Pattie Mallette, Justin Bieber’s mother, is a Canadian scriptwriter and producer in her forties who has been monitoring her son’s musical talents since he was a child.
Pattie was 17 when she gave birth to Justin and was emotionally distraught because she was still single.
These facts about one of the world’s most famous stars are probably unknown to you. His mother’s journey was difficult, but she is extremely proud of her son.
“My childhood was dominated by se**al abuse and violence. I was first molested around age 3. My offenders were a male babysitter, the grandfather of one of my friends, and allegedly mature neighborhood children.”
“I was s**ually violated so often that it became normal as the years passed,” says Justin Bieber’s mother.
“My childhood was dominated by s**ual abuse and violence, and I was first molested around the age of three,” Mallette says.
She began using alcohol, marijuana, and acid when she was only 14 years old. She also began robbing stores. She was expelled for committing vandalism by setting fire to a school restroom.
She began dating Jeremy Bieber at age 15, and the relationship lasted four years. She ran away from home when she was 16 and has since made a living by selling drugs and committing minor thefts.
During this time, she struggled with feelings of isolation and suicidal ideation. After attempting suicide at 17, she was admitted to a mental hospital. She converted to Christianity there.
Mallette made an effort after leaving the hospital to contact former coworkers who did not share her newly discovered religion. Jeremy Bieber and she have re-established contact.
A pregnancy occurred six months later. Mallette gave birth to her son, Justin, on March 1, 1994, in London, Ontario. Mallette and Jeremy Bieber maintained their relationship after the birth of their child for a short time before splitting up.
After two years of demonstrating them to her, Mallette encouraged her son’s musical interests. She entered Justin in the 2007 Stratford Star talent competition when he was still a teenager, and he placed second singing “So Sick” by Ne-Yo.
Mallette posted a video of the performance on YouTube for her family and friends to see. As her son’s performances gained popularity online, she did the same for subsequent ones.
Her autobiography, “Nowhere but Up,” was released in September 2012 by the Christian publishing house Revell.
Mallette’s difficult upbringing is detailed in the book, as is her journey to overcome abandonment and single parenting to build a strong faith and a life full of grace and optimism.
It debuted at No. 17 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Several international magazines have published book reviews.
Despite Justin’s unconventional upbringing, his mother assured him that he would be able to provide the same for his children.
