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.
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.
