It was recently reported that her mother was upset after she rekindled her romance with pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Speaking about the Wolves hitmaker's bond with her mother, the source revealed: 'Selena has always said that the one person that means the most to her is her mom, Mandy. But still, they've had a really complicated relationship and have gone through a lot of ups and downs.'
They continued: 'It caused a huge rift in their relationship. Mandy wouldn't even let Selena talk to her sister for a long time.'
'Mandy and Selena's stepdad [Brian Teefey] really did everything they could for Selena so when she fired her it took a toll on Mandy emotionally and professionally.'.
MailOnline have contacted Selena's representatives for comment.
Despite eventually reconnecting, this report came shortly after the Bad Liar songstress and her former manager a 'heated conversation' over on/off beau Justin Bieber, which led to a voluntary 'welfare' check-up.

According to TMZ, Selena's family will 'never forgive him or accept [Justin]' for their complicated split in 2014.
A source told the website that Mandy was taken to a welfare centre in Los Angeles for a health check 'at a family member's request'.
Following his split from Sofia Richie and her separation from The Weeknd, the pair began to meet up again in November.

Justin and Selena started dating as teenagers in 2011 and spent three years in an on and off relationship.
They initially blamed work schedules for their first split in November 2012 and they briefly reconciled in April 2013, much to fans' delight.
But things turned more sinister when Justin admitted that trust was the issue in his on-again/off-again relationship with Selena.

Conversely, Justin's mother Pattie Mallette is believed to be very on board with the reconciliation.
She lavished the Bad Liar songstress, 25, with words of praise when she spoke with People last weekend.
'If he loves her I love her,' Patti explained. 'And I’ve met her and we have a special bond so I think she’s precious.'
