The mom-daughter pair's relationship became rocky after the Wolves singer's reunion with Justin shortly after undergoing a kidney transplant and recuperating from complications last summer.
Before the reunion, Selena had parted ways from The Weeknd in October 2017 after 10 months of dating. At the time, a source said that Selena didn’t think her mom in particular “would approve” her boyfriend.
As previously reported, Maddy got so worked up after she found that her daughter was back together with Justin. The 41-year-old mom even had to be taken to a hospital. Maddy was released from the hospital on the same day.
Justin and Selena had been in an on-off relationship from 2011 to 2014 before the duo's latest reunion.
