If one can't get a piece of Justin Bieber, it seems something from her mother is the next best thing.

That just may have been what somebody was thinking when he or she decided to take an item that belonged to the pop star's mom.

"Got mobbed at the mall! Someone stole my favorite light brown sweater (chalaco)!" Pattie Mallette tweeted on Monday, Nov. 11.

The 37-year-old author didn't give any more specifics about the incident, but she is clearly hoping to get the article of clothing back.

"Please bring it to the hotel & give it to security," she wrote.

Meanwhile, Mallette is continuing to plug her best-selling memoir Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom, which she has said is aimed at helping teens cope with bullying and anxiety.

She is also dabbling in film, having recently produced the short Crescendo starring Ali Landry, money from which is benefiting crisis pregnancy centers.
