Justin Bieber's Mom Finally Comes Clean About What She Thinks of Girlfriend Selena Gomez | 22 Words

It hasn't been totally confirmed but judging from a recent kiss at a hockey game, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are pretty much 100% almost definitely back together, probably. But wait, remember in the Bieber song "Love Yourself" when he drops the actually pretty heart-wrenching insult "my momma don't like you and she likes everyone"?

Obviously it's hard not to imagine it was about Selena, and honestly, the whole I-wrote-a-very-popular-but-kind-of-mean-song-about-you thing seems like it might make getting back together a bit complicated.

Well, fear not, it turns out that lyric was most definitely not about Selena Gomez because according to an interview this week, Justin's mom absolutely adores her.

According to a recent interview with Justin's mom Pattie Mallette, she's always been a big Selena Gomez fan.

Pattie was interviewed at the Justice Speaks Holiday Benefit Luncheon last Saturday where she raved about how much she loves Selena.

According to Pattie, she and Selena share a "special bond."

She told People Magazine, "“I support anything [he does], if he loves her I love her, and I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious. I can’t really speak on their relationship, that’s between them." Sounds like she's super supportive of Justin in general!

She loves Selena, but she admitted she doesn't know everything about Justin and Selena's relationship.

She said, "I don’t know so much about their personal relationship because he doesn’t share a whole lot, but I love her." It can be hard to remember since we've basically watched him grow up from a floppy haired Canadian YouTuber into the styled-hair, tattooed 23-year-old he is today, but Justin is an adult and most adult guys probably don't tell their moms too many specific details about their relationships, no matter how close they are.

The Jelena romance has been a wild ride.

It looks like Justin and Selena are back on again, but the on-again off-again life is nothing new for the pair, who apparently look to couple like Jack and Diane, Ross and Rachel, and Joey and Pacey for relationship inspiration. AKA they break up a lot.

The two were spotted kissing at one of Justin's hockey games, so it seems they are back on again...

Apparently Justin Bieber plays hockey (because he is Canadian and it might be illegal not to?) and he was spotted smooching Selena rink-side in mid-November. So what's exactly going on there...?

Over the years Justin and Selena have broken up and gotten back together several times.

In March of 2011 Selena confirmed they were officially together. Since then, the couple has broken up and reconnected at least five times.

It's nearly impossible to keep up with the couples' status.

Especially because they don't make official announcements, clues have to be gleaned from their Instagrams, songs, and interviews. It's like a full time job trying to figure out if they are dating or not.

And this isn't the first time his mom has gotten involved with their relationship.

In 2014 after Justin was spotted having dinner with Kendall Jenner while he was dating Selena, his mom tweeted a cryptic message that seemed intended for someone in particular. (Kendall, maybe?)

But according to his mom, maybe Justin is ready to put his past behind him.


She said, “I think he’s trying to be somehow normal in such an abnormal world, trying to find that balance," she said. “I feel like he’s growing up and I’m really proud of him."

It's definitely time for Bieber to grow up.

Aside from his on again off again romance with Selena, Justin doesn't have the best track record when it comes to the law. He was arrested for drag racing drunk in January 2014, has been charged with vandalism for spray painting a wall in Brazil, and accused of throwing eggs at his neighbors' house and hitting a limo driver in the back of the head on separate occasions.

Until recently, Selena was dating singer, The Weeknd (real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye).

But the couple split this fall after 10 months together. Which is sad because he seems like a decent dude with cool hair who has likely never been a grown man who throws eggs at his neighbors' house, but okay.

But maybe Justin really has turned over a new leaf.

He's been spotted attending church with Selena and apparently carried a Bible with him to the Justice Speaks benefit. Maybe Bieber is getting some spiritual motivation to be a better person.

We certainly hope Justin's mom is right about him growing up.

Because Selena Gomez has been through a lot this year and she definitely needs someone stable. This summer she had a kidney transplant, which is not a minor operation.

But she also has this adorable puppy so even if things don't work out, she'll be okay, right?

Look how tiny.

In any case, Justin's mom seems to think he's better off with Selena so hopefully it will work out this time.

She said, "“I think anyone with real love in their life is more grounded," said Mallette. “I think there’s so much confusion sometimes and facade in this Hollywood world, and so it’s important for us to find the ones that truly care and stick with them." Good luck, Jelena! We're rooting for you! (But mostly for you to let us pet that puppy).
