Selena Gomez Attended Rehab in Secret
RadarOnline recently revealed the Selena Gomez attended rehab for two weeks, starting on January 5. While the pop star slipped under the radar, she’s said to have checked into Dawn at the Meadows, a treatment facility for emotional trauma, addiction, or a combination of both. A rep has since confirmed that the “Come & Get It” singer attended, but not for addiction.
Sources have since come forward to the gossip website, with one saying: “Her friends and family became increasingly worried that there might be a serious problem with Selena.”
Another claims Gomez’s breakup with Justin Bieber and hard-partying lifestyle, which she also seemed to keep a secret, influenced her to go: “The partying was, at times, wild. They wanted to help her — and they very much encouraged her to go to rehab. Others very close to her also urged her to seek professional help.”
But while some sources say Gomez’s hanging out with Bieber’s crew resulting in marijuana and prescription drug uses, others say she checked in for exhaustion: “It’s important to remember that Selena had worked in Hollywood non-stop for six years. She was exhausted. Selena was smart enough to understand that she needed to take control of her life.
“It just got to a point where she needed to get out of Los Angeles, get away from ‘the scene’ and the pressures of Hollywood, to also get away from those who had, admittedly, become a bad influence on her. Selena needed to take the opportunity to work on herself. She realized she needed help.”
Gomez has been fairly busy these days. While her early career involved a stint on Barney & Friends, she became well-known for her role on the Wizards of Waverly Place and later put out a couple of modestly- successful music releases through Selena Gomez and The Scene.
This past year saw a more mature turn for her, with her first “grownup” acting role in Spring Breakers and then her debut solo album Stars Dance, which turned into a No. 1 release on the Billboard 200 and spawned a successful single. Gomez has since been touring in support.
