Earlier this year, Justin Bieber's love fired her mother and stepfather, who had been managing the young star's career since her days on The Wizard's of Waverly Place. After Selena turned 21 the actress reportedly stated she wanted to take her career "in a new direction," so she kicked her parents to the curb.
That must make family dinners slightly awkward...
