Selena Gomez has parted ways with her backing band The Scene so she can concentrate on her acting career.
The Disney star released three albums with the band and they recently wrapped up a South American tour together.
Gomez insists they have gone their separate ways on amicable terms as she wants the musicians to work with other artists while she concentrates on movies.
In a post on her Facebook.com page, Gomez writes, "My band and I are going our separate ways for a while. This year is all about films and acting and I want my band to play music wherever with whoever. We will be back but, it will be a good while. I love them and I love you guys.
"I can't express enough how grateful I am for this group. They have been with me since day one and I can't believe it's actually over. I love you The Scene, marsh mellow girls, Ashley + Ashlee, Jivanta, Marco, Brian + Brian, mark, Jason, Javier, Timmy! Could NOT have done any of this without you. Currently bawling my eyes out. I'll miss you guys."
