Justin Bieber recently said that “relationships are worth fighting for” especially when it comes to family.

The singer penned a tribute to his dad, Jeremy Bieber, on social media on Tuesday. The “Despacito” singer uploaded a photo of himself with his dad walking on the streets together. He revealed that he’s enjoying getting to know his dad and repairing their relationship.

While speaking with Billboard in 2015, Bieber revealed that his parents were very young when they had him. Jeremy was just 18, while Pattie Mallette was 17. Shortly after Bieber was born in 1994, the couple decided to go their separate ways.

The “Baby” singer revealed that his dad wasn’t fit to raise a baby because he was still very young himself. At the age of 4, Bieber’s dad decided to leave his family for an entire year. At that time, Mallette raised her son.

“I remember my mom said, ‘If you’re going to be here, you have to be here.’ There’s a misconception that he’s this deadbeat dad, but he has been in my life since. I was with him on weekends and Wednesdays,” he shared.

Last year, Bieber told GQ that he had a falling out with his mom, and the incident brought him closer to his dad. Bieber and his mom patched things up later on, but Mallette is currently residing in Hawaii.

Meanwhile, Bieber’s relationship with his dad isn’t the only thing he’s focused on these days. The “Love Yourself” singer has also rekindled his romance with Selena Gomez recently. Even though they are not officially back together yet, the two has been spotted hanging out frequently.

Gomez also explained to Billboard why she decided to hang out with Bieber again. “I’m 25. I’m not 18, 19 or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone every goes away,” she said.
