Props to Selena Gomez‘s mom. After the Disney star was hospitalized for complications from malnutrition and exhaustion, her mother, Mandy Teefey, is putting her foot down and cutting back on Selena’s grueling schedule.
Selena has said that even though she’s 18, her mom still calls the shots. The night she was hospitalized, she told Jay Leno that she had introduced her mom to boyfriend Justin Bieber. “He passed the test,” she said.
“Selena’s mom is amazing,” a friend of the family tells PopEater.
“She doesn’t want to be in the spotlight herself like so many other
celebrity parents. Instead, she just wants to make sure that her
daughter remains normal while living such an extraordinary life.”
Right now, trimming down Selena’s schedule is her best bet at making sure her daughter stays grounded. Selena is currently promoting her upcoming movie “Monte Carlo,” with Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy, and she’s also just released a great new single, “Bang Bang Bang.”
