Of all the sad and angry and generally negative lyrics Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have ever (allegedly) written about each other, perhaps the most cutting came on Justin’s “Love Yourself,” when he crooned, “My mama don’t like you—and she likes everyone.”
Apparently, this is one lyric that isn’t about Selena—or, if it was, it’s not true anymore.
On Saturday afternoon, Justin accompanied his mom, Pattie Mallette, to the Justice SpeaksHoliday Benefit Luncheon in L.A., where she was the keynote speaker.
Speaking to People, Pattie dodged specific questions about the couple rekindling their relationship, but she did take a moment to gush about Selena as a person.
“I don’t know so much about their personal relationship because he doesn’t share a whole lot, but I love her,” she said. “I support anything [he does], if he loves her I love her, and I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious. I can’t really speak on their relationship, that’s between them.”
