Selena Gomez's Parents: Blindsided By Firing!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Selena Gomez's mother and stepfather are saying they had no warning that Gomez was firing them as her manager until the story hit the Internet last week.

Selena Gomez's Mom

Mandy Teefey says she and her husband sat down with Selena Thursday after the story was broken by TMZ and reported by tons of celebrity gossip sites.

Now that the rumor's out in the open, Mandy asked point blank if Selena was absolutely sure she wanted to move in a different direction. She said yes.

Just the same, Teefey is reportedly having a hard time processing the fact that she's no longer Selena's manager, which Gomez has hinted at for months.

Selena's mom and stepdad had managed the 21-year-old star since her big break at Disney years ago, but lately, there's been frustration on her end.

Gomez told her parents she'd outgrown them and wanted bigger management and that her folks were out of their depth ... nothing personal, just honest.

No hard feelings, either. Mandy says she respects her daughter's decision and still plans to produce several Gomez movies, including The Sky Is Everywhere.

As for Selena and Justin Bieber ... we have no idea how Mandy feels about those two slapping bodies again, but we can't imagine she's a big fan.

Just a hunch.
