Teefey said flat-out that she’s “not happy” about the Jelena reunion.
Teefey also said that she hasn’t spoken with Bieber “in years” — not even when Selena went through her kidney transplant this summer.
Still, Teefey was careful to stress that she respects her daughter’s choices.

“Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe, and healthy.”
In the past few weeks, there have been rumors about a rift between Gomez and her mother. A source told People that the two are no longer speaking.
In the wake of those rumors, Gomez put a cryptic messageon her Instagram, and changed her profile pic to an old photo of her mom.

“Every mother and daughter has disagreements,” Teefey told Gossip Cop, when asked if their relationship has worsened since she stopped managing her daughter in 2014.
Gossip Cop also asked Teefey if she worried about her daughter’s health now that she’s hanging out with Bieber again.
