Selena Gomez Rehab Stint Confirmed; Justin Bieber to Blame?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Many believe that Justin Bieber is in need of rehab, but a new report alleges that his ex-girlfriend actually beat him to the professional assistance punch.

According to numerous sources, Selena Gomez did not cancel the Australian leg of her tour in December because she simply needed a break from performing.

The 21-year-old did so because she checked into an Arizona rehab center for an emergency two-week stay (she has since left the facility).

Has the good girl gone bad?!

A source claims that Gomez walked into Dawn at The Meadows - a facility that specializes in young adults struggling with trauma or addiction - on January 5.

The reason? She had been "partying very hard" in the weeks prior.

Aside from staying out late, allegedly Gomez was into marijuana and prescription pills, with friends and family members "increasingly worried that there might be a serious problem."

“It’s important to remember that Selena had worked in Hollywood non-stop for six years,” an insider tells Radar Online, adding, “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."

In other words... Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez Text #1
One of five text message screen caps allegedly sent from Justin Bieber to Selena Gomez. It's pretty interesting if true.

A mole says that Bieber and Gomez would "smoke marijuana regularly" and that Gomez was left "broken-hearted" by her split from her fellow star.

That's why “Selena needed to take the opportunity to work on herself. She realized she needed help.”

UPDATE: Selena's decision was largely based on "that crazy boy" (Bieber), according to TMZ, which claims Selena blames a lot of her problems on him.

Specifically, the excesses she was exposed to by being around Bieber and pals.

Sources close to Gomez say her handlers went ballistic when they found out she was hanging out again with Justin, and that she checked into rehab immediately after that.

Wonder if his penchant for strippers had anything to do with it ...

UPDATE: The rehab stint was very real. "Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse," a rep for the singer confirms to People.

I'm not a fan of Selena, but if this is real I feel bad for her. Poor girl. Hope she gets it together.

I only read this article because it involved Beiber. No one is interested in the woman that used to play on "Wizards" When the show ended she would have disappeared. Her managers knew that. She needed Justin to stay in the news. Publicity", She wasn't interested in that kid.They used him and they're still using him. This article about Gomez wouldn't even exist if she hadn't dated him. She's been Hollywood all her life, she bounced that kid like a ball.

We'll there seems to be a mini war going on. Selena's people are blaming her for Biebers problems and Biebers people are blaming her. It's getting to popcorn time.

To all Selena's fans who were saying Bieber was the one with all the issues and he was the one that was bad for her and not the other way round: ha!

At least she wants to get help.

How does Selena even have a career in Hollywood? She can't sing. She can't act. And she can't dance.

Selena and Justin Bieber are both very young stars who rose to the top quickly and need to be surrounded by the right people. In music and show biz drugs and alcohol are all around. They must be strong and resist the temptations and influences. The proper manager, and the right friends are most important.
