Justin Bieber‘s mom Pattie Mallette gave him the prescription medication he took before his DUI arrest, reports TMZ. Cops asked Justin what substances he had ingested before his arrest and he admitted he was on prescription medication, alcohol, and weed.
He was taking anti-anxiety medication (such as Xanax) given to him by his mom. It’s unclear if he has his own prescriptions for the drugs, and his mom just handles them, or if he’s using his mom’s prescriptions .. which would be illegal.
If Bieber does have a valid prescription, the presence of the substance in his system probably won’t be held against him. When police raided Bieber’s house following the infamous egg attack, they found Xanax pills in the home. He allegedly had a blood alcohol level of .04 .
UPDATE: Pattie Mallette started drinking when she was 14, doing drugs at age 15 and even attempted suicide. Pattie: ‘It was a culmination built up over the years of the abuse and the pain.
At the time I was messed up with drugs and alcohol and in a depression.’ A judge had also ordered Jeremy to stay away from Justin when he was under the influence of alcohol.
