Justin Bieber snitched on his mom for giving him Xanax

Justin Bieber and Pattie Mallette

Thus far this week, Justin Bieber has been arrested for drag racing while drunk AND high, posed for a weirdly chipper mugshot, and gone in front of a judge wearing a prison jumpsuit with — I swear to gawd — the sleeves rolled up to show off his arms. Apparently, he’s trying to take lemons and turn them into hardcore baller lemonade. Except it turns out the person who pushed all those drugs on him is his own mother, Pattie Mallette. Super hardcore. TMZ reports …

When asked what kind of Rx meds, we’re told Bieber said anti-anxiety (such as Xanax) but he wasn’t sure exactly what kind … because he just takes whatever his mom Pattie gives him. It’s unclear if he has his own prescriptions for the drugs — and his mom just handles them — or if he’s using his mom’s prescriptions … which would be illegal. If Bieber does have a valid prescription , the presence of the substance in his system probably won’t be held against him. As we reported, when police raided Bieber’s house following the infamous egg attack, they found Xanax pills in the home … so it all syncs up.

On one hand, I can’t get the image of Justin’s mom packing his weed for him every morning and putting in a little note. “Mommy loves you, money! I mean Justin!” On the other hand, JESUS. How horrible a mother do you need to be to had your kid random pills and tell him to take them without question? Oh, that’s right. The kind of horrible mother who pimps her kid out to the entertainment business as a teenager, only to turn a blind-eye to his destructive behavior as long as she keeps getting her cut. THAT kind of horrible mother.
