Selena Gomez is like the red queen in Alice in Wonderland. It’s off with their heads for another arm of her management team in a career-shaping makeover.
Gomez, 21, is asserting her authority over her career as she redirects her energies from music to acting in films.
The first to go where her parents, much to their surprise. They read about it in the media.
She fired her mom Mandy Teefey and her step-dad Brian Teefey, who have been her personal managers since her days as a Disney teen queen.
Now Selena has ordered her long-time management company, Hollywood powerhouse agency CAA to the chopping block.
CAA represents a slew of Hollywood A-listers including Jennifer Aniston, Kate Blanchett, James Cameron, George Clooney, Robert Di Niro and Cameron Diaz. Selena was repped by CAA agents Jon Cassir and Nick Styne.
Selena has thrown in instead with another Hollywood powerhouse agency, WME, also known as William Morris Endeavor. It’s run by co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesel.
WME has a client roster heavy with musical artists as well as actors. Their clients include Alicia Keys, Pearl Jam, Barry Manilow, Hugh Jackman and even Paris Hilton.
Gomez has also signed with Brillstein Entertainment Partners, which specializes in talent management and film and television production, according to deadline.com
Selena’s run on the Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverely Place,” ended in 2012. Since then her movie career has been halting.
She starred in the teen coming-of-age film “Spring Breakers,” in a risque role that required her to spend most of her time in a bikini. Her last movie “Getaway” with Ethan Hawke bombed.
Selena’s first romantic comedy film, “Behaving Badly,” has landed a distributor and release date.
She’ll appear after that in William H. Macy’s directorial debut, “Rudderless.” To stay up with the latest Selena Gomez news follow TheImproper on Twitter.
