It was just a few nights ago that Selena Gomez was a little shaky on her feet as she met up with Justin Bieber at a Miami studio. Now comes even more trouble for the already-troubled singer. Selena Gomez has fired her mother and stepfather as her managers – this according to TMZ.
Selena wants a new image and feels her parents are hindering that. She feels that she has made a name for herself and wants a professional manager, not her mommy and daddy, managing her career. She believes it is a good career decision, but others have speculated that she is tired of being under the watchful eye of her parents, especially with the disdain they have for Justin Bieber. TMZ’s sources say that while her mother Mandy and stepfather Brian are not happy with the decision, the family remains close. They go on to say that Selena’s decision was not based on friction and fighting over her relationship with Justin Bieber, but we find the timing quite suspicious.
Selena is apparently still looking for the best manager to take over the handling of her career at this point, but has not yet hired anyone. Given Selena’s recent partying, short stint in rehab, and relationship issues with Justin Bieber it seems that whether her team admits it or not, she was tired of having her mother and father aware of everything she does and her whereabouts at all times. She likely feels she’ll have more freedom with a professional manager. We’re still hoping Selena comes around and dumps Bieber before it is too late.
