Justin Bieber’s mother cancelled his mobile phone after a row.
The 16-year-old ‘Baby’ singer likes travelling with his mother Pattie Mallette, who helped launch his career, but they occasionally clash and she recently punished him but cutting off his phone.
He said: “Mom travels with me. We argue, yes, I think every parent and son argue, but I love my mom. I think it’s good she travels me, but sometimes I need a break because I’m with her 24/7 but I love her, I like being with her.
“The other day she cancelled my phone plan. We got into an argument about something stupid, and she was like: ‘Give me the phone’ and I was like: ‘No’, so she just went and cancelled it.”
As a result of his mother’s punishment, Justin admits he may miss important calls and messages, including any from his mentor Usher.
He told BBC Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton “If Usher wants to get in touch with me? Then it’s tough.”
Although they occasionally clash, it was recently revealed Pattie is pleased about her son’s showbiz career as she believes it has kept him out of trouble.
His manager Scooter Braun said: “I think his mother feels that if they were still in Stratford, Ontario, he'd be getting himself into a lot of trouble.
"Justin doesn't study the people who made it. He studies the people who haven't. The general feeling we get is that it had nothing to do with their talent and everything to do with their personal life.
“Like the kids who fall into drugs and destroy their own trajectory. He realises that if he grows up to be a good man, he's going to be able to handle the pressures that come with a position like this."
