Justin Bieber reportedly believes he has “no limitations”.
The 19-year-singer has had a string of brushes with the law over the last few weeks. He is being investigated for allegedly causing $20,000 of damage to a neighbor’s property in Calabasas, California, by throwing eggs at it. He was also arrested for DUI in Miami, had to hand himself into Canadian cops over claims he assaulted a limousine driver, and was allegedly abusive to a flight attendant.
His parents Jeremy Bieber and Pattie Mallette have been on hand to help their son, as has his team, including manager Scooter Braun. However, an insider has insisted this could be part of the problem.
“Everybody around him has been telling him he can do what he wants and he has no limitations,” the source told People, with another adding: “He acts as though he’s never heard the word ‘no.’”
Jeremy was with Justin on the evening he was arrested in Miami. After his release he travelled to Panama, where he spent time with his mom, dad and team – including his mentor Usher. It’s been suggested the group took a softly-softly approach with the teenager.
“They’re not confronting him but giving him advice,” a source explained.
Pattie has previously spoken about Justin’s life choices, admitting he sometimes does things she doesn’t understand. She is trying to let him be his own person though, especially as he matures.
“His life was my life and now I’ve had to let him go a little bit and let him be independent,” she previously said. “It is hard to not be able to control everything that your adult child does.”
Footage of Justin in custody with the Miami police has been released. In it he is seen removing jewelry and the bright red sneakers he was wearing when he was arrested. Later he was asked to take his socks off too.
