They had no idea it was coming...
TMZ reports that Selena Gomez's mother Mandy Teefey said that she had no idea that Gomez was going to fire her and Gomez's stepfather as her managers. After the story broke, the two sat down with Gomez and asked if she was sure she wanted to fire them. She said that she was.
Teefey said she thought the conversation was "just talk", and is having trouble dealing with the fact she doesn't manage her daughter anymore. The two have managed Gomez since she became a Disney star. Gomez told them that she had "outgrown" them and wanted "bigger management". Teefey respects Gomez's decision and plans to produce several movies with her, including The Sky Is Everywhere.
