Arrested with his father Jeremy by his side (allegedly blocking off the road for the infamous Miami "drag race"), Beliebers were curious to know what JB's main lady, his mother, had to say about him getting arrested...and supposedly partying with his dad.
E! News is reporting that Pattie Mallette revealed to friends that she is genuinely concerned for her son.
"As any mom of an adult child, Pattie is holding him close and talking to him about everything, but she can't make his decisions for him," a source close to the Biebs' mom told E! exclusively.
"As any caring mother would be, Pattie is genuinely concerned for Justin, and she has said in many interviews before that she doesn't have her head in the clouds and keeps in very close touch with Justin," the source adds.
"She talks with him almost every day, which is likely more than any mom and a 19-year-old son...and she is in the public eye dealing with all of this."
The source also said that Justin's not the only one under a lot of pressure right now.
""It's so hard to see people's opinions and accusations when they don't know her...If she is with Justin, she is accused of endorsing or enabling him, yet if they find out she is not with him, they accuse her for not being with her own child in a time like this," the insider added.
"Pattie has a great relationship with Justin...he knows where she stands on the decisions he's making in his life. He knows what she is proud of and what she has serious discussions with him about."
Don't worry. She's not making excuses for her son either.
"Pattie never makes excuses for her son, but she is not going to turn on him for the approval or opinion of the world."
