Bieber lived in a mouse-infested house before he became famous.

The Baby hitmaker revealed he and his mother Pattie Mallette were so poor after his dad Jeremy Bieber walked out on them that he didn’t even have a proper bed and had to sleep on a pull out couch in their Canadian council flat before he was discovered on video sharing website YouTube.

“That place was really dirty,” Justin said. “We had mousetraps everywhere because there were mouses — uh, mice — in the house. I didn’t have a real bed. I slept on a blue pull-out couch in my room.”

Now the 17-year-old singer has admitted he would love to play poverty stricken orphan Oliver Twist in a remake of the 1966 musical Oliver! because he can identify with the protagonist.

“We didn’t have anything in the fridge, except maybe luncheon meat for school and macaroni and cheese. I’d love to play Oliver Twist,” he said.
