Belieb it or not (sorry, couldn't help it), the woman who gave birth to the teen pop sensation known as Justin Bieber at the age of 18 was reportedly approached by Playboy to pose in a future spread - but it turns out, that's not exactly true.
Rumors circulated at the end of last week saying that the publication offered Mallette $50,000 to go topless for the mag, but Bieber's rep said Playboy never even contacted the 36-year-old mom of one, according to E!.
“The rumors that Pattie Mallette is in talks with Playboy magazine to appear in an upcoming issue are completely false,” his rep said. “She has never been approached by Playboy magazine nor has she approached Playboy. This story is utterly erroneous, without a shred of truth. Consider this denial the final word on the matter.”
