Selena Gomez dropped a bomb on her fans: She secretly entered rehab in January, though not due to drug abuse.
“Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse,” a representative for the former “Wizards of Waverly Place” star confirms to Us Weekly. After entering on Jan. 5, she remained there for two weeks.
So what was the cause? Sources for Us say she did it to “get herself together,” though they didn’t elaborate. That makes sense because she also canceled her tour dates in Australia, saying she needed some time off.
The reason she needed to get herself together, though, could be because of her on-again, off-again fling, Justin Bieber. He posted a picture of them hanging out on Jan. 3, only two days before Radar Online reports she entered Dawn at the Meadows recovery facility in Wickenburg, Ariz.
Bieber has had a troublesome few weeks (or past year, really) of his own, when he was arrested on Jan. 23 for drag racing and an alleged DUI. Days later, his flight to the Super Bowl was detained over a marijuana smell.
Whether Gomez went to rehab because of Bieber or because of other personal issues, she seems to be better after her time away. She posted a picture to Instagram showing herself back in the recording studio, with the caption, “Therapy.”
