Justin Bieber‘s father would rather travel the world and party with his pop star son than work on his seven-year relationship with Erin Wagner and the two young children they have, a new report claims.
According to an exclusive with the Mail Online, Jeremy Bieber and Wagner had been struggling for quite some time, but their pair are now split up and living separately — but sharing custody of their two kids; Jaxon, 4, and Jazmyn, 5.
Jeremy, 39, has been spending a lot of time with Justin, 19, recently and was with him in Miami when the “Baby” singer was arrested for drag racing and DUI.
Sources told the Mail that Wagner, 27, couldn’t handle Jeremy always being gone, living the high-life with Justin.
Perhaps feeling lonely, Wagner tweeted on Jan. 16:
Jeremy has been labeled as a bad influence on his son, photographed partying with him just days after his Miami arrest. Then on the way to the Super Bowl their private jet was searched by drug-sniffing dogs and the Biebers (and their entourage) were later accused in an official report of smoking marijuana to the point where the pilots had to wear gas masks, and verbally abusing the flight attendant.
“Hard to believe sometimes that things can get better! Trying to keep going!” Wagner tweeted.
“Ready for the next chapter…..wonder what it’s about….#unknown.”
Justin’s mother, Pattie Mallette, became a single mother just 10-months after he was born when she and Jeremy split.
Mallette later documented the rocky relationship in her tell-all book, The Only Way Is Up, alleging that Jeremy cheated on her with a friend.
“Justin hitting the big time in the way he has is an absolute dream come true for Jeremy and the temptation of being able to travel the globe, living like a superstar was too much to turn down,” a source told the Mail.
“Erin was always going to take second place to that. They are still on good terms for the sake of the children and she still has a great friendship with Justin, but their relationship has broken down. Jeremy has the opportunity to party with beautiful girls in every city in the world. He was never going to let anything get in the way of that.”
