Bieber's mom stands up for him

15 July 2013, 18:43

Los Angeles - Justin Bieber's mother thinks he is “getting a bad rap”.

The 19-year-old popstar, whose latest indiscretions involve peeing in a mop bucket and shouting ''fuck Bill Clinton'' and partying at an over-21 nightclub, doesn't always make the best decision according to his mother Pattie Mallette, but she believes he is still a good person.

She told Bravo's Watch What Happens Live: “I definitely think he's getting a bad rap, but I'm also not naive to think that my child is perfect and making all the best decisions of his life. He knows what I disagree with, and he knows all the things that I'm really proud of him for, too. I mean, people don't talk about all the great things he does every day.

“Every night before a show, he meets with Make-a-Wish kids. He goes to sick kids' hospitals. He visits with them and takes his time. He gives back to charities.”

She previously revealed that she thinks Justin will grow up and eventually get his life back on track.
She recently said: “My son is not a public figure to me, he is my son. I can't predict what's going to be in the headlines.

“Justin has always been someone who has to do things his way. And I have to be able to believe he will do the right thing and he will come out on top.”
