Jelena's Reunion Probably Isn't the Only Reason for Selena Gomez's Complicated Relationship With Her Mom

It's confirmed: Jelena is official back together. As fans of the singers rejoice over their reconciliation, there is one person who is not in full support: Selena Gomez' mom, Mandy Teefey. We know that Teefey no longer follows her daughter on Instagram, and there are reports of her hospitalization following an argument with Selena over the controversial romance. But it turns out that Justin Bieber isn't totally to blame for Selena's estranged relationship with her mother, as E! News reports. 

Multiple sources revealed to E! that family issues started way before the most recent Jelena reunion. "Selena has always said that the one person that means the most to her is her mom, Mandy," a source explains. "But still, they've had a really complicated relationship and have gone through a lot of ups and downs."

Reportedly, things have been rocky ever since Selena fired her mom and step dad, Brian Teefey, as managers back in 2014. "It caused a huge rift in their relationship," the source continues. "Mandy wouldn't even let Selena talk to her sister for a long time." 

The mother-daughter duo reconnected both emotionally and professionally to work on producing the Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why, earlier this year. Sel walked the red carpet to support her mom during the premiere, but it wasn't long after that their ongoing issues emerged once more. 

Mandy disapproves of Selena's relationship with Justin due to the couple's complicated history. But as Selena and her mom continue to drift apart, it seems Selena and Justin are only coming closer together.

"Selena is dealing with some family issues at the moment and Justin is there for her. He doesn't want to cause any problems between Selena and her mom... Justin and Selena are still together," another source confirms.

It looks like Jelena has a lot of trust to rebuild before the Gomez and Bieber clans can be one big happy family.
