Justin Bieber may be living the good life now with private jets, five star hotels around the world and unlimited funds in the bank--but life wasn't always go grand for Biebs.
Before Bieber made it big him and his mother Pattie Mallette were so poor after his dad Jeremy Bieber walked out on them that he didn’t even have a proper bed and had to sleep on. He slept on a pull out couch in their Canadian council flat before he was discovered on video sharing website YouTube.
Justin said: “That place was really dirty. We had mousetraps everywhere because there were mouses – uh, mice – in the house. I didn’t have a real bed. I slept on a blue pull-out couch in my room.”
He explained to The Sun newspaper: “We didn’t have anything in the fridge, except maybe luncheon meat for school and macaroni and cheese. I’d love to play Oliver Twist.”
To some people it may seem like Biebs came out of nowhere, but he's been trying to make it big since he was just a little boy. So if anyone deserves fame and fortune, it’s him! Kudos to Biebs.
