The Canadian teenage phenomenon and young actress Selena finally confirmed their romance at the end of February following months of speculation that they were dating. They attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party together, and were seen with their arms intertwined.
While Justin’s mother, Patricia Lynn ‘Pattie’ Mallette, approves of their relationship – she is reportedly worried the teenagers are taking things a bit too seriously.
“Pattie thinks the world of Selena,” a source told National Enquirer. “She has nothing against them dating, she just thinks they shouldn’t hurry things.”
According to the insider, 18-year-old Selena’s mother and stepfather have their own concerns. “Mandy feels the same way, and so does Selena’s stepdad,” the insider explained.
In February Justin, who turned 17 on March 1, bought a shop full of flowers for Selena. While she was touched by the gesture, their parents reportedly thought it was a step too far.
“He went hog-wild and plunked down thousands of dollars. Selena loved it and couldn’t stop gushing about what a great boyfriend he was,” the insider added. “But her parents think he’s gone overboard – they think both kids have.”
