Selena Gomez Fires Her Manager Parents & It's All Justin Bieber's Fault

Selena GomezSelena Gomez has parted ways with her manager parents, and rumor has it that their disapproval of on-again-off-again-on-again boyfriend Justin Bieber is what finally led to the rift.

The pop star's mom and stepdad, Mandy and Brian Teefey, have been managing her since her breakthrough Disney days on Wizards of Waverly Place, but apparently they severed their professional relationship last month.

Sources told TMZ that Selena feels like she's "outgrown her parents" and that the family friction was not the reason for the split, despite their disapproval of her decision to keep going back to Bieber.

Regardless of the reason, it seems that split is amicable, and even though we're first hearing of it, it's nothing new. Not only have they now been "separated" for a month, a friend says that they've been talking about it since late last year. "This has been going on for awhile," the source said. "This didn't just happen yesterday."

Her parents continue to support her and they remain close, which just further intensifies our perception of their disapproval of the Biebs. The official parting of ways came just after Selena supposedly got back together with him? They disapprove of the relationship but remain supportive of her?

Sounds like her parents are taking a needed step back (regardless of whose choice it was) and letting Selena take control of her life make her own mistakes.

And we're pretty sure Justin Bieber is a mistake at this point in time.

Do you think Justin had anything to do with Selena's parents retiring as her managers?

Why are you running with a misleading headline that's completely unfair to Justin Bieber when you yourself say in your article he is not to blame?

It's irresponsible and cruel.

If essentially lying is "conservative" vaules, I'm out.

Why is it everytime Selena Gomez does something, it's always Justin Bieber's fault? Haven't they been split up for over two years now?

Why would it be beibers fault? Does he have anything to do with her singing or her parents? I guess some emotional stuff, but why would Selena say, "You're fired because Justin is a jerk!" Unless he was a part of her managing and the only way to get rid of him was to fire her parents? I mean don't listen to me, I'm just thinking. Selena still loves her parents, and they stick by her. Who cares if she fired them? As long as she is fine and so are her parents, why does this matter? There is really nothing to do with beiber.

Ridiculous that every time something bad, or seemingly bad happens in Gomez's life it's Justin's fault, but if anything good happens he isn't mentioned.

And you call yourself an objective writer?

Shame on you.

Never forget we are constantly bombarded with Media Lies and Hater BS.

Selena Gomez dumps Family, BFFs, Handlers and their agendas. FINALLY, YES!

Justin has been accused of many things. ZERO convictions! JUST THE FACTS!

Together or apart, Selina Gomez and Justin Bieber will be just fine. GIVEN!

What a great day putting the screws to naysayers and haters. ANALYZE THIS!
