Over the past couple of weeks the rumor mill has been buzzing about Selena Gomez‘s family and their struggle to welcome Justin Bieber back into their inner circle — especially because Sel is so close to her mom, Mandy Teefey. But, no one actually thought it was true, until now. TMZ is reporting that Selena’s mom was taken to the hospital last week when she found out how serious things are getting between Jelena. Law enforcement officials told TMZ that authorities went to check on Mandy at the request of a family member at a Los Angeles hotel. It was then that she was taken to the hospital, voluntarily, for treatment.
While it might be hard to believe, the Biebs was actually the trigger. Apparently, Mandy and Selena got into a pretty big argument earlier on in the day when the “Bad Liar” singer told her that she was currently in couples therapy with Justin. (Couples therapy?! We’re shook.) It’s being reported that Mandy flipped out because she didn’t realize that Selena and Justin were really trying to work things out long-term.
Mandy was released from the hospital the very same day and TMZ says she’s just trying to give Selena some space right now. One thing is for sure, Justin definitely won’t be spending the holidays in Texas.
Selena’s mom and her stepdad, Brian Teefey, founded Kicked to the Curb Productions, the company that produced 13 Reasons Why. Selena works as an executive producer on the show, and even secured the rights to the book by Jay Asher all the way back in 2009. 13 Reasons Why Season 2 only wrapped up days ago, which means this whole drama must have happened during filming.
