Selena Gomez has hired Katy Perry's manager.
The 21-year-old singer has recruited Bradford Cobb, who turned Katy into a superstar, to help run her schedule after she sacked her mother Mandy and step-father Brian as her managerial team last month, according to Us Magazine.
Bradford has spent more than a decade in the industry and is recognised for turning artists into pop sensations.
The 'Come & Get It' hitmaker ended her professional relationship with her parents, who have controlled her affairs since 2007, as she believes she's ''outgrown them''.
Selena has argued with her parents on many occasions in the past over the direction of her career and her on/off relationship with troubled star Justin Bieber, but it is believed family friction wasn't to blame for their split.
The 'Spring Breakers' actress still remains close with her parents, but they are annoyed about her decision.
Meanwhile, Mandy and Brian made it clear last month they were unhappy about Selena spending time with Justin, who has had a number of run-ins with the law, as they believe he's responsible for driving her to rehab in January.
A source said previously: ''They're doing their best to supervise them. They're tolerating it as long as they know that there is someone who has eyes on them all the time.''
