It’s a downward spiral waiting to happen. She’s now supposedly back together with hot mess Justin Bieber who is having a downward spiral of his own and now Selena Gomez is distancing herself from the most influential people in her life…her own parents…by FIRING them!
TMZ is reporting that Selena just fired her mother and her stepfather as her managers!
Sources close to the singer tell TMZ, Selena axed her p-units Mandy and Brian Teefey last month, permanently relieving them of all duties related to the management of her career. Selena’s parents had managed her since her big break at Disney.
We’re told Selena feels she’s outgrown her parents. She believes she’s now old enough — and famous enough — to have a seasoned professional manager with other A-list clients.
Selena has argued plenty with her parents over the direction of her career — not to mention over dating Justin Bieber — but we’re told family friction was NOT the reason for the split. We’re told Selena remains close with both of her parents, although they’re not happy about the decision.
So is it really about “outgrowing” her parents as managers? I highly doubt that. My guess is she is sick and tired of them trying to save her from the disaster that is waiting to happen, that she will unfortunately have to figure out on her own.
Selena does what she wants, yo even if it means cutting her ‘rents from the payroll.
