'She can make her own choices': Selena Gomez's mother Mandy Teefey admits she's 'not happy' with her daughter reuniting with Justin Bieber
Selena Gomez's mom has opened up about her famous daughter's love life.
In an interview with Gossip Cop, Mandy Teefey, 41, has said that while she's 'not happy' about her 25-year-old daughter rekindling her romance with Justin Bieber, 23, 'Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy.'
The 13 Reasons Why producer also admitted she hasn't spoken to the Sorry singer in 'years', even via text, despite her daughter having had a kidney transplant last summer.

She told Gossip Cop: 'Selena is an adult and can make her own choices.'
Teefey also debunked claims that she's no longer acting as her daughter's manager because of ongoing tensions between herself, Selena and Selena's stepfather Brian Teefey, who also managed the Wolves songstress' career.
'We never expected to manage her her whole life,' she said of giving up the role in 2014.
'We lost family time because the only time we saw her, we talked business.'

It has been widely reported that Mandy was 'upset' after she rekindled her romance with pop sensation Justin Bieber.
But Selena Gomez and her momager Mandy Teefey have allegedly had a 'strained' relationship for over three years after they parted ways as manager and client.
As the singer bounced back with a new executive team in 2014, the breakdown of the pair's professional relationship 'caused a major rift' between the mother and daughter, an insider told E! News.

Despite eventually reconnecting, this report came shortly after the Bad Liar songstress and her former manager had a 'heated conversation' over on/off beau Justin Bieber, which led to a voluntary 'welfare' check-up.
According to TMZ, Selena's family will 'never forgive him or accept [Justin]' for their complicated split in 2014.
A source told the website that Mandy was taken to a welfare center in Los Angeles for a health check 'at a family member's request.'

Following his split from Sofia Richie and her separation from The Weeknd, the pair began to meet up again in November.
Justin and Selena started dating as teenagers in 2011 and spent three years in an on and off relationship.
They initially blamed work schedules for their first split in November 2012 and they briefly reconciled in April 2013, much to fans' delight.

Conversely, Justin's mother Pattie Mallette is believed to be very on board with the reconciliation.
She lavished the Bad Liar songstress, 25, with words of praise when she spoke with People.
'If he loves her I love her,' Patti explained. 'And I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious.'
