Los Angeles: Troubled singer Justin Bieber`s mother Pattie Mallette is reportedly concerned about her famous son, who has been in headlines for wrong reasons.

The 19-year-old singer was recently arrested for driving under the influence, an incident that capped almost a year of wild antics for Beiber that include egging his neighbour, spitting on his fans from balcony and getting caught visiting strip clubs and brothels.

Mallette, who raised Bieber as a single mother, is concerned for his well-being following his arrest, reported a website.

"As any mom of an adult child, Pattie is holding him close and talking to him about everything, but she can`t make his decisions for him," a source close to Mallette said.

"As any caring mother would be, Pattie is genuinely concerned for Justin, and she has said in many interviews before that she doesn`t have her head in the clouds and keeps in very close touch with Justin," the source adds.

"She talks with him almost every day, which is likely more than any mom and a 19-year-old son... And she is in the public eye dealing with all of this."
