(Newser) – Selena Gomez is going through a breakup, but this one isn't with celebrity beau Justin Bieber. Instead, the 21-year-old singer is parting ways with her mom-ager and dad-ager and is now seeking new management. TMZ broke the story, reporting the split from mom Mandy and step-dad Brian Teefey, who've filled the manager role since Gomez's days on the Disney Channel, came last month. Apparently, Gomez feels she has outgrown her parents' influence and is ready for an A-list manager. Just how dramatic was it—and was Bieber to blame?

It IS a SMART MOVE! Now they can go to having a normal parent/ adult child relationship! It shows that Selena is a smart young lady.

Probably a smart move. Her parents should now get a life (of their own).
