    From a break-up with Selena Gomez to controversial new friendships, see where Bieber may have stepped off course.1994: Justin Drew Bieber was born in Ontario, Canada. His mother was just 17 years old when she became pregnant and raised Bieber as a single mother in low-income housing. He is still close with his father, who has two other children.
    As he grew up, Bieber taught himself to play the piano, drums, guitar, and trumpet.
