Justin Bieber's relationship with on-and-off again girlfriend Selena Gomez is continuously in headlines and his mother admits that she cannot keep up with it.
Pattie Mallette, singer Justin Bieber's mom, recently spoke about whether her son, 19, and Gomez,20, were back together again.
"It depends what day it is. I can't keep up," Mallette said on "FOX & Friends."
Although singer Bieber and actress Gomez have been breaking up and getting back together since last year, has spoken positively about her son's on-and-off again girlfriend in the past.
When appearing on the "Today" show earlier this year, Mallette gave Gomez compliments while supporting her son's decisions concerning the relationship.
"You know, I just try and support whatever he's wanting and I think she's a sweetheart, and whatever they decide is great," Mallette said on "Today."
Still, the Christian mother who had Bieber when she was a teenager spoke about her approach to parenting concerning her son.
"You have to sort of let them make some of their own decisions," she told The Advertiser. "Me, personally, I would love to be with him all the time and to be able to ground him and deal with his problems and do all of that stuff, but at some point the parenting style changes. I hope to still be a respected voice in his ear."
Mallette has been promoting her book "Nowhere But Up" for teenagers, but has remained tight lipped about her 19-year-old son who has been facing scrutiny in the media. However, Mallette is not quick to address her son's personal behavior while making her media rounds.
"He wants me to continue to respect his boundaries and my relationship with him," Mallette said in The Advertiser report. "Everybody has their own opinion and everybody wants to sensationalize everything."
