There are a lot of iconic mother-daughter celebrity relationships out there (Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe, anyone?), but Selena Gomez and her mom Mandy Teefey's bond is on another level. To the point where Mandy was one of the inspirations behind Selena's makeup line Rare Beauty, and they even co-produced 13 Reasons Why together. Here are a handful of need-to-know facts about Mandy and her relationship with Selena—including some relatable ups and downs.

First, Let's Start with Mandy Teefey's Family Sitch

Mandy was born in Texas, and gave birth to Selena when she was just 16. She married Selena's dad, Ricardo Joel Gomez, and after their relationship ended in divorce, she married talent manager Brian Teefey. The couple welcomed their daughter Gracie in 2013, and Selena was excited to announce the big news to her fans:

Mandy Is Super Open About Her Mental Health

Mandy told The Newsette that when she was younger, mental health wasn’t discussed in her family. But she eventually spoke to a psychiatrist who helped her take care of this important part of her wellbeing:

"I felt a little out of place, always, so I started doing research, which finally led me to a psychiatrist, who diagnosed me with Bipolar II disorder… which is where you have cycles of depression mixed with more elevated moods. Highs and lows, basically… then in my 40s, I was diagnosed with adult ADHD, which again, is not something that was ever talked about in my community."

Now, Mandy says she wants "every young woman to know it’s okay to talk about mental health issues."

The Name of Mandy's Production Company Has a Cute Backstory

So, turns out Kicked to the Curb Productions was given its name for a very specific reason. Mandy and Selena kept seeing discarded couches on the curb when they first moved to L.A., and it became an inside family joke. Here, Mandy explains:

"I said, 'Selena, we should make a coffee table book for Urban Outfitters—couches on curbs!' The whole family laughed at me; it even became their inside joke—their way to make fun of me. Then we saw a piece in the LA Times about couches left on curbs. I cut it out and said, 'Look Selena! A journalist made a 3-page photo spread about couches on curbs! So everyone can laugh at me, but I still know it’s a good idea.' When I started the production company, the inside joke was, 'Everyone can laugh at me, but let’s be real. I knew this would work.' And it has!"

She Stopped Managing Selena's Career in 2014

Selena was said to have "fired" her mom and step-dad as managers with zero notice—and the Daily Mail reported that they found out about her decision in the press.

Mandy *allegedly* talked to Gossip Cop about the split, saying, "Every mother and daughter has disagreements. We never expected to manage her her whole life. We lost family time because the only time we saw her, we talked business. It was no longer fun for any of us, like it was when she was younger and we had to be with her because she was a minor."

It should be noted that Mandy low-key denied participating in this interview in a lengthy Facebook post after it went viral, only to delete said post—so who knows what really happened!

Mandy and Selena are Super Close

They don't always get along (relatable), but Selena describes her mom as being a huge influence in her life. "My mom means my happiness, my love, my best friend and the world to me," she said back in 2009. "She is the reason I smile and the reason I am here."

More recently in 2020, Mandy told The Newsette in an interview about mental health that "We went through a lot of ups and downs, but if our ups and downs can help another family, then it’s all worth it."

She Helped Inspire Rare Beauty

Selena told Harper's Bazaar Arabia that Mandy used to work for a modeling agency and do makeup, saying, “She used to do a lot of these photoshoots and work with all these models, she would do their makeup and would take me to work with her. I just loved watching her create, I loved the colors. I loved how she could make someone look completely different.”

She also noted, “My mum, personally, never wore a lot of makeup. So it was cool because I felt like I didn’t need makeup, I wanted it—and that really is a part of my brand. Being open, saying you don’t need to look perfect… enhance what you already have. We want you to be proud of who you are and know that you are special, and you are unique and that nobody in the world looks like you.”

Selena Broke Up with Justin Bieber in Part Because of Mandy

Mandy didn't approve of Selena's relationship with Justin Bieber, and apparently she was one of the reasons they split. Here's what a source told Us Weekly:

"Selena and Justin decided to take a break mainly because of Selena’s mom and her disapproval of Justin. Justin’s family loves Selena, but Selena’s family has put her in a very conflicting spot because they still don’t trust Justin. Her mom was her rock when she was having her health complications. Justin and Selena decided to take a break to give her family some more time to heal and take in the idea of her and Justin being a couple again."

Mandy Is Literally So Proud of Selena

I mean, who wouldn't be?! But as recently as July 2021, Mandy hit up Instagram to shout out her daughter, writing in part "Watching the film festivals come alive again made me nostalgic and proud of my daughter. She has worked so hard. She has pushed herself each step of her career. I was at Venice when Springbreakers got a 7 min standing ovation. Then a few years later she makes her Cannes debut. Such milestones for anyone."
