Washington, Feb 6: Selena Gomez had secretly entered into a rehab facility in Arizona in January to seek treatment for "emotional trauma," post her break-up with troubled star Justin Bieber, it has been revealed.
The Meadows recovery facility claims that it specialises in patients who are struggling with emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns.
Even though the Disney star's rep told Radar Online that Gomez voluntarily spent time in rehab, but not for substance abuse, a source close to the 'Come and Get It' singer said that she had been "partying very hard" and taking marijuana and prescription pills, months before her stint in rehab.
The insider said that the singer was exhausted after working in Hollywood non-stop for six years.
The source asserted that Gomez was smart enough to understand that she needed to take control of her life and it just got to a point where she needed to get away from the pressures of Hollywood, to also get away from those who had, admittedly, become a bad influence on her.
It is also worth noting that Gomez had said in a statement while announcing the cancellation of her 13-concert tour that after many years of putting her work first, she needed to spend time on herself in order to be the best person she can be. (ANI)
