Selena Gomez Team Defends Rehab Trip: She's Just Tired, Alright?!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Selena Gomez's camp says she doesn't have serious issues with addiction and/or Justin Bieber, and that her rehab trip was mostly due to being "burned out."

The star alarmed fans and surprised many in the gossip-reading public when she announced she was cancelling the Australian and Asian legs of her tour.

Selena said in a statement in December:

"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."

It was later revealed that Selena Gomez went to rehab at the Dawn at The Meadows recovery center in Arizona on January 5, only to bail after two weeks.

Rumors have been flying that she's hung up on her relationship with Justin Bieber, and had been partying hard using alcohol, weed and prescription drugs.

Bieber's people deny blame, saying she's a party girl who makes her own decisions and has only herself to blame for them. Her camp tells a different story.

Gomez's team isn't pointing any fingers at Bieber, but sticking to the company line that a grueling schedule of concerts, tours and movies wore her down.

"Project wellness," says a Gomez source. "She was burnt out after a relentless year of back-to-back films, concerts, TV, touring and all the promotional work.

"She just needed a break."

Regarding reports that Selena was using multiple drugs before her spell in rehab, the insider disputed this, insisting the singer is not that type of girl:

''She's not that girl. Does she party and have the occasional joint? Yes. Does she drink when she goes out? Yes. But she's not struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism."

This would be consistent, at least, with Gomez's reason for bailing on her six-week program after two, seeing no reason to go back for more treatment.

"I've never seen her out of control," the insider added.

This dude, on the other hand ...

People are giving her problems for going to rehab and saying she went for addiction. OK addiction is one of the Dawn at the Meadows specialty but it's not the only one. Another one is EMOTIONAL TRAUMA! And it's for people between 18-26. After the past year she's had with Bieber I'm not surprised and proud of her for getting help. They say she's tired and people are giving her more problems saying "take a nap" but there is a difference between "tired" and "exhausted" tired just sounds less dramatic. Just leave her alone people!

Honestly, all these rumours are basically all lies. "Bieber's people" "Selena's team". Like seriously, we should just leave them alone. They both have had a rough time and at least Selena entered rehab and she realised whatever she was doing was wrong or she wasn't being herself. She did the mature thing to do. She never blamed Bieber, and everyone's going into a frenzy. Plus, we have no proof she had/has alcohol or drug addiction so I think people should stop and let her have some time to herself. Plus, she entered a month ago and she seems like she's coping well.

If Selena said she is tired than she is tired. She's been touring. If you've been touring wouldn't you be tired to.

Oh yeah. She's JUST tired. She merely went to REHAB because she's "tired". Ya know, because she can't like... rest... have a nap... in the comfort of her own home. No no no. She needs to go to REHAB to SLEEP. Don't be naive. People don't go to rehab because they're tired. and they don't go to rehab to get over their boyfriends either.

You are such a fucking dumb ass people shouldn't date for the sake of others. They should date because they feel a connection with each other. If you really cared about Justin and Selena then you would want what is is best for THEM and not your own selfish ass. Saying that they should be together for the sake of the fans who think they look "cute" together shows how immature you are. Reality is gonna hit you hard one day and its gonna knock you on your ass.
