Boos for Bieber

Justin Bieber was booed by the "entire" crowd at a basketball game yesterday.

The 'Believe' hitmaker got a less-than-impressed reception from fellow sports fans as Los Angeles' Staples Center when he took his mother Pattie Mallette to watch Los Angeles Clippers take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in game four of the NBA playoffs.

A source told E! News: "The entire placed booed him when Staples Center cameras put him on the jumbotron."

Despite getting booed at the game - which saw the Clippers edge a victory with a final score of 101-99 - Justin, 20, and his mother appeared to be having a great time, and were seen posing for a number of selfies.

Posting one picture of his mother holding a hotdog online, the Canadian singer wrote: "Took my mom to the game.. She's more focussed on the food."

Justin and his mom were spending time together in honour of Mother's Day in America yesterday, and before they headed to the game, the 'Beauty and the Beat' singer posted a tribute to his 38-year-old parent on twitter.

He wrote: "Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mom @pattiemallette. I love u with all my heart!! #HonorThyMother #HappyMothersDay. (sic)"

The posting was accompanied by a childhood photograph of the star with his mother.
