Selena Gomez parents' firing was out of the blue

Monday April 14, 2014

Selena Gomez recently fired her parents as her managers, and new reports suggest that the sacking was completely out of the blue.

The pair had managed their daughter since her big break with Disney.

The 21-year-old pop star reportedly believes that she has outgrown her parents and that she is famous enough to have a manager who is more professional.

TMZ claims that Selena’s mother, Mandy Teefey, respects her daughter’s determination but is apparently having a hard time understanding the decision.

Selena, who this past weekend was hanging out with Kylie and Kendall Jenner at Coachella Music Festival, recently checked into rehab to "spend time on herself".

At an annual youth empowerment event designed to motivate young people to take action on local and global issues, she spoke candidly about the pressures she has been under throughout her career in the spotlight.

"I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought others would accept me for it. And I realised I don't know how to be anything but me."
