When we think about celebrities, we tend to focus on their achievements, their wealth, and their fame. If we think about the other people in their life, it’s usually their significant other or perhaps their famous best friends. However, celebrities all have two parents just like the rest of us, and it’s actually incredibly interesting to see where our favorite stars came from! All these celebs have hit the jackpot when it comes to the gene pool, but some are the spitting image of their parents while some of the others share no resemblance at all. Genetics are pretty incredible!
Selena Gomez hasn’t had the easiest relationship with her parents, and being in the spotlight has probably made it much worse than it would have been otherwise! She was born when her mother Mandy was 16 years old, and her parents divorced only five years later. Her father was never a big part of her life, but her mother became her manager. In 2014, Selena made headlines when she ‘blindsided’ Mandy by firing her as her manager and hiring an official company instead. She didn’t handle it in the best way, but you can’t blame her for wanting some freedom and independence!
