Justin Bieber's grandfather has reportedly claimed that he has "never seen a penny" of the star's fortune.

George Bieber, the father of the pop star's dad Jeremy, said he is unable to work as he has a back condition, lives in a small, drafty cabin in Mitchell, Canada, and that he and his wife can't afford holidays.

He told The Sun that he doesn't get any financial support from the millionaire Boyfriend singer.

He said: "Justin might be worth £70 million but we certainly have never seen a penny of it.

"It's hard to imagine the money Justin has, as it's about as far removed from our life as you could get."

George, who said he hasn't seen the singer since Christmas, said the only gift he has received from Justin was a television.

The 61-year-old also commented on the recent controversy surrounding Justin, who has made headlines for being late for a concert, falling ill during another show and apparently losing his temper with a photographer.

"When I hear about his recent behaviour I just wonder who on earth is looking after him as, believe me, this is not the loving little boy we always knew," he said.

Justin's representatives have not commented on the claims, but a source told the Mail Online: "This is recycled nonsense and too bad."
