Justin Bieber GRANDDAD UNLEASHED! ‘Never Calls, Not A Penny’

Justin Bieber’s poverty-stricken grandfather thinks the singer ”has forgotten” his family.

justinb Justin Bieber GRANDDAD UNLEASHED! Never Calls, Not A Penny

George, 61, cannot work because of a painful back problem and he has revealed he and his wife Kathy – Justin’s step-grandmother – have received no support from his superstar grandson.

The lack of help comes despite the ‘Beauty and the Beat’ singer’s grandparents having very limited income and living in difficult conditions – a hole in the roof caused by a falling tree goes unfixed.

George said: ”Justin has just got too big for his britches. He never calls us and now I sometimes think he doesn’t care … [He] seems to be getting caught up in this lavish lifestyle and has forgotten us.

”When I hear about his recent behavior I just wonder who on earth is looking after him as, believe me, this is not the loving little boy we always knew, it’s like we now live on different planets.”

As his grandparents continue to struggle, the 19-year-old pop star recently endured a difficult and controversial UK trip including a confrontation with a photographer and turning up two hours late for a show.

And he is apparently able to help his maternal grandmother and her second husband, which upsets George.

He told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ”For them nothing seems to be too much trouble. He buys them new houses, cars, luxury holidays – anything they want. But for us – nothing.

”I would love a new house as now I cannot even make it upstairs, my back is so bad. But I guess that is not on the cards for us.”

He admitted their situation is becoming ”desperate” and he can’t grasp the level of wealth his grandson now enjoys.

He added: ”Justin might be worth $70 million but we certainly have never seen a penny of it. It does make me sad, as right now our life is pretty desperate, it’s had to imagine the money Justin has, as it’s about as far removed from our life as you could get.”

CHRISTIE-CROSS: Chris Christie Campaigning For OBAMA?

Many Republicans are quietly telling NJ Gov. Chris Christie to “shut the hell up,” when it comes to his praise of President Obama’s storm response…

THE HILL:

Mitt Romney and President Obama will re-emerge on the presidential trail on Wednesday, but in starkly different ways.

Romney will hold a trio of events in the swing state of Florida with prominent Republicans Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

Obama will also appear with a prominent Republican: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who will be giving the president a tour of the damage in his state in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

The president returns to the road on Thursday with campaign stops in Green Bay, Wis., Boulder, Colo., and Las Vegas, according to the Obama campaign.

The divergent paths underscore the challenge both campaigns have faced in recent days, trying to best balance the demands of a presidential race and the need to project the appropriate sensitivity as the Eastern Seaboard grapples with the aftermath of the catastrophic storm.

Obama has a natural advantage with the power of incumbency. The White House made sure to update reporters early Tuesday morning with the president’s work on response efforts to Sandy — including his endeavors overnight — and released photos of Obama meeting with federal officials. Later in the afternoon, the president visited the Red Cross, where he declared that his “message to the federal government” was “no bureaucracy, no red tape.”

But his day job can also hamper his reelection efforts: He hasn’t been on the campaign trail since Saturday, though he’s been able to brandish prominent surrogates like Vice President Biden and former President Clinton.
