Has Selena Gomez put her relationship with Justin Bieber on hold out of respect for her mother, Mandy Teefey?
Jelena Versus Mandy Teefey
Teefey is very livid that her daughter dumped The Weeknd for another go-around with "Let Me Love You" singer. Apparently, the mother-daughter relationship started to sour when the "Love Song" singer was seen again with Bieber.
While Gomez decided not to bring Bieber as her date to Thanksgiving, Teefey is not the only one that felt uneasy with the reunion with the "What Do You Mean?" performer. Multiple family members began to doubt Bieber's new behavior.
Insiders also believe that it was Gomez's family who pressured her to call off the latest round of romance with Bieber.
"Selena and Justin decided to take a break mainly because of Selena's mom and her disapproval of Justin. Justin's family loves Selena, but Selena's family has put her in a very conflicting spot because they still don't trust Justin. Selena has tried to convince that Justin has changed...but her family just isn't budging right now," said an insider to US Weekly.
Running Back To Mom
The Hotel Transylvania franchise star was spotted in her home state of Texas over the weekend. Gomez was back home trying to rebuild her relationship with Teefey.
Many of Gomez's fans are wondering if this was a sign that Gomez is indeed ready to move on from her on-again, off-again boyfriend. However, Hollywood Life reported that the "Love You Like A Love Song" performer still has eyes on the singer but had to strengthen her relationship with her mother.
News of the relationship break and Gomez's attempt to rebuild her rapport with her mother has come at an interesting time for both pop stars. Before the announcement of their so-called "break," Bieber posted two shirtless photos of him on his Instagram page during the final hours of Thursday, March 8.
Some of the singer's 97.8 million Instagram followers ate up the images. On the other hand, others were wondering if Bieber posted the photos for Gomez.
Meanwhile, Gomez's longtime friend, Francia Raisa, came forward and graphically revealed what would happen if the "Come and Get It" singer-songwriter did not get her kidney transplant. Raisa stated that Gomez's lupus spiraled out of control and one of her kidneys malfunctioned that could have led to her death. That is when Raisa stepped in and was tested to see if she was a match for her former roommate.
Also, there are rumblings of discourse between Bieber and Gomez after the "Somebody to Love" singer's fanbase discovered that he liked a photo of YouTube sensation and model Inanna Sarkis on her Instagram page. While some Jelena fans feared the worse, reports revealed that Sarkis is a friend of Bieber's longtime friend, Johnny Shahidi.
