The Biebz has some seriously awful spending habits. Like, sure, getting a private screening of Titanic for your lady is sweet, and who wouldn’t love to have his $25,000 Stewie necklace, but sometimes enough is enough. Luckily, Justin is still just 17 years old, so when he does something stupid, he can still get his minor ass grounded.
From the National Enquirer via Celebitchy:
Justin Bieber has had his driver’s license suspended – by his overprotective mom! The teen pop star’s driving privileges shifted into neutral after his mom, Pattie Mallette, grounded him for splurging on a $160,000 custom-made hot-rod!
“Pattie blew a gasket when she learned about Justin’s wild spending spree,” a source disclosed. “As a result, she is forbidding him from driving until he turns 18, unless he’s accompanied by an adult chaperon.”
During a recent visit to England, the 17 year-old… singer reportedly treated himself to a customized “Project Kahn” Range Rover, complete with a souped-up Cosworth engine, custom paint job and a sound system worth tens of thousands of dollars.
The underage hot-rodder already owns a Batman-themed customized Cadillac and a Ferrari…
“Pattie is trying to get Justin’s wild spending under control,” added the source.
Does anyone else think it’s weird that Justin was able to spend $160,000 on a car without his mom knowing? I couldn’t spend $20 without my mom knowing when I was his age. I got an allowance for doing chores, and every Friday when my mom gave me my $10, she’d tell me not to spend it on anything stupid. I never did, of course – for the most part, my money went to form my impressive collection of Bowie albums and memorabilia – but it was always said. Now, I know that I’m not a superstar, I’m not the legend that Justin Bieber is, but don’t you think that his mom could have at least laid down the law a little before it got to this point?
