Selena Gomez Fired Parents As Manager

Selena Gomez On A Music Video ShootSelena 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.

    Sorry Selena,no one can save your career now.Maybe mama Jenner can get you a spot on KUWTK if you hire her.

    Revise this post Ocean Up. The errors irk me…

  • Eva

    That said, it is high time she had a different manager… Her mom must be busy with Gracie and it is in her best interests to have someone unattached giving her career advice. Lately she seems aimless. And of of course I support her mother and Brian on the Bieber thing.

    Mandy shouldn’t have kicked her out of the house and made her live in a hotel.Selena showed them.

    • Mirela

      Mandy never kicked Selena out. It was Selena’s choice to go to a hotel for what seems a week. You people and victimizing Selena. God.

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Not surprised, her career hasn’t been going anywhere just stuck on a plateau. Her career is tanking faster than Titanic. Bring on the drama.

    • thecat61

      It’s time for Selena to cut the umbilical cord.

  • Nya

    • givemeatime

    You guys are so pathetic . CRing so much about Selena and her life and how she’s going “nowhere” while she has millions and y’all are on ur computer complaining.

    • Marina And My Diamonds

      You don’t know who is rich on here or not. I’m just pointing that out.

      • Commonsense

        You’re right; it doesn’t matter still doesn’t make it okay to harass someone online.

    i think she did good by firing her parents i mean she’s 21 not a kid and her parents only goth her bad movies like the getaway and monte carlo. hotel transilavania and spring breakers where good. but she needs to do comedies or drama. and stop with the albums.selena is not the first actress to fired her parents or the last but she needs to work with serious people.

  • nina

    maybe she should consider going back to school, take some acting classes, study the art if she really loves acting. or consider other options since a career in hollywood doesn’t last long for anybody

    • Ali

      Right? I remember when Reese Witherspoon was what JLaw is today, and now she is struggling. Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep cases are extremely rare

  • shanghai

    Surprised she kept them so long. Its OK when you are starting out as a Disney starlet but even then I would not trust Disney not to screw you over on negotiations. You need a tough professional company to represent you. She has far outgrown Mum and Dad as agents. Too bad for them they will have to get a real job!

  • Guest1

    All you people saying she has a “substance problem,” y’all don’t even know anything. Stop assuming shit.

  • lily

    no record label is gonna sign someone who cant sing. shes wasting her time! she really has no career

    • Anon

      Not true, the reason she will most likely get a record deal is because she comes with a built in fan base & labels are more concerned about making money not who has the most talent

  • FuckHarry

    Maybe this will be a good career move for her, she needs to do something a movie, music ect cause now she’s kinda only in the media/news cause of Bieber.

    • Ali

      I think she needs take a break of the spotlight or she will get nothing on movies, but this decision also could kill her singing career. Time to choose

  • Ali

    My cousin was an only child for fourteen years. So her parents had another baby and while she loved her baby sister she started acting all strange and rebel and it was just because she didn’t have her parents full attention anymore. She got over it after a while. I know Selena is older but sometimes I think she is doing the same, but I hope not

  • Nooooo
  • Jasmine

    And so it begins…

  • Jamie

    She has more drama than any reality tv star, like of course granted her talent is mediocre, but that doesn’t mean she has to use her toxic relationship just to garner a spot in trashy tabloids. She is trashy as hell!

  • Nina

    Nothing will save her career.
    She simply has no talent or anything to make her so special to stand out on her own, and by on her own I mean without those PR stunts her parents did and she did with jumping from celebrity to celebrity to make the news. Bieber might have a bad image now but he’s been very relevant and successful on his own and made more money in 4 years then her in 10. Plus she was with Disney, he had to collect fans from youtube. She benefited so much from him and her fans need to stop denying it, he didn’t make her famous he made her relevant and popular and on bigger star level. Before only these small kids who watch Disney knew her, her show wasn’t as popular as her fans say either. Hannah Montana was a huge movie and show and overshadowed her and Demi but Demi was way more talented as a singer so she stood out. Selena always was just a pretty face with good behavior, which is comming to question lately. Don’t blame Bieber for all her problems, they only meet up for a day or two to make drama in months.

    • adam

      I agree on a few things. I am a devoted smiler but still have a place in my heart for Selena and demi. This is prob best for her in my opinion. She’s 21, since stars dance her career has been at a stand still. She needs a new agent and manager. I know everyone hates her pop career but i would like to see her do one more album at least…a sexy adult pop album. Starsdance was not that bad honestly it has some good pop songs. She needs a “Britney/xtina/Miley” era where she can finally LEAVE DISNEY AND HOLLYWOOD RECORDS. They are shit honestly they did it to Hilary then miley now Selena

  • :)

    Lol she shouldn’t be allowed to wear tops like that, her stomach bulging out, why can’t she just focus on toning her body, stop drinking alcohol, take some vocal lessons and stop sucking bieber’s dong…she should be fine

    • Caitlyn D

      she does look a little doughy around her belly

  • thecat61

    Gee, I wonder if Bieber had any input on her decision?

    • Caitlyn D

      im sure beiber is giving her input all night long
