Selena Gomez thinks she’s a big girl now, which means she no longer wants her parents, Mandy and Brian Teefey, as managers. Before you jump to conclusions, they weren’t stealing her money or doing anything shady, and in fact they’re the ones who’ve been managing her since she got her first break at Disney. So why the pink slip?
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.
As for who Selena wants to rep her, we’re told she’s still looking for the perfect candidate.
So basically, this is her way at getting back at her parents for telling her she should stay away from dirtbag Bieber, right? We don’t need no stinkin’ parents! We’re grown! You can’t tell me what to do! (I’m rolling my eyes.)
That being said, I do think it’s possible for you to “outgrow” a professional relationship, but unless there’s something that they’re not doing for her that she thinks some other manager can, it’s really some petty bullshit. Let me guess – next she’ll be managed by Scooter Braun?
