Selena Gomez’s Mom: Shocked Over Firing

Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014 10:35 AM GMT

She’s relied on her mother Mandy Teefy to help her navigate her career thus far, so when Selena Gomez sent her packing, it was a bit unexpected.

According to TMZ, the “Wizards of Waverly Place” star was forced to confront the fact that she was firing her mom as manager after reports surfaced online that she was seeking new management.

And the decision can be traced back to Gomez’s desire to reunite with bad boy boyfriend Justin Bieber, a move her parents are vehemently against.

A source told Radar, “They're doing their best to supervise them. They don’t have any control over her. She's pulling the ‘Who makes the money around here?’ card.”
