The past couple of months have been stressful for Selena Gomez and her mom, Mandy Teefey.Instagram
According to TMZ, Teefey has gone to the hospital for stress. TMZ learned from law enforcement sources that a family member had requested officers do a welfare check on the mom, at which point she was voluntarily transferred to a hospital for treatment.
Many are speculating that the stress stems from Gomez rekindling her on-again, off-again relationship with singer Bieber, whom she dated from 2010 to 2015.kicked2thecurbproductions/Instagram
According to TMZ, Teefey didn’t solely admit herself into the hospital because of Bieber, but the relationship has contributed to the stressful time in which the mom of two has found herself.
A source explained to People:
“It’s been a stressful time for Mandy and she made the decision herself to go to the hospital and make sure everything was okay. This wasn’t just about Justin. It’s true her family doesn’t approve of Justin, but this wasn’t just over a fight about him.”
Gomez and Teefey have always showcased a close mother-daughter bond, with Gomez often calling her mom her best friend. The pair even worked together on the hit Netflix show “13 Reasons Why.”
But as the source suggests, the usually happy mother-daughter duo just aren’t seeing eye to eye right now.selenagomez/Instagram
Another source close to Bieber told People that the pop star is aware that Gomez’s family doesn’t like him and that it kills him that their relationship may be hurting the one she has with her mom:
“Justin knows Selena’s family is not happy about her dating him. He has known for a long time. But he is adamant that he has changed and is a better boyfriend now. He will keep trying to prove himself to her family. He is sad that her mom is not doing well. Selena is very close with her mom, so it’s stressful for her. He wants Selena to be happy.”
The source continued:
“Justin’s family always loved Selena, but Selena’s family is still not happy about her seeing Justin. Selena doesn’t bring Justin to any family events. Selena is spending Christmas with her family. As of now, Justin is not invited.”
Gomez and Bieber’s five-year relationship was a bit of a dramatic one. The actress even admitted on Instagram that Bieber cheated on her multiple times.
Neither Gomez nor Teefey have commented on these matters directly. Teefey was released from the hospital the same day.
