Selena Gomez's Family Is Doing An Amazing Thing To Honor Christina Grimmie


Selena Gomez's stepfather, Brian Teefy, has raised over $100,00 to support the family of Christina Grimmie, who was shot and killed on Friday night.

Teefey — who is married to Selena's mother, Amanda Teefey — was Christina's manager. On a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the Grimmie family, Teefey wrote a heartfelt message to his former friend and client, whom he called "a second daughter."

He wrote,

Teefey had worked with Grimmie since she was 14 years old.

Selena Gomez, who is only one year older than Grimmie, had known the late singer most of her life.

Gomez expressed her grief at the senseless killing during her concert in Miami on Saturday. She said to the crowd, fighting back tears,


Grimmie was shot and killed while signing autographs after her concert in Orlando on Friday night. The killer, who has been identified by police as 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl, shot and killed himself after shooting Grimmie.

The attack came just a day before the shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub, the largest mass shooting in US history.
