Los Angeles: Justin Bieber`s mother Pattie Mallette has shunned questions regarding her teen pop sensation son, saying she does not want to talk about him.

Mallette, 38, was a part of book signing event in Ottawa and her new book `Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber`s Mom` chronicles the struggles of her life, reported Radar online.

"The way I look at it is regardless of whatever is in the headlines; there are always people who need that hope and inspiration.

"Regardless of what my son is up to today or tomorrow, it doesn`t change the face that I am out here to share my story with other people because my story is what is going to give them hope," she said.

Bieber, 19, recently inked his mother`s eye on his inner arm.

Bieber`s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez recently cut short an interview after being asked about his erratic behaviour.
