Selena Gomez's mom was asked how she feels about Justin Bieber, and her response is brutal
The rekindled romance of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez has brought with it plenty of headlines. The two singers, who first begun their relationship when they were young teenagers, have found their way back to each other after many years apart. However, despite an outpouring of love from their respective fans, some people aren't happy about the romance - chiefly, Selena's mom.
It has been widely reported that since she has found out that her daughter is back with Biebs, Mandy Teefey and Selena have been struggling to see eye-to-eye with one another. Such is the scale of the conflict, it was rumored that Mandy ended up in hospital due to a falling out that she had with her daughter.
Despite the continued reports regarding her feelings toward to the relationship, Mandy has stayed quiet. Until now.
In an interview with Gossip Cop, the '13 Reasons Why' producer discussed her relationship with Selena and her feelings towards Justin Bieber. Mandy also opened up about a host of other issues, including the kidney transplant operation that her daughter underwent last year.
Speaking about the ordeal, Mandy said: “When you are young, you feel invincible and she had to learn that she was not able to be your typical 20-year-old.” Teefey also says that the family were “beyond blessed that we had Francia[the organ doner] in our life." The mother recalls being a “wreck inside not only for my daughter, but for Francia and her family” during the time of the procedure. She went as far to joke that, “I am pretty sure I am banned from that hospital [now].”
It's believed that the rift between Selena and her mother began to widen after she and her husband stopped managing their daughter's career in 2014. “Every mother and daughter has disagreements. We never expected to manage her whole life. We lost family time because the only time we saw her, we talked business,” she explains. “It was no longer fun for any of us, like it was when she was younger and we had to be with her because she was a minor.”
However, it was when the subject changed to Selena and Justin that Mandy dished out the really interesting details. Speaking to Gossip Cop, Teefey revealed that she did not speak with Bieber during the whole kidney transplant ordeal. The mother claims that the two of them haven't even talked via text in "years'' and admitted that she is "not happy" with the newly rejuvenated romance. However, she didn't acknowledge that “Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy.”
"She is 25 years old and knows what is at stake with her health. I do not control her the way it has been portrayed. Selena is an adult and can make her own choices.”
Mandy clearly isn't happy with the romance and it's hardly surprising given Bieber's rep. Justin, if you want my advice, go and apologize for your former misdemeanors: it's never too late to say sorry.
