Fresh Start: Selena
Gomez Hires Katy
Perry’s Manager After
Getting Rid of “Toxic”
Selena Gomez is really trying to change her inner circle – now that her main focus has become her music career.
Earlier this month, it was reported the 21-year-old singer fired her longtime managers—her mom and stepdad, Mandy and Brian Teefey.
Now a report claims she has hired a new manager to replace them—Bradford Cobb.
Cobb was listed as one of Billboard’s 40 Executives Under 40, but what’s even better is he also manages Katy Perry and Adam Lambert.
News of this comes days after TMZ reported Gomez wants to cut the “biggest sources of negativity,” which included her former BFFs Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Selena Gomez may not be grabbing lunch with Kendall Jenner anymore.
Sources tell TMZ Selena considered them “nothing but a toxic distraction,” and made her message clear by unfollowing them – and all of the other people she has been following – on Instagram.
It seems like after completing a short stint in rehab in January – claiming stress-related issues were to blame – she’s now looking for drama-free best friends and independence from her parents.
“Before she fired [her parents], they told Selena to stop drinking and seeing Justin [Bieber]. When she refused, they kicked her out of their home,” a source tells In Touch.
This is why Gomez has purchased her own $3 million pad in Calabasas last month.
On Saturday night, Selena won big at the Radio Disney Music Awards held in LA. She took home Song of the Year (“Come & Get It”), Best Song to Dance to ("Birthday”) and Most Talked About Artist.
Us Weekly was the first outlet to report Selena's manager news.
