Selena Gomez

Fires Mom & Dad

I'm Beyond Your Control

4/10/2014 9:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0410-selena-gomez-with-parents-getty-01She's 21, but Selena Gomez has just fired her mother and stepfather -- as her managers anyway.

Sources close to the singer tell TMZ, Selena axed her p-units Mandy and Brian Teefey last month, permanently relieving them of all duties related to the management of her career. Selena's parents had managed her since her big break at Disney.

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.

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.

As for who Selena wants to rep her, we're told she's still looking for the perfect candidate.

Paging Scooter Braun.

Good idea. At that age she doesn't need mommy and step-daddy all around her. She's an adult. It's weird when celebrities in there 20s & 30s have parents as managers. It's to close to home. They should get a real job & stop taking from their child.

Can't stand her face, all compressed and squished. I understand TMZ has to post articles about her every single day because she's the token Mexican around here, but seriously, even among Mexicans I've seen much better just walking down the street. Don't understand the hype. Just keepin' it real yo.

Her parents are correct to suggest she dump Bieber and clean up her act. She may just be screwing up her life even more by dumping her folks.

I can't believe she kept them as long as she did! It's never a wise idea to have family as management even if it appears as a good fit.

What great decisions she's making lately. Drinking, getting back with Bieber, and now this. For a while I thought she was a smart girl, but it is clear now she's a typical airhead pop star like Britney, Christina, Miley, etc.

Why were they managers in the first place? The girl is 21. Let her be an adult.

Since she's back with Bieber why, oh why, doesn't this surprise me? She's the next celebrity trainwreck-in-training.
