Did Selena Go To Rehab Over Justin Bieber’s Partying?

“She needed to get out of LA,” a source close to the singer told us exclusively. “It’s a continuous thing working on yourself, growing up, it’s on going. She was working through young adult issues.” Additionally, her on-again off-again relationship with Justin hasn’t helped at all.

“[She entered rehab for] various reasons — young adult issues, working too much, relationship issues,” the source added. “Pressures of being with Justin and the people surrounding him. Clearly, look at what they’re into!”
“She is continuously working on herself and wants to be a healthy and happy adult and out of that relationship!” the source added, which makes sense since that’s why Selena canceled her Australian leg of her Come & Get It tour in December — to focus on herself.
“It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be,” Selena said in a statement after canceling her tour.

Selena’s Parents Urged Her To Get Help After Wild Partying

Her parents reportedly wanted to get her “cleaned up” because they felt she might have a serious problem with partying.

“Particularly, her parents [were worried],” a source tells “The partying was, at times, wild. They wanted to help her, and they very much encouraged her to go to rehab. Others very close to her also urged her to seek professional help.”

The source goes on to say that Selena was “exhausted” and she realized 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,” the source adds. “To also get away from those who had, admittedly, become a bad influence on her.”

This could be why Selena canceled her Australian tour, as she said she wanted “to spend time on herself.”

Fortunately, Selena is reportedly “happy and very healthy” following her treatment. Selena’s good pal Demi Lovato also famously entered rehab in 2010. This might be why she and Selena have been spending so much time together lately; Demi may have urged her to spend some time in rehab! Our source confirmed that was “very supportive” of her through every step of the way. We wonder what Justin Bieber thinks about all of this, given his recent run-ins with the law and his own alleged drug use. has reached out to Selena’s rep for further comment. — Chloe Melas
