Justin Bieber distanced from mother

Justin Bieber has admitted his relationship with his mother is "pretty non-existing" but they are trying to repair their bond.

The 'Sorry' singer admits his connection with Pattie Mallette has declined in the last two years because she was "disappointed" in his wild behaviour - including an arrest for driving under the influence, wild partying and being convicted of egging a neighbour's house - and he was "ashamed" of himself.

He said: "I was distant because I was ashamed. 

"I never wanted my mom to be disappointed in me and I knew she was. We spent some time not talking, so it takes time to rebuild that trust."

But the two are now working to rebuild their relationship.

He said: "She's living in Hawaii now, so it's hard, but getting better. She's an amazing woman and I love her."

While he has been estranged from his mother - who gave birth to Justin when she was just 17 - he is very close to his dad, Jeremy Bieber.

And though he concedes his father was "not in a place to raise a kid," the 21-year-old star believes the misconception Jeremy was a "deadbeat dad" is very unfair.

He told Billboard magazine: "He was immature. He left for like a year when I was about four, went to British Columbia, came back on Father's Day.

"I remember my mom said, 'If you're going to be here, you have to be here.' 

"There's a misconception that he's this deadbeat dad, but he has been in my life since. I was with him on weekends and Wednesdays."
