They did NOT see this one coming!
Selena Gomez recently fired her parents from their managerial roles, but what's really shocking is how her momma Mandy and step-father Brian Teefey found out about their axing!
They read about it on the internet!
After the story broke, the two 'rents sat down with Selena to ask her if she really did not want them as her managers anymore, and she confirmed the news!
And apparently her momma Mandy is still having trouble processing this information that she has been fired!
It isn't like they should have been completely blindsided by this news since Selena had mentioned to them about a month earlier that she was looking for a larger sized management team, but we guess Mandy didn't take her daughter all that seriously. After all - her parents had been with her ever since her first big break at Disney!
Although the former managers won't be guiding their daughter's career anymore, that doesn't mean they won't be able to partake in part of their daughter's life!
Mandy, who respects her daughter's decision, will even be involved with producing many of Selena's movies including the upcoming The Sky Is Everywhere!
So it isn't a total and complete break! They still get some part of the Selena Gomez pie!
