Pitbull and his Mom had a falling out when the music man was a teenager.
The crowd he was hanging around with prompted a kick in the ass from his mom.
"She said, 'Grab what you can in 20 minutes and get out!' I respect my mom, my mom is my father and my mother and she's the one that has made me a man. She spoke very clearly with me and I broke the deal… She goes, 'I understand that you're gonna be out here, due to the neighbourhood that we live in and you're gonna be dibbling and dabbling, whatever, but there's one thing that I don't want you to do and that's be involved with this type of substance or product,' and I did. I respected the fact that she said, 'I understand what's going on out there… I understand that you might get in trouble.'"
Wow, that's some tough love!
Still, the two have reconciled since then, even though they occasionally still go at it every now and then.
Here's what he said:
"I guess you could say that she raised me so well that sometimes we bump heads."
Sounds like a good son!!!
