Selena Gomez has just fired her mother Mandy and stepfather Brian Teefey as her managers, reports TMZ. Selena permanently relieved them of all duties related to the management of her career who managed her since Disney.
Selena feels she’s outgrown her parents and believes she’s now old enough to have a seasoned professional manager with other A-list clients. Selena argued with her parents over the direction of her career and dating Justin Bieber.
Those issues were NOT the reason for the split. Selena remains close with both of her parents, although they’re not happy about the decision. Selena and Mandy are great parents, but Selena is getting older so it seems practical.
Selena has signed with Steve Jensen and Martin Kirkup’s Direct Management home of Katy Perry. Selena’s four album deal with Disney’s Hollywood Records is up this year and she has been meeting with various record labels, reports HitsDailyDouble.
