The pair “really hit it off” at Paris Fashion Week. Selena fired her mother, Mandy Teefey, as manager back in April and sources say Kris has become that maternal figure. “She’s really stepped into Selena’s departing mom’s shoes and is mentoring like she was her own daughter,” reveals a source.
An OK! Magazine insider claims Kris sent Selena on a “grueling boot camp,” allowing Kris to control Selena’s entire health and fitness routine. “Kris wants Selena to harden up her body and get a Kate Hudson six-pack and has signed her up for Barry’s Bootcamp, which Kim [Kardashian] does regularly,” says the source. “She’s giving her tips and advice on everything from surgery to body hair and Selena’s completely in awe.”
The source admits, “[Kris] thinks Selena’s got a huge amount of talent and plans on making a ton of money out of managing her.”
Star Magazine sources add, “Mandy understands Selena’s decision to upgrade her management. But she worries about Kris turning Selena into a trashy Kardashian.” Also, “On the rare occasion when Mandy does talk to her daughter, it’s ‘Kris says this’ and ‘Kris thinks that’ — Selena is completely under her spell. Kris is giving her advice on where to be seen, what to wear and what to share online and Selena is lapping it up.”
Selena is impressionable because she’s “sick of being known as Justin [Bieber’s] girlfriend… [she’s] all too willing to undergo an image overhaul, even if it means losing her family in the process.”
Incidentally, Khloe Kardashian admitted that some of her earliest memories include overhearing Kris telling a family friend that Khloe, then only about seven years old, needed a nose job. Khloe also told Cosmo years ago that Kris called her fat and pressured her to lose weight.
