Selena Gomez never really told her parents that she was firing them as her managers, it has been reported.
According to TMZ, Gomez’ parents were completely taken by surprise by the firing. Her mom Mandy Teefey told the site that they learned about it only when the news broke on Thursday.
Mandy tells us she thought last month’s conversation was just talk … and she’s having a hard time processing the fact that she’s no longer Selena’s manager.
Mandy says she respects her daughter’s decision … and plans to continue producing several movie projects with Selena, including the upcoming “The Sky Is Everywhere.”
As ENTmania! reported, Selena Gomez decided to drop her parents – who have been managing her since her days at Disney – saying that at 21, she’s outgrown them and now wants to have a professional manager with big stars as clients.
