Justin Bieber has reunited with his mother, months after telling the world that their relationship had become distant.
Pattie Mallette, Bieber’s mother and the author of Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom, expressed her excitement at attending her son’s Purpose Tour in Los Angeles Sunday.
“Okay @justinbieber I’m so excited, lets do this!” Mallette tweeted. “May tonight’s show be great and please don’t break a leg!!”
She later encouraged her 22-year-old son on social media about how great his show was.
“Amazing show @justinbieber! I’m so proud of you,” Mallette tweeted. “Keep going honey. Live your dream every day on stage or off. Cherish what you have.”
Mallette has witnessed her son go through some dark times since rising to fame at the age of 13. In 2014, Bieber had an especially rough year after he was accused of assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto, egging his neighbor’s home, being arrested for a DUI and questionable driving in Miami, and allegedly taking part in lewd acts like urinating in a prison cell.
In an interview with Billboard last year, Bieber revealed that the behavior put a wedge in the relationship he had with his mother.
“I was distant because I was ashamed. I never wanted my mom to be disappointed in me and I knew she was,” he admitted. “We spent some time not talking, so it takes time to rebuild that trust. She’s living in Hawaii now, so it’s hard, but getting better.”
Still, Bieber had to admit his mom was “an amazing woman and I love her.”
