Apparently Justin Bieber‘s been paying rent on a California mansion for his mother, Pattie Mallette, for the past two years. It’s a pretty nice place – 2,900 square feet, in fact – but now there’s a bit of trouble brewing over some illegal construction she wants to do.
Seems Pattie wanted to do some home improvement in her home gym but never got the permission of her landlord. She had a mirror installed last summer, but didn’t pay the bill. So the company that did the work has filed a lien against the property … and her landlord was none too pleased.
The lien was for a modest $3,414. We’re told Pattie thought she was being overcharged and refused to pay. Pattie settled up a week ago for around $2,600. And TMZ informed the landlord Friday and he was PISSED!
As for who’s paying the $8,000 monthly rent … we’ve learned one of Justin’s companies is handling it.
“One of Justin’s companies” must be the code name for the team of lawyers he’s hired specifically to do settlements/plea deals for all the fuckery he gets involved in, I’m sure.
Seems like Biebers and California properties don’t really mesh well, eh?

I know we’re all tired of Justin Bieber (and I’m particularly tired of typing the word “asshole” over and over again), but he can’t seem to stay out of the news for longer than 24 hours and refuses to tone down his… assholery (?) so that we can stop writing about him. After smuggling a monkey – and no, that’s not a euphemism – to Germany and refusing to pay for a tattoo, the latest news comes all the way from Austria, where this punk ass has been banned from a nightclub for having his entourage/security team bust up the camera phones of fans enjoying themselves/taking a few snaps.
From The Austrian Times:
Baby Pop singer Justin Bieber has been banned from Vienna’s trendiest nightclub.
He went to the Passage club in Vienna, Austria – built on the site of a converted underground station – where he was surrounded by bodyguards.
According to the management at the club the bodyguards then smashed cameras of fans in the club, destroyed mobile telephones and even groped some of the young girl fans who reportedly left in tears after the Saturday morning assaults.
Club manager Joachim Bankel confirmed: “Justin Bieber is no longer welcome here.”
UGH, this fucking kid. Can he not just be banned from, like, planet earth as a whole?
In other news, will.i.am still thinks anyone gives a shit what he has to say about, well, anything, and is still sounding off on Bieber. His most recent pearl of wisdom saw him claiming that Justin’s money sponge mother, Pattie Mallette, will get him back on track. You know, despite being done with parenting him and all.
From The Daily Telegraph:
“Justin’s going to be okay. It’s dangerous to be a child star, but it’s dangerous to be a child in the ghetto, or to be a child at school being bullied.
“If you have good parents, you’ll be all right. Justin’s mom is great.”
When we eject Justin into space, let’s send will.i.am with him, shall we?

Justin Bieber‘s mother, Pattie Mallette, certainly won’t be winning any parent of the year awards, that’s for sure. After nearly aborting the little dickhead, she’s now trying to get famous by writing books and making films about how great actually having him worked out for her (read: $$$$, ya’ll!), all the while not giving a shit how much of an unbearable asshole he’s turned out to be.
Mallette is out on the ho stroll promoting Crescendo, which she is an executive producer on, and of course she’s been asked about Justin’s antics as of late, the most recent of which being his spitting in his neighbor’s face and threatening to kill him, refusing to pay a tattoo artist and sneaking a monkey onto his private jet. You’d think, as his mother, she’d refuse to comment (because you can’t realistically expect her to admit that yeah, he’s turned into a nasty piece of work) or say that it’s difficult and she’s trying to work out what’s behind his bullshit, etc. Instead, she just sorta shrugged and said her job as a parent is done.
From Access Hollywood:
“Him being 19, you know, I’ve just gotta let go a little and let him make some of his own decisions. He’s growing up. He’s 19. He’s not my baby.”
I mean, sure – he is technically an adult and can do whatever he wants, but I’m not even a parent and I know that role doesn’t end when a kid turns 18. Can she control him? Maybe not, but if she’s raised him to be so close to her and all that bullshit they both spout, you think she’d give more of a shit. But, you know, I guess once the check clears in the bank, you care a lot less about your own flesh and blood.
As for Justin, here’s more on his other fuckery. A tattoo artist from London has spoken out over the “spoiled brat” who whined and moaned about the £1,000 ($1,600) fee until the guy left with only half the money just to get away.
From The Mirror:
“Initially I was told to go to Justin’s hotel at 7pm by one of his minders but then I was called back and put on standby all night.
“I was finally summoned to the hotel at 6am. I was told money wasn’t a problem so we didn’t discuss prices.”
“When I said it was £1,000, Bieber’s bodyguard didn’t want to pay. They snubbed me and tried to haggle over the money. In the end I accepted £500 just so I could go.
“Basically, he’s a joke and a spoilt brat. When I was there, I also saw Justin throw a fit with his personal assistant. It was disgraceful.”
To be fair to Justin, I’d begrudge paying a grand for such ugly body art. Fuuuuuuck this kid. If all that wasn’t enough, he now faces prosecution and up to a $10,000 (or whatever the Euro equivalent is) in Germany for sneaking his pet monkey, Mally, on a transatlantic flight. The monkey’s now being detained at customs at his expense. What an idiot.
From The Sun:
The star broke strict health laws by sneaking the primate into Germany in his private jet.
Last night a source said: “Justin has been acting like a right diva. He is out of control and lives in an alternative reality to the rest of us.
“He didn’t think about the potential risks of flying a monkey from one continent to another.
“He and Mally go everywhere together. He will be heartbroken it has been put in quarantine.
A customs spokesman said: “The animal required a certificate of health and other authorisations.You cannot just land with a wild animal and bring it into the country if the flight has not originated from another EU country and you don’t have the proper paperwork.”
MAKE IT STOP.
