Justin Bieber had a ‘blowup with his mom’ & threw a tantrum over her book

Justin Bieber

Mercifully, we haven’t had occasion to post any Justin Bieber photos for over a week, but here’s a new picture from his Instagram account of the Biebs (age 18) and rapper Lil Twist (age 20) enjoying “Beers in the jungle” in South Africa. Of course, the legal drinking age in that country is 18, so Biebs is home free on that end, but I’m sure he doesn’t stop imbibing once he passes through US customs, right? According to a new report from the Sun, Bieber doesn’t stop at drinking either. The Sun set up some undercover investigators who caught Leon “Starino” Anderson offering to sell MDNA to their hidden camera. Starino is supposedly Bieber’s “right-hand man” who was present at Bieb’s side throughout his recent tour of international terror. If it tells you anything at all, Starino has also been photographed alongside Rihanna and Cara Delevingne. So yeah, Bieber doesn’t stop at beer or sizzurp and pot.

Meanwhile, there is a new story in this week’s Enquirer says that Justin isn’t exactly the most perfect, supportive son to his mother, Pattie Mallette. Poor Pattie raised this little hellion on his own, and he repaid her by throwing a tantrum over her memoir and refused to appear alongside her on the cover of the book. Here are the details:

Patti Mallette

You’d better not cross Justin Bieber — even if you’re his mom! The pop sensation has always been close to his mother, Pattie Mallette, 38, but according to a recently released tell-all, Justin put his foot down when Pattie wanted to use a picture of him on the cover of her 2012 book, Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom, to draw sales.

“When Justin found out, he refused to go along wiht it, and they had a series of arguments,” says Marc Shapiro, the author of Legally Bieber: Justin Bieber at 18, who adds that one night the fighting became so intense that Justin’s longtime manager, Scooter Braun, was forced to step in and plead with the 19-year-old pop star to let it go.

“Ultimately, Justin compromised and agreed to a couple of press interviews with Pattie,” says the author. “But he was upset.” Despite the hard feelings, Justin reluctantly penned a foreward for Pattie’s memoir — and now all is forgiven. “To see it on paper means a lot to me,” says Pattie. “I melted.”

[From In Touch, print edition, May 27, 2013]

Naturally, Justin’s creepy manager, Scooter Braun has already spoken with Gossip Cop and laughed off” this report, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true at all. In fact, I see it as an indication that it probably is true if Braun saw fit to deny the report instead of merely pitching a Twitter fit over it.

Here are some more pictures of Bieber’s wonderful, beer-laden adventure in the jungle of South Africa. The little brat had better not even think about trying to make that elephant his pet. He can’t even bother to take care of a monkey.

  2. Champ says:

    Pop stars using hard drugs………why whatever next! I am shocked. Just totally stunned by this very surprising news.

  3. EscapedConvent says:

    I’m a non-violent person in all things, but this: If Bieber gets anywhere near that elephant, I will go medieval on his ass.

  4. Micki says:

    So he had a tantrum because he’s otherwise so private, tight-lipped guy.

    On another note- He’s 18 FGS! Her book covers what? From the first diaper to the first album “tell all”?

    • jwoolman says:

      To be honest, she was with him non-stop only until he was 18. So it does make sense that her story would be rather complete by now. She’s fund-raising for centers helping with difficult pregnancies using the book – she almost aborted the dear little fellow and lived in a place like that for part of her pregnancy. She was quite young. Her story actually might be interesting.

  5. Hakura says:

    What would I give, to have the chance to have the amazing experience of seeing South Africa? (Somehow, I don’t see myself chillin’ on the Savannah with a beer in my hand, snappin’ selfies as the elephants wandered by). The world can be so unfair.

    I don’t know the whole story, like what she even plans to talk about in this ‘bio’, other than what everyone knows (whether they wanted to or not) already. But asking to use a picture, what a ridiculous thing to throw a tantrum about, to your MOM? I wonder if he sat in the middle of the floor & kicked & screamed?

    I just, can’t even, with this maddening little douchenugget.

    • C. C. Cedras says:

      FWIW, when you’re in the bush in SA taking the evening game drive (and everyone is taking photos of the game and each other) you ALWAYS stop at an arranged place for “sundowners” — cocktails. Back in the day, gin and tonics were the drink of choice. Still Bieber is an obnoxious little twit as his selfie makes so clear.

      • Hakura says:

        @C.C. Cedras – I stand corrected. At least having to hear about the little twerp wasn’t a total waste of time, I learned something new! =)

        Now that I think on it, a little buzz wouldn’t be such a bad thing (for those of us able to control ourselves, at least). Though this kid is beyond annoying, regardless of his blood-alcohol level. (Unless of course it contributed to his passing out).

        (Edit – I was going to say: “At least having to hear about the little twerp’s adventures in the bush wasn’t a total waste of time…” … But I’m too big a perv, & was immediately horrified by the possible implications (& the images they’d bring to mind). xD

    i really dont want to see another justine bieber story until someone can report a happy ending for that poor monkey

    what doesn’t this child throw a tantrum about?

  8. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    Not being able to drink until you are 21 is messed up. America is weird.

    • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

      Also, I thought that pic was of Barbara Streisand at first and spent a full ten seconds wondering what that had to do with the story….I know it’s eraly, but that really looks like Barbara.

    • FLORC says:

      JJJ
      Not being ale to drink until 21 is kind of messed up, but our youth is not like the youth in other countries. The odds of American youths being allowed to drink at younger ages legally are they will still drink to excess. We’re not brought up exposed to small amounts really. I was being 1st generation American. My peers though went nuts.

      • Emily says:

        Our culture is definitely totally messed up over alcohol. But part of the problem is probably that the legal drinking age is so late.

        No one waits that long. Okay, now someone is going to show up and say they did, but they’re the first person I’ve met who did, if so. I waited until college (17) to see what being drunk was like, and I was the most goody-goody nerdy girl you’d ever find.

      • VioletCrumble says:

        Meanwhile, in Australia, some health professionals and law enforcement experts are talking about lobbying to RAISE our legal drinking age to 21 from 18. Alcohol-related crime of every description – violence, sexual assault, homophobic bashings – you name it, as well as car crashes, hit-and-runs, accidents – such as literally falling under a bus, and serious injury, are at the heart of these people being very committed about finding an alternative to the out-of-control alcohol-fueled messes that doctors and police have to deal with every single weekend.

        Given Emily’s comment – that most American kids start drinking much younger than 21, say about 17 – you will understand the concern here, as we have overwhelming evidence that children as young as 12 binge-drink on a regular basis. This is not the place to debate the dire consequences of such behaviour in children, but I’m sure you’ll all be able to work it out.

        We also know that brain development continues until the mid-20s, and the damaging effects alcohol has on the developing brain. I think the US has it about right.

      • Leen says:

        Florc, in my cultural, drinking is a big ‘eh’. It isn’t looked on favourly as we still have religion in our elements. Yet the drinking age is 18, rarely enforced (I was never once ID’d) and things are fine. You don’t get drunken messes on the streets. So in that retrospect, I still don’t understand how drinking is 21 in the US.

    • Hakura says:

      @Jackie – Agree totally. It’s always amazed me that @18, we can send soldiers to war to die for their country, but they can’t even legally have a freaking drink.

      Not to mention the fact that you can smoke @18, an activity guaranteed to cause (or at least cause risk to skyrocket for) cancer (even to light-to-moderate smokers). But we have to wait until 21 to drink, an activity that (to my knowledge anyway, correct me if I’m wrong), doesn’t (automatically) cause diseases if done in moderation & not abused.

      Doesn’t make any sense. Would’ve changed long ago if alcohol were as majorly taxed as tobacco products.

      • jwoolman says:

        The argument that the drinking age should be lowered to match combat and marriage age forgets that the statistics are pretty poor for teenage marriages and that the military wants them young and stupid and easily convinced to go off and kill a bunch of strangers. They learned in the Vietnam War that men in their twenties were more aware of their own mortality and asked too many questions. Look at the younger brother in the Boston Marathon bombings – 19 years old, easily convinced by bonkers older brother to kill and maim strangers in pursuit of a noble cause. That’s what the military wants, kids young enough to convince of a particular world view and with loads of energy that can be channeled into killing without too many questions. And that’s why there will be no educational deferments in the next draft. The same lack of impulse control and judgment and life experience that makes young men typically bad drivers (even worse when fueled by alcohol) is useful for cannon fodder. Despite the recruitment ads making it seem that the military is a great way to learn leadership skills and get an education- don’t ever forget that in a country always at war like ours, they really need a good stock of cannon fodder. Don’t need many leaders, and the training for most will be limited (so they can be easily replaced) and involve procedures and systems that have no counterpart in civilian life. Any maturation seen in kids who come back can be attributed to being a few years older and away from the old environment, not the military. A few years with Habitat for Humanity would have a better effect.

    MDNA?

    Psst Bedhead: It’s MDMA. MDNA is a Madonna album.

    Don’t fix it though, it’s actually much better that way. The mental image I’m getting is absolutely hilarious.

      I completely agree.

      But I also don’t like the idea of the mother selling books about her son, and wanting him on the cover to boost sales.

      I think they’re both idiots.

      • ZinJoJo says:

        I think what’s cracking me up the most about this post is the title of Patti’s book, “The story of Justin Beiber’s mom”. Ha ha ha, who wants to read a book about Justin Beiber’s mom??? I don’t know why, but I find this SO funny.

        And he’s a twit and when I think of him throwing a tantrum, I think of that photo of his bodyguard lifting him into the car in London — you know the one — it’s hilarious.

      • Erinn says:

        Perfect imagery! I’m pretty sure the only reason she wanted a picture of the kid on the book is because nobody cares about a book about Bieb’s mom.

      • Hakura says:

        @Erinn – “…But I also don’t like the idea of the mother selling books about her son, and wanting him on the cover to boost sales.

        Yeah. It totally reeks of PM-Kris. It tries to imply in the title that it’s about her life, but who the hell would be interested in hearing about her life? Anyone (stupid enough) to buy it is only doing so for what’s written about JB.

    Can’t get over the fact his rep’s name is Scooter Braun.

  14. Faye says:

    What is MDMA?

    Reading that linked article about that dealer to the stars made me sick. What would make someone do that for a living? And what is wrong with these stars who have freaking everything, but they have to piss away their lives on drugs?

    As for the Biebs — well, when you have a child as a teenager and then encourage him to believe he’s a super-special snowflake STAR, don’t be surprised when he acts like, well, the Biebs.

    • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

      MDMA is fun. Think what you want about drugs, but people do them because they are fun (at least at first). It is that simple, and judging people’s value based on just that is weird, if you know anything about drugs–and you don’t even have to do them to learn.

      • Faye says:

        Is this post a joke?

        There are many, many ways you can have fun without taking an (illegal) substance that is addictive and can destroy your health and your brain. Just a few that I engage in –playing tennis, reading, swimming, dancing, watching old movies. I certainly do judge the values of people who are so pathetic they need chemicals to find enjoyment and pleasure, and who pursue that fun knowing it could make addicts of them. I judge even more people who peddle drugs to others knowing they’re helping to feed addictions that can literally destroy lives, not only of the addicts but of their families.

      • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

        Is being self-righteous fun? And missing the point?

        I was just suggesting you to have empathy, not expouse all the ways in which you consider yourself superiour to others.

      • Faye says:

        No, *you* missed the point, entirely. My original point was that it was incomprehensible to me that people who had so much would risk it for something as transient as a drug-related high. Your juvenile response was that it was “fun” – to which I responded there are many, many other ways of having fun that don’t involve something so harmful to you and others. Perfectly on point. Maybe that was too much for your drug-addled brain to comprehend.

        And if thinking it is illogical to just blithely call drugs “fun” when there are many other ways to have it makes me self-righteous and “superior,” well, I’d rather be those things than someone like you. And FYI, you know nothing about me, and all I can say is that you, unlike me, must never have seen what drugs can do to a person and their innocent family members.

        As for empathy, I have plenty of it for people who are genuinely addicted and are making good faith efforts to heal themselves. I have none for idiots who take drugs for “fun” and downplay how truly harmful they are.

        You can respond or not. I won’t be looking at this thread anymore, because it honestly makes me sick that there are people going around making drugs sound like no big deal.

      • Lucrezia says:

        Faye: do you also judge those who drink coffee or tea? Because MDMA is as addictive and dangerous as caffeine. (It’s a little easier to overdose on, but it’s less damaging to the body – caffeine is nasty!)

      • blaize says:

        Meh. There are some drugs that are deadly and cause people to hurt/kill people, then there are other drugs that are tame-like pot. Whether or not someone uses the drugs in the second category is a matter of health and personal choice, not morality. Do you judge the person who drinks alcohol? Do you judge the person who smokes cigarettes? Do you judge the person who consumes unhealthy junk food and goes to fast food restaurants? If not, then why judge the person who uses some tame drug?

      • Glaughy says:

        Thanks for saying this. I can’t believe all the pearl-clutching going on around here, first about Reese having an afternoon cocktail at lunch, now this. A little E, pot, whatever, it’s a natural part of experimenting and growing up. Different generation, different opinion on drugs/substances?

        And just because it’s illegal does not make it morally wrong. Jaywalking is illegal. Pot is illegal and alcohol is fully legal – how does that even make sense?

      • gg says:

        Jackie is right. People do them because at first they have “fun” doing them and they don’t care about damaging their brains. Entitled boredom is enough of a reason for The Bieve. Then hopefully they learn not to do chemicals like this, or they get older and realize they’re not snapping back like they used to.

      • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

  17. Lauren says:

    Just have to say this that whenever Bieber is back in Canada he’d be used to drinking as well. Nowhere in Canada do we have a drinking age of 21. Some provinces it varies between 18/19 but him being is SA and drinking is of no shock or consequence to him I am sure when in his native country he can do the same freely. Also I think it’s MDNA (ecstasy) and not MDMA.

  18. NerdMomma says:

    I’m not letting his mother off the hook on this one. He’s 18 years old and his mother is writing the story of being his mom. She’s just using him, and asking to use him further by asking for a picture and a forward for her book. I think he has the right to feel angry about that.

    Also, as you say, she raised this hellion. You reap what you sow.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yeah I definitely agree with this. His mother is absolutely using him. She sees him as the cash cow, so she deserves any form of backlash from him.

      Reminds me of Hayden Panetierre’s character in ‘Nashville’ whose mother uses her for resources. It’s sad. And you see it all the time IRL..Katy Perry, Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears, LiLo, Kim K…all with pushy, user parents. And ppl wonder why most of them are messed up as adults.

    • april says:

      She epitomized her religion to sell this book and since then it’s bitten her in the butt as far as Justin’s behavior. Not good to sell your religiosity before we even know how his kid will end up.

      I don’t blame Justin for not wanting his photo on the book. What 17-18 yr. old would want that?

    If I was famous and one of my parents wanted to write a tell-all book about me, I think I would be a little annoyed. It might even cause an argument. But I wouldn’t throw a tantrum about it. Some celebrity parents are really nasty and vindictive toward their famous children, but I don’t think this tell-all book is one of THOSE books.

    I wish he would use his name and “influence” to bring attention to the disgusting elephant poaching issue in Africa. Pretty soon those magnificent creatures are going to be extinct, all for the sale of their Ivory.
    I doubt he’d do something like that but it would be nice.

    • Hakura says:

      @Macey – Unfortunately, judging from his actions (& lack thereof) recently, I don’t get the impression that he gives a flying f*ck about animals/other living things. They’re just something else he feels ‘entitled’ to use for his amusement.

    i REALLY have a problem with this woman. She made a statement to a prolife group that said something along the lines of getting pregnant at a young age and deciding to keep the baby which ended up being the genius that is Justin Beiber. His fans are so stupid that they would probably take this message to heart and the last thing this country needs is teenage beliebers BREEDING.

    • jwoolman says:

      So? She really did consider abortion. She fundraises for places that help women and girls with difficult pregnancies because one of those helped her decide not to abort and she’s very happy about that. That’s not a bad reason to want to encourage others not to abort. It’s a miserable method of birth control because you always will wonder what-if. The fact that at least half of conceptions will naturally lead to miscarriage doesn’t seem comforting. Yes, it needs to be legal because no one has the right to force a woman to remain pregnant against her will. But it’s not wrong to provide other options and support for those who choose not to abort and to describe your own experiences, which is all she’s doing. If we must have labels, pro-life doesn’t have to mean anti-choice. In the US we are afflicted by a noisy minority of fundamentalists who color the discussion, but I know many Christians who are very clear that abortion must be kept legal but at the same time believe abortion is a bad choice.

  34. jwoolman says:

    I don’t care what he drinks in South Africa as long as he stays away from the wildlife. But here in the USA, we have a horrendous drunk driver problem and kids start driving legally here at 16. It is not unusual for high school kids to own a car and be working part-time to support it (which is a big problem since their schoolwork often suffers). Americans drive much more often and further distances than people in more compact areas such as Europe, where drunks are likely to be attempting to walk home or taking public transit which isn’t even available in many areas of the US. I’ve always assumed the drinking age has been pushed higher because of that, in an attempt to reduce deaths and injuries. Young males are not very good drivers in the first place (insurance rates are very high for them) and have lousy judgment and impulse control in general (consider Justin as an example of all three). Add alcohol to the mix and the result isn’t pretty. The statistics here are pretty gruesome. Even half the fatal car accidents involve a drunk driver in some that I’ve seen for individual states. And it’s usually the non-drunk people who get killed while the drunk wobbles away. Hulk Hogan’s son had been drinking when he had his illegal road race that ruined his passengers life (and seat belts wouldn’t even have helped, contrary to Hulk’s whining, and I suspect that Junior was taught to buckle up after an accident and unbuckle his unconscious passenger for liability reasons-the kid lied about everything else, so I doubt he was telling the truth about that ).

    jwoolman, thank you for this important information. This is a topic often and vociferously debated in our home, with all manner of participants. I completely agree with everything you’ve offered.
