Selena Gomez axes her management team - her mother and stepfather

Selena Gomez has parted ways with her management team – her mother and stepfather.
TMZ has reported the 21-year-old actress and singer has sacked her mother Mandy and stepfather Brian Teefey as her management team last month.
The pair have managed her career since her big break on Disney with top series ‘Wizards of Waverley Place’.
Sources close to the star told TMZ that she felt she had “outgrown” her parents.
The singer permanently relieved her parents of all managerial duties last month.
TMZ report that the performer believes that she’s now old enough and famous enough to have a more experienced manager, who has experience with A-list stars.
Her on-off relationship with singer Justin Bieber (20) has caused some negative publicity for her career.
It is understood ‘family friction’ is not at the root of Selena’s decision to axe her parents as her management team, but she felt a change of direction was required.
It’s not clear who will represent Selena next, and she’s reportedly still looking at candidates.
Scooter Braun, who manages Justin Bieber and The Wanted, is reportedly favourite to get Selena’s signature.
