Blood is thicker than water, but is bad blood even thicker? Selena Gomez is finding out the hard way as her beef with her mom has escalated again. A rift opened up by her reunion with Justin Bieber is spilling over from Selena’s personal life and into her professional one. Mandy recently revealed how she tried to stop her daughter from working with alleged sexual abuser Woody Allen.
Mandy was reacting to the death of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan on Instagram. In the comments on her post commemorating the “Zombie” singer, one of Selena’s fans told Mandy that she should convince Selena to issue an apology for working with Woody. Mandy’s infamous past as Selena’s momager must’ve had fans believing she could still influence her daughter.
Mandy set the record straight in a reply to that comment, writing, “No one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click. No one controls her, She makes all her own decisions”
Mandy’s comments come just as Selena’s co-star Timothée Chalamet has issued a public apology for working with Allen. In an Instagram post, Timothée revealed that he was contractually obligated not to not to answer questions about his work with Woody.
