Justin Bieber made the American Music Awards a family affair. After his relationship with Selena Gomez crumbled before our very eyes this past week, the pop star was seen with a replacement date for this year’s awards show. His mom.
The “Boyfriend” singer posed with his proud mother, Pattie Mallette, on the red carpet Sunday night and seemed happy despite his recent girl drama.
It shaped out to be a fortunate occasion for the Biebs after winning the first award of the evening for favorite pop/rock male artist. He of course embraced his 38-year-old mom before heading on stage and then thanked her as part of his acceptance speech.
“I want to say this is for all the haters who thought I was just here for one or two years. I feel like I’m going to be here for a very long time,” he also stated.
According to Hollywood Life, Gomez was all set to attend the AMAs with her man but backed out of the event following their disappointing split. This was no shocker after the two shared an emotional night on Friday when Selena stormed out of their dinner date at a Los Angeles Japanese restaurant.
Congrats to Bieber on his successful night but I would love to see Selena on his arm next time around!
