Los Angeles: Singer Justin Bieber is reportedly looking for a relationship with actress Pamela Anderson following his split from singer Lionel Richie’s daughter Sofia Richie.

According to a source, Bieber is pursuing the “Baywatch” star and has been texting her, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“Justin (22) has had a thing for older women ever since he hooked up with Kourtney Kardashian. He met Pam (49) at the Grammys back in February but only recently started texting her, and when Justin wants a girl he pursues her hard,” the source told Star magazine.

According to the source, Anderson initially got “really freaked out” when Bieber got in touch because her son is only a few years younger than Justin.

“But she’s always been a sucker for a smooth-talking star, plus she thinks he could help boost her career,” the source added.
