According to a report exclusively by TMZ, Selena Gomez has fired her parents Mandy and Brian Teefy as managers. A source close to Selena reported to TMZ that the 21 year old singer axed her ‘rents sometime last moth to pursue a more professional A-List manager. Apparently family friction or Justin Bieber were not to blame, and Selena maintains a close relationship with her parental unit.
Many entertainment sources are speculating that Selena has her eyes on Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber’s manager. Braun has recently flopped with acts like Carly Rae Jepsen and The Wanted, who have sported disappointing record sales and fan turnout at events. Even Bieber fever has cooled way down, with less than notable record sales and movie ticket sales for the “Believe” star. In a nutshell, hiring Scooter Braun as your manager might not be a great move in the present time.
Gomez, like most of the other stars from her Disney Channel class, is trying to break into the world of adult, and somehow not tarnish her squeaky clean image. Gomez did spend time in Rehab earlier this year for unconfirmed reasons. Her pal Demi Lovato also infamously completed a rehabilitation treatment program for drug abuse and other psychological disorders back in 2012. Somehow Miley Cyrus is the only one left from that Disney era who hasn’t had a vacation in rehab yet. Whoever Gomez chooses for her new management has to be a strategic decision for her to take her career to the next level.
