Selena Gomez's mom, Mandy Teefey, publicly shamed the star on Instagram on Tuesday for appearing in an upcoming Woody Allen film, saying she advised her daughter against it.

Teefey, who fans have speculated is currently on the outs with Gomez, made the comments after fans began to clamor for Gomez to speak out against Allen, who has been accused by his daughter Dylan Farrow of molestation for decades.

Gomez is set to star in Allen's upcoming film, A Rainy Day in New York alongside Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Jude Law. Chalamet said on Monday night he will donate his fee from the film in light of the allegations.

“I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities: TIME’S UP, the LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN,” he wrote on Instagram. “I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”

After Teefey posted a photo on Instagram on Monday, fans began commenting on the photo telling her to ask Gomez to speak out as well. Teefey responded to one of them, saying she had told her daughter it was a bad idea.

She wrote:

Sorry, No one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click. Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.

Of course, fans lost it. Journalist Joshua Fox tweeted the exchange, writing Teefey "threw her under the bus."

Teefey's comments come as fans have been speculating that mom and daughter are on the outs. Teefey also recently threw shade at her daughter over her rumored reconciliation with her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

Teefey told Gossip Cop she is "not happy" about the reunion.

“Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy,” she said.

Mom and daughter also recently unfollowed each other on Instagram, though Gomez just changed her profile picture to a photo of her mother.

Reps for Gomez and Teefey did not return a request for comment from BuzzFeed News.
