According to a slew of recent rumors, there’s one woman in the world who does not like Justin Bieber.

But she’s a pretty important woman.

And her opinion may have a lot do with whether or not Bieber ends up with the presumptive love of his life.

Mandy Teefey and Selena Gomez

As you’ve likely read about by now and grew very concerned over, Bieber and Selena Gomez are on a break.

Insiders swear this is not a break up and that the stars will eventually find their way back to each other, but this may not actually be up to Justin or Selena.

It may be up to the latter’s mother.

Indeed, multiple outlets have claimed of late that Mandy Teefy does not approve of her daughter’s rekindled romance with Bieber.

It’s not exactly hard to see why, either, considering all the ways in which Justin has broken Selena’s heart over the years.

It would be almost weird if Mandy was totally cool with her child and Bieber bumping uglies again, wouldn’t it?

"Justin’s family loves Selena, but Selena’s family has put her in a very conflicting spot because they still don’t trust Justin," Us Weekly reported about three weeks ago, adding at the time:

"Selena and Justin decided to take a break mainly because of Selena’s mom and her disapproval of Justin."

Is this really accurate?

And, if so, how does Teefy feel about Bieber in the wake of Selena and Justin trying to appease her via various conversations and promises?

E! News caught up to Mandy on Wednesday evening at the Alliance for Children’s Rights 26th Annual Dinner in Beverly Hills, where she at first told the website/network why this organization means a lot to her.

"I really love what they do," Mandy said, adding:

"I was adopted and to have that support and everybody coming together to support getting people out of the foster system, I think is really important."

Okay, great, fine.

It’s definitely a great cause.

But let’s get to what’s truly important here, shall we?

What is going on with Jelena, pictured above from one of their first attempts at a relationship many years ago?

"You would know before I did," Teefy said in response. "We don’t talk about it."

Doesn’t sound like an endorsement, does it?

Doesn’t sound as if Many and Selena have had the kind of in-depth chats about her love life that we had thought, either.

We really can’t say what this means for the future of Bieber and Gomez as a couple, but it doesn’t sound as if they have Mandy’s mother’s blessing, that’s for sure.

Will they simply not worry about it? Will the tension be too much for Selena to bear?

Will Bieber make some grand gesture to win Teefy over?

Stay tuned, celebrity gossip fans. Maybe we’ll find out!
