Justin Bieber visited Selena Gomez yesterday (27.03.13).

The 'Beauty and a Beat' singer was spotted at his ex-girlfriend's Los Angeles house, two months after they called time on their two-year romance, and stayed for around an hour, with his security team and driver waiting outside.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: ''Justin Bieber visited Selena Gomez at her house this afternoon.''

Meanwhile, Justin's mother, Pattie Mallette, has revealed she is still in contact with 20-year-old Selena, despite her split from her son.

She told 'Access Hollywood': ''[Selena's] a sweetheart. I'll always love and respect her. Whatever Justin chooses, obviously, it's his life. I've talked to her [since the break-up].''

Justin has hit the headlines recently for a string of controversial antics, including arriving two hours late for a concert in London, getting into an altercation with a photographer and being accused of battery, and Pattie admits she ''prays'' for the 19-year-old star, though she insists she has no influence over some aspects of his life.

She said: ''Of course I pray for him and I encourage him. I can't really speak to how he handles that part of his life.

''Him being 19, you know, I've just gotta let go a little and let him make some of his own decisions. He's growing up. He's 19. He's not my baby.''

Speaking of the allegations of battery following a row with a neighbour, she added to 'Access Hollywood': ''Sometimes I learn about things on the internet the same as everybody else. And that was the case this time.''
