Jeremy Bieber has reportedly signed up to take part in the UK edition of Celebrity Big Brother.
“He has been talking to producers for a few weeks and they have cut a deal. The fact he is the father of one of the most famous people in the world means he was near the top of the producers’ wish-list. No doubt Justin’s fans will tune in to see what his dad is like. Justin is a little worried, though,” reports a source close to the show.
Justin Bieber worried? I’ll bet he is! For once (actually, quite often) I’m glad I’m not famous enough to have my father invited on to ‘Celebrity Big Brother.’
Bieber’s dad, who lives with his wife and two younger kids (Justin’s half-siblings) in Canada, didn’t share a house with Justin when he was growing up, but they stayed in contact. He was only 19 when Justin was born, making him a pretty young Dad.
Justin was raised by his mom, Pattie Mallette and her parents.
Meanwhile, Jeremy was busy drinking too heavily and getting in to fights. Justin is right to be worried about what will be divulged on this show. This guy is definitely not who you expect Justin Bieber’s father to be. Granted, he didn’t exactly raise his son. But the woman who did all the work isn’t likely to travel to the UK to put herself through ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’ even for the $150,000 fee.
If I were Justin, I’d be thinking seriously about paying Dad to stay home. It’s not a matter of him having a drunken and violent past; that is very much this guy’s life now, with him being involved in brawls as late as a few months ago. And there will be plenty of alcohol in the ‘Big Brother’ house.
What do you think to Jeremy Bieber appearing on the UK reality TV program? Are you worried what damage he could do to Justin? Or are you already looking forward to finding out exactly what Jeremy has to say about his famous son?
