Selena Gomez has reportedly decided to part ways with her managers… Who also happen to be her parents.
The 21-year-old singer’s mother Mandy Teefey and stepfather Brian Teefey have managed her since she first big break on Disney’s "Wizards of Waverly Place." However, after 7 years, Selena finally decided to pull the plug.
Sources tell TMZ the “Come and Get It” singer made the move last month as she feels she’s outgrown her parents as managers. She believes she is famous enough to work with a more experienced professional manager.
Another source tells E! News one of Gomez’s potential options includes Katy Perry's manager Bradford Cobb.
Though Selena may have had plenty of arguments with her parents over her career (and her relationship with Justin Bieber), sources said family friction was not the cause of the split. Selena is still close with her parents, though they do not agree with her decision.
We can’t help but wonder if Selena’s rekindling with on-again off-again beau Justin Bieber has anything to do with her ultimate decision. After all, the two situations both fall at the exact same time and the news comes right after Gomez was snapped visiting the Biebs in Miami.
