Selena Gomez’s mother is not seeking a conservatorship for the singer, despite a number of inaccurate reports. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct these untrue claims. We’re told they’re “not true.”

According to In Touch, Gomez’s mom Mandy Teefey is “hoping for the best” for her daughter who’s in a treatment center in Tennessee, but she’s “preparing for the worst.” The tabloid quotes a so-called “family insider” as saying, “[Teefey’s] been reaching out to find what it would take to get a conservatorship for Selena.” The publication goes on to claim Teefey “would be named custodian of Selena and take control of her daughter’s finances and major decisions,” much like how Jamie Spears oversees Britney Spears’s life. “Mandy believes that a mental breakdown is possible if Selena doesn’t take this rehab stint seriously,” adds the outlet’s alleged “insider.”
