Bieber's Battery Case
Justin Bieber's neighbor accuses the singer of battery.
Mother knows best.

In a new interview with E! News, Pattie Malletteadmits that she has little control over her son Justin Bieber.

“Of course I pray for him and I encourage him,” the 37-year-old mother said about her son’s possible battery charges. “I can’t really speak to how he handles that part of his life.”

Mallette also revealed that she didn’t hear about the legal troubles from her son. “Sometimes, I learn about things on the internet the same as everybody else and that was the case this time.”

So what does the single mother have to say for her son’s bad behavior over the last few weeks?

Mallette told Access Hollywood Live: “I’ve just gotta let go a little and let him make some of those decisions. He’s growing up. He’s 19. He’s not my baby.”

Bieber’s recent antics have landed him in hot water lately and it seems he’s been spiraling since his January split from girlfriend of two years Selena Gomez.

Between being kicked out of a Paris hotel after claims of bad behavior to verbally attacking a photographer in London, the “Boyfriend” singer is earning a reputation as a bad boy.

But if there’s someone that can ease his worries it’s Gomez herself. On Wednesday, Bieber was spotted visiting her Los Angeles home for a few hours before heading to Munich for the rest of his worldwide tour.
