Selena Gomez’s relationship with her mom continues to publicly unravel.
Selena Gomez’s mom, Mandy Teefey, says it was entirely her daughter’s decision to work with Woody Allen despite a stern warning.
Selena’s relationship with her mother is strained, and it’s going down in flames right before our very eyes.
Teefey responded to a fan’s request that Selena pen an apology letter for working with the defamed director. In 1993, Allen was accused of sexually abusing his then-seven-year-old adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow.
“No one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click,” Teefey wrote. “Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.”

Last year, Billboard asked Gomez about the allegations against Allen, but the singer responded that she was “not sure” how to answer.
Gomez and Teefey’s relationship has been been full of ups and downs since the pop star’s reunion with Justin Bieber. Late last year, TMZ reported their rekindling upset Teefey so much she was admitted to a hospital for evaluation.
Teefey has gone on the record to admit she’s “not happy” that Selena and JB are back together. “Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy,” Mandy explained. “Every mother and daughter has disagreements. She is 25 years old and knows what is at stake with her health. I do not control her the way it has been portrayed. Selena is an adult and can make her own choices.”
I think it’s extremely sad that Teefey is exposing her daughter publicly like this, but I also assume she feels desperate to try and get some sense through to Selena – even if it’s out in the open.
