Justin Bieber's mother plans book
Justin Bieber's mother has signed a book deal to tell the story of the role she played in her pop star son's rise to superstardom.
Pattie Mallette agreed a deal with Revell Books to publish Nowhere But Up: The Story Of Justin Bieber's Mom.
The book's publisher said in a statement that Ms Mallette will share details of the trauma, abuse and addiction that plagued her early childhood and young adult years, leading to a suicide attempt when she was 17.
The Stratford, Ontario, native became pregnant at the age of 18 and gave birth to Justin in 1994.
The book, written in collaboration with AJ Gregory, will include a foreword by Justin. It is due for release on September 18.
