Selena Gomez Apparently Just Fired Her Managers Again, So Viva La Downward Spiral

Selena Gomez raising arms cheering GIFEven though she just started working with them, Selena Gomez has reportedly fired her brand new managers and hired another team. And in case this story already sounds familiar, it’s because she did this exact thing a few months ago when she fired her mom and stepdad as managers. This is trouble, guys.

They’d managed her for pretty much her entire career when she abruptly dropped them, with reports alleging that they found out they were fired the same way we did — from the internet. At that point, she moved to Direct Management and began working with Steve Jensen and Mark Kirkup, who are employees there. They also manage Katy Perry, but apparently they weren’t up to Selena’s baffling standards, because she’s allegedly kicked them to the curb after just a month of working together.

Pretty head-spinningly fast, no? But wait, there’s more! According to reports, Selena has already hired someone new – Aleen Kesheshian, who also manages the careers of people like Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana and Laura Linney. Hopefully she’ll stick with them for a while, but I have a feeling that she’ll be parting ways with them soon to take up with someone new.

And if you’re wondering why I think that, it’s because I’ve seen this before, and so have you. Selena’s going through the same patterns that many celebrities go through in their downward spiral. They start behaving erratically, distancing themselves from longtime employees and family members, assuming that they’re the reason their career is stalled, when really usually they’re their own worst enemies. We’ve seen it with Amanda Bynes, we’ve seen it with Britney Spears, and we’re seeing it now with Selena.

I’m sure that Selena’s fans will find ways to explain away her behavior, but the bottom line is that this girl is telling us quite loudly that something is seriously up with her.

    This isn’t going to end well.

    And what baffling standards are those? I mean if you’re gonna say she has unreasonable standards when you can’t even list them, you pretty much sound like an imbecile.

    Celebrities hire and change management teams all the time yet that isn’t an indication that their life has gone down hill. Keira Knightly changed management teams quite a few times in her career yet nobody assumes the worst about her.

    Your assumptions are best laughable and only worthy of an eye roll.

    According to direct management, they never actually signed any contracts, they were just one of the teams she was considering and she decided not to go in that direction. Hardly a downward spiral, just a girl making a decision about the direction she wants to go in.

    Such a biased news report. Quite disgusting that you’re ‘rooting’ for someone to go through a personal struggle. Why anyone would enjoy watching another scenario similar to Amanda Bynes or Britney Spears baffles me. Grow up.

    Yet again Britney Spears is a successful artist in the music industry. Amanda Bynes is an actress where’s it’s a slow process to find a leading role because 75 percent of the actors are female. Regardless of what some people think, Selena can sing and act, she has a huge fan base and Justin Bieber.

    Oh well

    Just another case of if I work with well known managers who manage well known stars maybe my career will be less pathetic, and maybe I won’t have to resort to exposing myself soon. Jesus can she be anyone of a train wreak? SELENA GO BACK TO MOMMY!that’s you’re best bet. Everyone knows Mandy is a fierce momager and the only reason why Selena has gotten anywhere. Because her mom harasses people.

    Hopefully they can set her on the right track with the likes of the other actresses they rep! Maybe this was a good choice…as long as she keeps with it! and to the BS comments below…if she wants to be a successful industry puppet then yes, the destruction path would be very successful, but if she wants to be taken seriously, then that is up to her to make happen!

    Do people honestly think Selena Gomez is going to be a long-term star? She’s fun but her singing is hardly incredible and her acting might pass on the Disney channel but she’s left that now. And this is coming from a fan.
    I don’t want to see her sink into obscurity and have her dreams crushed but I don’t see her staying a star without becoming either more talented or more independent from her handlers.
