Selena Gomez Signs With WME, Brillstein
The actress and singer, who released her parents as managers last month, is seeking to move past her teen idol image.
Selena Gomez has found a new representation team. After she relieved her mother and stepfather of their managerial duties in early March, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the actress and singer, who previously was with CAA, has signed with WME and Brillstein for management.
The rep changes are a crucial piece of the Disney alum's strategy, long in the works, to move on to 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 previously released three albums as part of her band, Selena Gomez & The Scene, all on Disney's Hollywood Records.
