Pattie Mallette, Justin Bieber's mother, has supposedly refused to admit that her son needs help despite his recent arrest in Miami for driving under influence without a valid license.
Presenter Will.i.am hugs Pattie Mallette, mother of Justin Bieber, after Bieber won the award for artist of the year at the 40th American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California, November 18, 2012.
A source said that as far as Mallette is concerned the Baby hitmaker can do no wrong, the Mirror reported.
The insider asserted that the teen icon is a real mummy's boy and she would be devastated if that ever changed.
Even though the label boss insisted that Bieber needs urgent help, Mallette is keen to not be seen as looking to rein him in, the source added.
Meanwhile, troubled pop sensation Justin Bieber has taken to Twitter to thank his father for his support.
The pop icon praised Jeremy Bieber as the greatest father in the world" and thanked him for the support following his arrest for driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving without a license after an alleged drag race in Miami last week, reported Contactmusic.
Justin, who is currently spending time with his family in his native of Canada - posted a black and white photo of his father with the caption, "I have the greatest Dad in the world, he has taught me how to love, learn, and stay true to myself. I will forever be grateful because he was my superhero."
Justin, whose father was believed to be with him at the time of his arrest, also took the time to thank Dan Mathieson, the Mayor of his local town Stratford, whose kind words featured in a newspaper had resonated with the 19-year-old singer.
He added: "Never forget where you came from or those who supported you before anyone else. Still the small town kid. Thanks."
However, mom Mallette is said to have told pals that her son has always been someone who has to do things his way, and he will do the right thing and come out on top.
Pattie supposedly added that people don't talk about all the great things he does every day like giving back to charities.
