Selena Gomez’s Family Issues Apparently Have Nothing to Do with Justin Bieber
Apparently, Justin Bieber isn't to blame for the drama between Selena Gomez and her mom, Mandy Teefey, despite reports that syurfaced a few weeks ago. According to E! News, the singer's relationship with her mom was strained long before she got back together with the “Sorry” singer. As previously reported, Mandy was rushed to the hospital after allegedly freaking out when she learned how serious Jelena's reunion was.
However, new reports state their mother-daughter issues have nothing to do with Justin. In fact, rumor has it they've had a strained relationship ever since Selena decided to fire Mandy as her manager in 2014. “Selena has always said that the one person that means the most to her is her mom, Mandy,” a source told the website. “But still, they've had a really complicated relationship and have gone through a lot of ups and downs.”
The source explained that Selena and Mandy didn't speak to each other for an entire year. “It caused a huge rift in their relationship. Mandy wouldn't even let Selena talk to her sister for a long time,” the insider revealed. “Mandy and Selena's stepdad [Brian Teefey] really did everything they could for Selena so when she fired her it took a toll on Mandy emotionally and professionally.”
But by June 2015, it appeared as though the two had made amends after Selena shared an adorable throwback photo with her mom. “The reason I wake up every morning. She's the reason I am who I am. Every part of me is her. I love you momma. I'm proud to be your daughter,” she wrote.
The two later worked on the super successful Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why, even though Mandy allegedly had a “really hard time” getting it off the ground. Since then, everything seemed fine between the two until Selena and Justin got back together in November.
Multiple reports suggested that Selena's family did not approve of her and Justin's reconciliation. “Justin is aware Selena’s family is not thrilled they are hanging out,” a source told People. “They think he caused Selena a lot of grief. Justin hopes he can prove to them that he has changed.”
However, sources tell E! News that Justin has been nothing but supportive. “Selena is dealing with some family issues at the moment and Justin is there for her. He doesn't want to cause any problems between Selena and her mom,” the source added. “Justin and Selena are still together.”
So where exactly does that leave Selena and her mom? Well, ever since their argument earlier this month, fans noticed that Selena unfollowed Mandy on Instagram. That could only mean that things between the two of them are still a little rocky. We don't know for sure what's causing the two to argue again, but we really hope that they can find a way to overcome it.
