Selena Gomez Hires New Manager

by at . Comments

Selena Gomez may be exercising people from her personal life (so long, Kendall and Kylie Jenner!).

But she just added an important individual to her professional life.

A couple weeks after Gomez fired her parents as managers, sources tell Us Weekly that she has hired Bradford Cobb for the gig. He also manages Katy Perty and Adam Lambert.

Happy Selena Gomez

Selena reportedly took her parents by complete surprise in relieving them of their positions, with many wondering whether a family beef was to blame for the move.

Mom Mandy Teefy and stepdad Brian Teefey, after all, famously do NOT approve of Selena dating Justin Bieber again.

But others simply say Selena is looking to take a new, mature step in her career and wanted a proven manager at the helm.

Cobb was listed as one of Billboard's 40 executives under 40 in July 2013 and played a key role in turning Perry into a mega star.

Gomez, meanwhile, enjoyed her first-ever number-one album with 2013's "Stars Dance" and is hoping to make a similar impact on pop music.
