In the proud tradition of “my famous relative is a gazillionaire and I live in my own filth,” Justin Bieber’s grandpa has spoken to the British press about the squalor he is surrounded with no thanks to that no-goodnick grandchild of his.

Posing for the cameras in a stained T-shirt, George Bieber told The Sun that he sleeps on a dirty mattress in a two-room cabin that has a hole in the roof due to a tree that fell through it previously. No word on whether or not he owns a three-legged dog, but according to the Daily Mail his 56-year-old wife works 40 hours a week “hauling sacks of paint powder around.”

George says Justin is “too big for his britches” — which, come to think of it, could be why they are always halfway down his butt.
