Family dinners are about to get a lot more awkward around Selena Gomez's house after the pop star fired her parents as her managers.

The former Wizards of Waverly Place star is reportedly seeking someone more experienced in the biz to help take her through the next grown-up steps in her career.

"Selena feels she's outgrown her parents," a source told TMZ.

Gomez's mother and stepfather guided her through her Disney days, but now the star is making all kinds of adult decisions, including getting back together with bad boy Justin Bieber — another move her parents are "vehemently opposed" to, according to the source.

The singer is reportedly eyeing Katy Perry's manager Bradford Cobb as a replacement, but it wouldn't be surprising if Bieber's right-hand man Scooter Braun was also in the running for the job.

The couple has recently been spotted in Miami together, where the Biebs is hitting the studio to make some new music, and rumor has it they may even be working on something together — even a tour.

"The duo hope[s] that hitting the road will repair their battered images," a source told Star magazine.

"Ticket sales would be through the roof, and they desperately need the positive publicity after Justin's bad-boy behavior and Selena's stint in rehab."

Could this be the catalyst behind the parental dumping?
