AceShowbiz - Justin Bieber's mom Pattie Malette apparently gives her blessing to her son and Hailey Baldwin following their alleged secret marriage. While some may think that the marriage is too soon for the young couple, the 43-year-old let everyone know that the "Sorry" hitmaker will always get her back.
"Love is unconditional," Pattie wrote on Twitter just one day after Justin and the 21-year-old model were reported to secretly tie the knot on Thursday, September 13. She even pinned the tweet. Later on Sunday, she tweeted, "Haters gonna hate. #LoveWins."

Justin and Hailey were said to be legally married at a courthouse in New York City. "They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone," a source previously told PEOPLE. Hailey previously denied the reports, though a friend of the couple explained that the model "feels a civil ceremony and their 'real' wedding are two separate things."
A new report suggests that the couple didn't sign on a prenuptial agreement before their shocking legal marriage. "They didn't tell anyone on their teams what was going on and his people have been frantically trying to get his business affairs and finances in order," said a source to The Sun.
However, Pasadena-based family lawyer Kelly Chang Rickert claims to HollywoodLife.com it's too late for a prenup since "the entire definition of a prenup means ‘before marriage.’ " Chang Rickert adds, "The purpose of a prenup is to set your own laws regarding what happens if the marriage doesn't work out. If you have no prenup, you are subject to the laws of the place where you end up divorcing."
The lawyer, however, notes that postnuptial agreements do exist but they are trickier. "After you are married, you have a higher standard of care. You not have a fiduciary duty to your spouse. Thus, postnups are more burdensome than prenups to get right, and postnups are often challenged as unenforceable," she explains.
"You are already seen under law as being liable to your spouse, which is why couples should draw up prenups before signing on the dotted line if they wish to protect their property and assets," she continues. Chang Rickert then adds that as long as Justin and Hailey last, they won't be having a trouble despite not drawing up prenups.
However, if they split, Justin is said to risk "being subject to the laws of whichever state he ends up getting divorced in." If they divorce in Califonia, one of nine states that has community property, "he would need to part with half of the assets he acquired during the marriage and before the date of separation. He also would need to pay support based on California guideline."
The "Despacito" hitmaker is allegedly worth approximately $265 million, with Forbes estimating that the singer pulled in $85 million in 2017 alone. Meanwhile, the "Drop the Mic" host, meanwhile, is worth $2 million according to the CNW website.
