Justin Bieber seems to have gotten himself caught in the middle of a family fight.
The “Sorry” singer was spotted out in Los Angeles without Selena Gomez Tuesday night amid news that his on-and-off girlfriend had an argument with her mom, Mandy Teefey, over their recent reconciliation. Looking a little tired while posing for photos, the 23-year-old told paparazzi he was by himself and “going to the spa” for some alone time.
As previously reported, Selena’s mother was taken to the hospital last week when the police did a welfare check on 41-year-old matriarch. After officers spoke to her at the request of an unknown family member, Mandy was voluntarily transported to a local medical facility for treatment.
Though initially reports claimed the 13 Reasons Why producer was admitted after suffering a breakdown over her daughter’s on-again romance with the Canadian crooner, a source recently revealed to People that Mandy sought help because “it’s been a stressful time.”
“This wasn’t just about Justin,” the insider explained. “It’s true her family doesn’t approve of Justin, but this wasn’t just over a fight about him.”
While it’s unclear if Mandy and Selena, 25, are on good terms at the moment, internet sleuths — aka Jelena fans — were quick to notice that the mother-daughter duo have seemingly stopped following each other on Instagram. Just hours after word of Mandy’s hospitalization got out, the mom-of-two no longer showed up on her firstborn’s list of followers.
As Cosmopolitan noted, Selena did not like her mother’s recent Instagram post about her children, which also paid tribute to the third child she had miscarried in 2011.
