Justin Bieber's mom Pattie Mallete comes to his defense

In the wake of Justin Bieber's egging and drug scandal, his mom, Pattie Mallete, is coming to his defense and is blaming fame for her son's behavior. "So many people go into the entertainment industry with amazing Christian roots, and get influenced somehow," she told The Sun. Pattie, who had Justin when she was 17, chronicles her own troubled past in her book, "Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom." She talks about her abuse of drugs and alcohol, saying she even dealt drugs herself. But today she seems to be singing a different tune, and she urges fans to keep her 19-year-old son in their prayers. "If Justin's struggling, don't kick him when he's down, or condemn him -- pray for him," she says.
