Justin Bieber is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and actor. He is the son of Jeremy Bieber and Pattie Mallette. A picture of Justin with his parents can be seen here.

On his father’s side, Justin has German, Irish, English, and Scottish ancestry. Justin’s mother’s family is French-Canadian; his mother also has remote English, Swiss-French, and Scottish ancestry.

Justin has stated that he has some Native Canadian (First Nations) ancestry. It is not clear if this ancestry has ever been verified/documented. No Native ancestry appears on any publicly available family trees of Justin Bieber.

Justin is able to understand some French but can not speak the language fluently. He was raised by his single mother, and is able to play the piano, drums, guitar, and trumpet. He was discovered on YouTube by Scooter Braun, who later became his manager.

Justin’s patrilineal line traces back to Philippe Bieber, an ethnic German who was born, c. 1788, in Zilling, Moselle, Lorraine (then in France).

Justin’s paternal grandfather is George Bieber (the son of Hiram Albert Bieber and Ellen Anne Mary Loretta Egan). Justin’s great-grandfather Hiram was born in Dashwood, Ontario, of German descent. Hiram’s parents were William Albert Bieber (the son of Philip/Philippe Bieber and Caroline Bier) and Margaretta Pfaff (the daughter of Henry Pfaff and Elizabeth Keller).
Justin’s great-grandmother Ellen was born in Ontario, of Irish descent. Ellen’s parents were John Michael Egan (the son of Michael Egan and Helen Lang) and Mary Ann Whalen (the daughter of James Whalen and Ann Birch).

Justin’s paternal grandmother is Kathleen Arnold (the daughter of Jack Arnold and Florence Alice Kennedy). Justin’s great-grandfather Jack was born in Poole, Dorset, England, the son of George Arnold and Kate Elizabeth Rattew. Justin’s great-grandmother Florence was the daughter of David Alexander Kennedy, who was of Scottish origin, and of Muriel Florence Napper, who was of English descent.

Justin’s maternal grandfather is Michael Mallette (the son of Alexandre Mallette/Mallet and Therese Hamelin/Hamblin). Justin’s grandfather Michael was born to a French-Canadian family. Alexandre was the son of Felix Alfred Telesphore Mallette/Mallet and Alida Lachance.

Justin’s maternal grandmother is Diane M. Henry (the daughter of Venant Eugène Henry and Estelle Germain). Justin’s grandmother Diane is from a French-Canadian family. Venant was the son of Joseph Daniel Henry and Marguerite Léocadie/Louse Babin. Estelle was the daughter of Joseph-Roland Garneau Germain and Marie-Alphonsine-Germaine Breton.

Justin’s matrilineal ancestry traces back to Marie Meilleur, who was born, c. 1599, in Sainte-Madeleine-de-la-Ventrouse, Perche, France.

Many French-Canadian are mixed with first nation.

Mafia888 April 30, 2016 at 8:02 am

I wish I was Canadian

phaedra April 10, 2016 at 1:49 am

He’s got the most whitest ethnicity and yet he has brown eyes?

I expected Spanish, Italian or Jewish…

andrew April 10, 2016 at 10:22 am

Shocking! what about all the Italians and Jews with non-brown eyes?

savanna April 10, 2016 at 10:34 am

Brown eyes are the most common eye color across the board.. Wtf are you talkin about

andrew April 10, 2016 at 10:44 am

Justin does not have any Scandinavian or Baltic ancestry, areas where blue eyes are extremely common. Another fail.

lanadelrey August 16, 2017 at 2:01 pm

Lol, his eyes are obviously a mix of a light eye person and a dark eye person so he could have a ancestor or a parent scandinavian

phaedra May 15, 2016 at 12:38 am

Not in Europe they’re not. That’s 10% of the world. Bieber is from Europe, having the most whitest ethnic groups in him, and yet he retains brown eyes (which are gorgeous btw).

Andrew, nobody cares about your Italians and how “white” they are. Keep that to yourself, you desperate kid.

ArnyDiaz March 27, 2017 at 10:45 am

Most Europeans have brown hair, you dumb clueless american

follers April 10, 2016 at 2:33 pm

Justin’s the son of a brown-eyed father and a light-eyed mother.

Justin really doesn’t look like his mother much.

andrew April 11, 2016 at 5:07 am

He probably looks 50/50.

ashash January 28, 2018 at 11:03 am

Of course it is the WASP father with the brown eyes.

lanadelrey August 16, 2017 at 2:02 pm

whitest ethnicity? are you kidding me? All european countries are considered WHITE, also he has amber eyes that are obviously a mix of a light eye person with a dark eye person

Duke February 14, 2016 at 2:18 pm

Hair isn’t naturally blonde. He dyes it.

abbracci October 15, 2015 at 9:33 pm

He looks like my gypsy brother.

Devotion October 14, 2015 at 6:20 am

Capricious October 8, 2015 at 6:55 am

10% dyke

Lol nah but he’s so gorgeous.

cwm85 August 29, 2015 at 5:50 pm

Needs A good ass whupping…

Connerfromvine August 25, 2015 at 12:16 pm

Yeah I definitely see Swiss

sarahle August 29, 2015 at 5:19 pm

really? how?
germans, swiss and austrian look the same… and he could pass for any european…

that’s absurd.

xoxo November 19, 2015 at 2:08 pm

How the fuck can you tell the difference?

M August 22, 2015 at 7:20 pm

Arrogant douche. His music is garbage.

neiltennant August 3, 2015 at 12:41 am

i swear he does look like a self confident lesbian !

xoxo August 6, 2015 at 6:29 pm
musicfangirl August 29, 2015 at 3:44 pm

he would be Miley Cyrus’ brother

GypsyQueen July 19, 2015 at 5:40 pm

I want to f*ck Justin Bieber, Foku Me and Caitlyn Jenner. They are so sexy!

cwm85 July 20, 2015 at 4:43 am

You are sick…

GypsyQueen July 19, 2015 at 4:21 pm

Justin Bieber is the sexiest man alive.

California July 24, 2015 at 8:34 pm

You must be 12 years old. He actually looks like Selena Gomez, and it’s sort of sick considering they dated. They look like siblings.

neiltennant July 16, 2015 at 2:36 pm

i read years ago that he joked or claimed to have native canadian roots

but I’m sure that was a joke

he reminds me of a girl at my university. This girl has the same eyes and is of german descent and by the way she is a lesbian

musicfangirl July 25, 2015 at 10:12 pm

he makes a fugly dude but would make a pretty girl

Blerman August 6, 2015 at 11:28 am

dude checked again this dude gets bitches what do u get

Gurrl August 2, 2015 at 6:39 pm

It had to be a joke. He had said that he has enough “indian” ancestry to have free gas (stupidity on so many levels and btw no tribe gets “free gas”)

andrew July 11, 2015 at 8:22 am

ethnic, you should put a more recent pic of him.

cdonorab May 18, 2015 at 3:24 pm

Correction justin also has English roots on his mother’s side as well and possibly Scottish roots as well. His 6th great grandmother Hannah warren was born in Quebec but her parents were from NYC and their ancestors came from England. Hannah’s husband James Ferguson’s roots are not as well documented, but some trees I’ve seen of his claim he was born in Scotland.
