Justin Bieber is well on his way to becoming a free agent once again now that his relationship with Selena Gomez seems to be on the rocks, so it's no wonder he's being hunted by single ladies.
But Jenny McCarthy really wasn't shy in showing the teen heartthrob how she feels about him.
As she handed him a gong during the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night, the 40-year-old Playboy model took the opportunity to nuzzle the singer's neck and seeing if he smells just as good as his range of perfumes suggest.
Not at all bothered by the age difference, the blonde bombshell jumped on the 18-year-old and kissed his neck while the young singer pretended to be shocked.
After being kissed three or four times by the notorious man eater, Justin told the audience jokingly: 'I feel violated right now.'
Justin picked up three gongs during the music awards gala and was accompanied by his 38-year old mother Pattie Mallette, after on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez failed to show.
And she seemed to be lapping up the attention on the red carpet, where here boy touchingly gave her a kiss on the cheek.
It will also no doubt do wonders for the sale of her new book Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom.
The 38-year-old fitted right in at the star-filled event after donning a figure-hugging wine-coloured dress.
And she was shrewd enough to step aside so Justin could ham it up for photographers while wearing a pair of sunglasses.
The pop favourite was certainly going for broke with his own look, donning a black cardigan, shiny matching T-shirt, quilted trousers and ridiculous red slippers, an ensemble that certainly grabbed plenty of attention.
