Selena Gomez Cancels Concerts After Mom's Miscarriage

Selena Gomez's mother, Mandy Teefey, has reportedly miscarried, forcing the young star to cancel two concerts to be by her mother's side, according to a report.

E! Online is reporting that the starlet was set to perform in Chicago last Saturday and in Seattle on Sunday. A source close to the Gomez family tells the entertainment site that Gomez was in the audience of Power 106's Cali Christmas 2011 concert in Los Angeles when she learned of her mother's news. It is believed she left the show and headed home.

Gomez's rep reportedly confirmed that the star cancelled because of a "family emergency."
