Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey, doesn’t love that she’s back with her ex. To the point where Mandy had a breakdown and went to the hospital because she couldn’t deal with it.
However, we’re hearing a claim that there’s more to Selena’s tensions with her mom than the Biebs.
And apparently, it’s a beef that goes back for years.
Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey, was distressed — to the point where she required hospitalization — when she learned that Selena and Justin are in couples therapy.
This isn’t one of those Scientology things where Mandy’s just super anti-therapy or whatever.
No, what had Mandy so bent out of shape was the haunting, ugly realization that Selena’s little reunion with Justin wasn’t just a temporary thing.
Selena seems to be serious about resuming her relationship with the Biebs.
And quite frankly, that’s every mother’s nightmare.
No, this isn’t just about the fact that Justin Bieber isn’t hot anymore.
This is a bit more serious.
The reason that Selena Gomez’s whole family hates Justin is because they had front-row seats to the damage that her relationship with him did to mental health and her emotional well-being.
Now they’re watching her fight Lupus and are worried that she’ll soon be fighting on two fronts as Justin’s personal issues and bad behavior once again take their toll on the talented singer.
Besides, he wasted years of her youth before she got Lupus. Even if his behavior is totally different now, that’s not something that a mother could forgive easily.
If at all.
However, E! reports that there’s more putting a strain on Selena’s relationship with her mom than just her choice in penises.
“Selena has always said that the one person that means the most to her is her mom, Mandy.”
However, this source says that not everything’s perfect in their dynamic.
“But still, they’ve had a really complicated relationship and have gone through a lot of ups and downs.”
Everybody has their ups and downs — even if you have a great relationship with your mom.
But apparently, for Selena, the low points could be really, really low.
There was apparently an “entire year” during which Selena and Mandy didn’t speak, after Selena dropped Mandy as her manager back in 2014.
“It caused a huge rift in their relationship. Mandy wouldn’t even let Selena talk to her sister for a long time.”
That sounds awful.
“Mandy and Selena’s stepdad really did everything they could for Selena.”
That stepdad being Brian Teefey. Though, to be fair, that’s your obligation as parents. You don’t get a prize for that.
“So when she fired her it took a toll on Mandy emotionally and professionally.”
“Mandy lost her clout as a manager after Selena left. It caused a major rift in their relationship but they eventually reconnected.”
Honestly? We’re totally Team Mandy when it comes to the resurrection of Jelena.
(We do think that she’s going about it the wrong way. Just say a few words, then outwardly accept it, suffer in silence, and then offer her a shoulder to cry on when she realizes her mistake)
But, based on this, it sounds like Selena was in the right back in 2014. She was, what, 22?
That’s old enough to have a manager that’s not your mom. It sounds like Mandy may have just taken that the wrong way.
