Selena Gomez has been a little out of sight lately, and her appearances have been low key as well. Her personal life has been quite a puzzle, especially when it comes to her on and off boyfriend Justin Bieber. Recently, the Disney star was spotted spending time at The Meadows, which is an Arizona recovery facility that treats young people, aged 18 to 26, for “emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns”.
However, her representative insists that the rehabilitation was not for any substance abuse, but for all the “exhaustion” that she has faced lately. We wonder what could have really exhausted her so much, as she cancelled almost 13 concerts in December! A source told Radar, “It’s important to remember that Selena has 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 is Hollywood’s innocent sweetheart and is known for keeping a clean image. The fact that she had to “take control of her life” seems valid because when she called off her Australia Tour, she stated, “My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you means to me”.
Contrary to all this, sources say that the songstress has been spotted partying hard with booze and drugs, around the time she was spotted in rehab. We love this girl, and as much as we wish to give her the benefit of doubt, all evidence suggests that the girl has gone astray since her break up with Bieber. She has apparently been experimenting with drugs like Xanax and sleeping pills like Ambien. Gomez’s close friend, Demi Lovato has supposedly been helping her cope with her recent debacle.
We hope Selena is soon able to get over her addiction with the drugs and the Biebs!
