Selena Gomez has fired her parents, Mandy and Brian Teefey, as her managers, reports TMZ.com. Her parents had managed her career since she found success on the Disney Channel.
The actress and singer, now 21, starred on the Disney series “Wizards of Waverly Place."
“We're told Selena feels she's outgrown her parents. She believes she's now old enough — and famous enough — to have a seasoned professional manager with other A-list clients,” the story reports.
The report adds: “Selena has argued plenty with her parents over the direction of her career — not to mention over dating Justin Bieber — but we're told family friction was NOT the reason for the split. We're told Selena remains close with both of her parents, although they're not happy about the decision.”
