Canadian teen singing sensation Justin Bieber does have a father after all.
All of the press surrounding Justin’s meteoric rise to fame because of his mother’s decision to put his videos on YouTube has been diverted to uncovering more about the singer’s seemingly silent father. LongIslandPress.com reports Jeremy Bieber, Justin’s dad, is alive and well, remarried and has two younger children, Jazmyn and Jaxon.
Justin remains undaunted by the media flap revolving around his father.
“I have a great relationship with my dad. When I was younger he taught me how to play some songs on guitar,” Justin said.
Earlier this year, Justin got a tattoo which matches the seagull tattooed on his father’s chest. Jeremy Bieber lives in Canada.
Other celebrities have family members who sometimes inadvertently get caught up in the limelight. So far, Jeremy has managed stay close to his son while staying away from his burgeoning career. Other celebrities have not been so lucky.
Being the daughter of a country music star definitely has its benefits. When Billy Ray Cyrus noticed his daughter Miley possessed a powerful voice and could easily perform in front of a crowd, he implored her to stay out of the business which earned him his own fame.
Despite the warning, Miley landed the lead role in Disney’s “Hannah Montana” in 2005 at the tender age of 13 and has since gained mega-star status, according to People magazine.
When Alaskan governor Sarah Palin was asked to be Senator John McCain’s running mate for the 2008 presidential election, her family of five children was immediately thrown into the spotlight. After Palin’s eldest daughter, Bristol, then still in high school, had a baby, she immediately set out to make a name for herself.
The younger Palin traveled the country speaking to teen girls about the grim realities associated with teenage pregnancy. Bristol was paid, according to the Washington Post, sometimes as much as $30,000 for one speaking engagement. She has also enjoyed a recurring appearance on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
Ali Lohan continually seems to be upstaged by her older sister for all the wrong reasons. Lindsay Lohan can’t seem to stay clean, sober and out of jail or get her life back on track. Even as the elder Lohan sister is struggling, the younger sister is constantly spotted by the media as stepping up to help Lindsay.
TMZ regularly films Ali accompanying Lindsay’s mom, Dina, as they try to help Lindsay recuperate and rehabilitate in California.
Jeremy is Just a Dad
Jeremy Bieber seems to have a low-key approach when it comes to Justin’s career. Thus far the Bieber family seems content to fade into the background and let Justin figure things out on his own.
Ideally, Justin and Jeremy Bieber will be able to enjoy a normal father-son relationship despite Justin’s growing popularity as a well-known singer with millions of fans. Jeremy Bieber is available on Twitter at his LordBieber account, upon which Justin leaves occasional messages.
