She then ended up splitting from his father Jeremy Bieber at the tender age of just 18.

But the Baby favourite has is still supportive of her decision to write Nowhere But Up.

He said: ‘Yeah, it was a lot for me to hear. But I’m older now. When I was younger, my mum never told me any of this stuff.

‘It was definitely hard reading those stories, but I’m supportive of her writing the book. It’s cool.’

Pattie’s mother Diane and step-father Bruce Dale have also admitted they were shocked by some of the incidents in the book as they were unaware of many of her difficulties.

Bruce added: ‘There are three sides to every story. There’s one side, the other side, and then there’s the truth.’

The pop favourite said: ‘I don’t just want to be a teen heartthrob. Now I’m at the top, there’s only one way to go and it’s down.

‘That gives me the motivation to stay on top and keep pushing.

‘I grew up with a really competitive side, playing sports—basketball, hockey and soccer. I don’t want to be second-best, third-best, fourth-best.

‘I want to be the best. That takes a lot of dedication and hard work. You gotta have plans.’
