Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have reportedly split up once again, and the reason is Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey!
Gomez, 25, and Teefey, 41, share a rather troubled mother-daughter relationship, but it now looked like Mandy’s opinion in Selena’s love life matters to the young starlet. Teefey, who gave birth to Selena when she was just 16, has been quite vocal about her dislike for Bieber and his recently rekindled romance with her daughter.
It was previously reported that the two are on a break.
An insider told Us Weekly that they have “decided to take break mainly because of Selena’s mom and her disapproval of Justin. Justin’s family loves Selena, but Selena’s family has put her in a very conflicting spot because they still don’t trust Justin.”
Like all moms, Mandy just wants what’s best for her little girl. She reportedly said, “Selena can live her life however she wants, as long as she is happy, safe and healthy.” Clearly Mandy doesn’t think her relationship with Justin Bieber is healthy for Selena, hence the disapproval.
Selena and Justin have been on-again off-again since 2010. Their relationship has always been rocky but they say they understand each other more than anyone else. They most recently got back together after Selena split up with The Weeknd.
This comes as a surprise, since the couple seemed to be doing okay until a couple of weeks ago. Selena Gomez shared a post on her Instagram on March 1st, for Justin’s birthday. Although she didn’t mention who the “someone” she was referring to is, it was fairly obvious and fans went crazy at the public display of affection.
In September 2011, Justin admitted that even though he was still young, he would one day like to get married to Selena and start a family with her. Sources say that the two are still in it for the long haul and are merely on a break because her family “won’t budge”.
When Jelena split up in November 2012, they blamed it on their tiresome and mismatched work schedules. Who knew that the reason this time would be something completely different – Mandy we’re looking at you!
Taylor Swift, resident BFF, also disapproves of Biebs! In 2013, when Selena and Justin greeted at each other at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, she couldn’t hide her real feels.
Clearly, Selena and Justin’s relationship has more highs and low’s than Six Flag’s Magic Mountain. They seem to be on a break but given by their past record, they could get back together any day now.
Except, this time, they need to secure Mandy’s approval to have a future together.
