Justin Bieber's mom Pattie Mallette talks Selena Gomez and Bieber's behavior on 'The View'
"When he turned 18, he wanted some space ... I think that all parents worry about their kids. I don't necessarily agree with everything that he does. He knows the things -- we talk. We talk about things. ... I'm also super proud of him, a lot of things he does that don't make the headlines everyday," says Pattie.
"Some of the things we talk about, obviously I have to keep between him and I ... I try to encourage him to stay true to who he is and stay grounded and humble. I just always encourage him and say, 'You've always had to learn the hard way, but you'll get there and I believe in you.' And I have to keep believing that he'll come out on top."
As for his on-again, off-again relationship with Selena Gomez, Pattie says that whether they are together "depends on what day it is."
