A new report claims Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are living with his mom, and it's getting on the model's "nerves." The story, however, is untrue. Gossip Cop has been told by several sources that Pattie Mallette has not moved in with her famous son and his newlywed wife.
According to a new article from OK! titled, "Justin & Haliey: Three's A Crowd," the "honeymoon is over" for Baldwin and Bieber because his mother is now crashing with them. To pretend its has insight, the tabloid alleges it has a "source," who maintains Baldwin is doing "her best to be welcoming," but Mallette's constant presence is getting on her "nerves." The magazine's supposed insider contends Mallette, who's name the outlet misspells, has "taken over the house."
Compounding the problems, asserts the publication, is that Bieber is a "mama's boy," who hasn't stood up yet to his mother. The purported tipster adds how Baldwin thought she and Bieber would be able to enjoy married life more, but "between their work commitments and now his mom, this hasn't been the romantic period she was hoping for." Still, claims the source, Baldwin has been "trying to smile through it."
The magazine's article has a number of glaring issues. For instance, the outlet never mentions where Mallette, her son and his wife are living. In December Bieber and Baldwin moved out of the L.A house they were renting because of plumbing problems. After that, they stayed in the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills, and the pop star's mom most assuredly was not sleeping on a cot in their suite.
Since then, the Biebers have bounced around from Canada to Seattle, and more recently to New York City. Mallette has not been spotted with them at any of those locations. While it's true that Mallette posted a photo to Instagram of her visiting Baldwin and her son a couple of weeks ago, she never moved in with them. That photo, it should be noted, is of Baldwin kissing her mother-in-law on the cheek, along with the caption, "What a gift!" A source in Bieber's camp also tells Gossip Cop the tabloid's entire tale is "not true."
Gossip Cop is not completely surprised by the falsity of the report. In fact, this isn't the first time the tabloid has made up a story about a third party coming between the happy spouses. Last month, we busted the outlet for falsely claiming Selena Gomez was "wrecking" Bieber and Baldwin's marriage. The unreliable outlet alleged Bieber blamed himself for his ex-girlfriend's recent stint in rehab, and his wife was losing faith in their marriage. In reality, the newlyweds are in the midst of planning an official wedding ceremony.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
