Selena Gomez abandoned rehab just two weeks into a six-week program, according to a new report, failing to complete the course of treatment she checked in for.

The 21-year-old ignored the advice of medical professionals and the strenuous objections of the rehab staff and walked out of there just 14 days in.

In early January, Selena Gomez checked into rehab at The Meadows for what is believed to be problems with alcohol, pot and prescription Ambien.

All of which can be traced back to her unhealthy relationship Justin Bieber, both in terms of her strained emotions and her exposure to his lifestyle.

We only recently learned she sought treatment, though, and that’s largely due to the fact that Selena bailed so she could go the Sundance Film Festival.

She was only in treatment for two weeks, and reportedly told her people she would return to the rehab facility after Sundance, only she didn’t do so.


Gomez decided she was cured, apparently, and felt there was no reason to return. The Meadows doesn’t see eye-to-eye with her on that, though.

The treatment program is 45 days for a reason, and with Selena having left four weeks early, they don’t believe she has completed the therapy or recovered.

Selena feels she completed the toughest week, the initial period which the facility calls "Survivor’s week" so everything is fine … the staff disagrees.

The Meadows, a facility that specializes in young adults struggling with trauma or addiction, may have a point, as she was "partying very hard" beforehand.

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

It just got to a point where she had to get away from the pressure of her career and those "who had become a bad influence on her," an insider said.


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

Sources close to Gomez say her camp went ballistic when they found out she was back together with Justin, and that she checked into rehab after that.

The two reportedly got into a text message war (below) last month involving his wild ways, and his camp reportedly warned Justin to stay away from her.

Whomever or whatever is to blame for the struggles these two young stars are having, clearly they’re not the best influences on each other at the moment …
