Justin Bieber’s Mom Defends Him Against Selena Gomez’s Mom’s Comments

By  | 

When Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber got back together in November of last year following Selena’s split from The Weeknd, Jelena shippers everywhere rejoiced — but not everyone was happy about their rekindled romance. Selena’s mom Mandy Teefey, an executive producer of 13 Reasons Why, confessed in an interview that she wasn’t all that pleased about Selena’s love life.

Sorry, Mandy, but the heart wants what it wants.

Mandy originally started out as Selena’s manager, but Selena fired her from the position in 2014, prompting many to assume there was mother-daughter tension behind the scenes. However, Mandy clarified to Gossip Cop that “every mother and daughter has disagreements,” and they only made the professional decision in order to strengthen their personal relationship.

According to Mandy, she and Justin haven’t spoken in “years” despite his on-again, off-again (currently on-again) romance with Selena, but despite her feelings about Justin, Mandy says, “Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy.”

There’s nothing worse than when your parents don’t approve of your boyfriend. Mandy also didn’t approve of Selena working with Woody Allen on his latest film A Rainy Day in New York, but she says that didn’t stop her daughter either.

In light of Mandy’s recent comments, Justin’s mom Pattie Mallette posted a loving tribute to her son on Instagram. “I’m so proud of the amazing young man you are, and the young man you are becoming,” she wrote in the caption of a photo of herself with Justin on a boat. “None of us are perfect and never will be, (so we will always need patience and grace for each other), but your genuine growing relationship with Jesus is evident in the choices you are making daily and the good ‘fruit’ you bear.”

She continued, “I admire your character and integrity. You are maturing beautifully and wise beyond your years. You are so funny that I find myself laughing out loud when I’m alone, remembering of something you said or did. And your heart is gold. I love you to the moon and back. #lovemom.”

Pattie ended the caption with, “Ps. Did I mention I was proud of you?” as well as, “#love #happyplace #paradise #vacation.”

While we can’t say that this is for sure a direct response to Mandy’s comments, it seems pretty pointed. Selena does seem to bring out the best in JB!
