It sounds as if Justin Bieber may have a new roommate down in Atlanta: his dad Jeremy! The 38-year-old Canadian has reportedly split with his wife Erin Wagner. The two have been together seven years and have two children together, 5-year-old Jazmyn and 4-year-old Jaxon.
While neither Jeremy nor Erin have officially confirmed their separation, Splash News reports sources close to the pair say their relationship has “been struggling for some time.”
One going theory as to why that might be is Jeremy’s renewed interest in his son, who turns 20 tomorrow (March 1). He’s been a frequent member of Justin’s entourage of late and was reportedly on the scene when his eldest child was arrested in Miami last month. Jeremy’s also a vocal supporter of all things Biebs, often taking to Twitter to share his feels about parenting.
Justin’s father has a rough and tumble history of his own, adds Splash. He’s faced jail time on multiple occasions including once after he was arrested for “assault or causing bodily harm,” as RadarOnline.com uncovered earlier this month.
Justin’s mom, Pattie Mallette, has said her former boyfriend (the two never married) has “always adored his son but wasn’t mature enough to be a responsible parent.” Only time will tell if that tune has changed.
