Selena Gomez's Mum Mandy Teefey Criticises Daughter's Choice Over Woody Allen Film

Mandy admitted over the weekend that she is "not happy" about the reunion, and although she didn't go into detail about where she and Selena stand, she made it clear that there's some issues there.

A day after Teefey revealed she was "not happy" about her daughter's rekindled romance with Justin Bieber, she weighed in on the ongoing controversy over Gomez starring in the upcoming Woody Allen film "A Rainy Day in NY".

"Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy", said Teefey. I had a long talk with her about not working with him, and it did not click.

"Her team are unbelievable people", she wrote. I do not control her the way it has been portrayed. She makes all her own decisions. "No matter how hard you try to advise, it falls on deaf ears". "It falls on deaf ears", Mandy commented.

Today Selena's co-star Timothée Chalamet, 22, announced that he will not profit from working with the director and will donate his fee to three charities; TIME'S UP, The LGBT Center in NY, and RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network).


In late November, Billboard asked Gomez if Allen's history - he was accused of sexual assault in 1993 by adopted daughter Dylan Farrow - was a consideration when Gomez took the role.

Selena's fans were not pleased with Mandy's comments that they believe threw her "under the bus", writing things like, "Hey, Mandy you should be ashamed of yourself!" On Monday, Teefy responded to a fan on Twitter who suggested she should make Gomez apologize for starring in Allen's movie.

Woody's daughter Dylan Farrow alleges that the director, now 82, molested her as a child.

"I'm 25. I'm not 18, or 19, or 20", she said. "[The Harvey Weinstein allegations] actually happened right after I had started [on the movie]".

Allen has always denied the allegations that were investigated by sex-abuse experts. That's something, yes, I had to face and discuss. "I stepped back and thought, 'Wow, the universe works in interesting ways'". A prosecutor in CT, where the assault allegedly occurred, said he had "probable cause" to prosecute, but declined to press charges in order to spare Farrow, now 32, the trauma of a trial, reports say.
