Selena Gomez' Parents

BLINDSIDED By Firing

EXCLUSIVE

0411-selena-gomez-and-parents-getty-01Selena Gomez's mom claims she got ZERO warning that the singer was axing her as her manager ... until TMZ broke the story.

Selena's mom Mandy Teefey says she and Selena's stepdad sat down with the singer Thursday after TMZ's story ... and asked Selena if she was absolutely sure she wanted to move in a different direction. Selena said yes.

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.

Selena's mom and stepdad had managed the 21-year-old since her big break at Disney -- but as we reported, Selena told her parents she'd outgrown them and wanted bigger management.

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."

I know this question has nothing to do with the article. But does Selena have a lisp when she speaks?

She either found out the were robbing her blind or she's realized they suck as managers and have stunted her growth for far too long but I wouldn't be surprised if kris jenner is behind this

If her parents were still managing her there's no way she'd be able to eventually do a sex tape. Now all she needs to do is find someone who is willing to do her on camera, even with that squishy face.

Successful Hollywood people are surrounded by people that love them...not the bottomfeeder yesmen.

Big mistake Selena.

Makes sense. She is still a little girl in the public eye winning a nickelodeon kids choice award this year, and her songs being on radio Disney and winning teen choice awards. She is still stuck with that kid demo while Miley has moved on as well as others like Zac Efron. Cut the chord and break free of that chastity belt.

I hope she's taking acting classes still. I saw spring breakers and she was no affect at all & was a shadow. She's good at pretending to have talent and pretending to look like a star but still hasn't put in the physical work in the grown up market.

Selena's mother & stepdad have done just fine until now (unlike other parentmanagers). Just wondering if Selena is making the right decision. Wondering under new management is she gong to change her wholesome image so she can be more like Bieb. Ain't love grand!
