Selena Gomez Signs With WME, Brillstein
The actress and singer, who fired her parents as managers last week, is seeking to move past her teen idol image.
Selena Gomez has found a new representation team. A week after firing her mother and stepfather as managers, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the actress and singer, who previously was with CAA, has joined WME and signed with Brillstein for management.
The rep changes signal the Disney alum's intention to move on into more adult-oriented fare in film and music. After getting her start on the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, Gomez recently starred in Harmony Korine's girls-gone-wild crime drama Spring Breakers, and as a mysterious street urchin in the action thriller Getaway, opposite Ethan Hawke.
Gomez, 21, recently completed shooting on the comedy Behaving Badly opposite Nat Wolff and Mary-Louise Parker and appeared opposite Billy Crudup in the musical dramedy Rudderless, William H. Macy's directorial debut. Her other screen credits include Hotel Transylvania and Monte Carlo.
Gomez's first solo album, Stars Dance, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last summer on the strength of triple-platinum lead single "Come & Get It." She also took home the VMA for Best Pop Video at last year's MTV Video Music Awards. She previously released three albums as part of her band, Selena Gomez & The Scene, all on Disney's Hollywood Records.
