19-year-old son...and she is in the public eye dealing with all of this."
Both Pattie and Justin's dad, Jeremy, have been accused of enabling their son's recent behavior and letting him get away with too much, but the source revealed that isn't the case.
"Pattie has a great relationship with Justin," the source continued. "He knows where she stands on the decisions he's making in his life. He knows what she is proud of and what she has serious discussions with him about. Pattie never makes excuses for her son, but she is not going to turn on him for the approval or opinion of the world."
