NEW YORK – Millions of girls around the globe swoon for teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, buying his music, bursting into tears at his very presence and calling themselves Beliebers.
But The Biebs is just like any 18-year-old boy in love with his first serious girlfriend, 20-year-old cutie Selena Gomez. And as older women can do, she’s making him crazy in love.
(Now Biebs knows how all those fans feel.)
But while Bieber is head over heels with his singer-actress galpal, his management is “totally over it,” a source tells FOX411. They want the “Boyfriend” crooner to fall out from whatever spell the pretty "Wizards of Waverly Place" star has him under.
“Justin is completely in love with her, crazy over her, but she’s the only one he listens to, and that’s not good,” a Bieber insider says. “He does whatever Selena tells him to do. It gets so bad that his management calls Selena when they really want Justin to do something, and they ask her to ask him to do it, then he does. She's got his heart and ear.”
The source adds that Bieber sees his on-again off-again girlfriend as “older and wiser” and trusts her opinion amid a sea of people constantly advising him on what to do, but his team sees the relationship as just another obstacle they have to deal with.
“They don’t want to see them back together and they don’t want all the back and forth between them,” says the source. “It’s not a good look to have him publicly begging and pining for her. His team has to stay in her good graces to get through to him, and it’s child games.”
Bieber and Gomez have been all over the map with their relationship status the past month -- one night Biebs is flirting with Victoria Secret models, the next he’s cozying up to Gomez in public, the next they are fighting.
And surprisingly, Gomez seems to be the one pulling the strings. On Nov. 11, she was spotted at WIP nightclub dancing with girlfriends while "Bieber was texting her all night,” says an eyewitness. “She was having fun, he wanted to meet up with her later.”
The twosome were then spotted backstage together at the American Music Awards on Nov. 18, but did not make a public appearance together. They followed that up with a date at Benihana in Encino, Calif.
It remains to be seen if they will be sharing turkey and stuffing on Thanksgiving.
