Selena Gomez’s Parents Found Out They Were Fired At The Same Time You Did

Selena Gomez and her mother Mandy attending clothing launch October 2008There are a lot of reasons I wouldn’t want to be famous, but I think one of the biggest is that the entire world gets to know your business, sometimes before you even know it yourself.

At least that was the case for Selena Gomez‘s former managers (and current parents!) who apparently found out they were fired in the same way that we did — from the internet. Selena’s mom, Mandy, and her stepdad, Brian Teefey have managed Selena’s career since her break on Wizards Of Waverly Place, and their only indication that Selena was considering more professional management came from a conversation they’d had a month or so before.

But they’d thought she was still in the decision-making process, so they were completely blindsided when TMZ broke the story that Selena had decided to part ways with them. Instead of hearing it from her, Mandy and Brian heard it from a website, which only makes me more  worried about Selena. That’s such out-of-control behavior to slight your parents like that! They had to ask Selena to sit down with them after the story came out and ask if it was really what she wanted. She said it was, and even though they’re ‘vehemently opposed’ to parting ways, there’s really nothing they can do.

Selena ‘feels that she’s outgrown them’, and since she’s the one with the paychecks in this situation, she can pretty much do whatever she wants. According to Radar Online:

‘They don’t have any control over her. She’s pulling the, “Who makes the money around here?” card.’

Mandy is apparently claiming to respect her daughter’s decision, but I can’t imagine she’s any less worried than I am to see Selena following in the footsteps of so many troubled stars before her. People like Amanda BynesLindsay Lohan, and Demi Lovato. It’s some pretty scary stuff, so we hope everything turns out okay.

      It seems like Selena Gomez is going through a bit of a rebellious phase… hopefully that’s all it is.

      Did you see the item on Blind Gossip yesterday that seems to be implying Kris Jenner is trying to become her manager? That’s a scary thought.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I did see it! Horrifying!

        that would explain Selena’s sudden desire to frolick with the ‘don’t really do much’ jenner girls

        Kris Jenner denied that rumor so it’s fake. So this may also be not entirely true as well.

      How about you stop mimicking or copy pasting other gossip sites and get a more legit story. She has been having meetings around town for a while. There are photographic evidence of that. This is no surprise to them, so why not be better than other gossip site and proof check your shit. or atleast investigate better and not look like parrots.
