Selena’s mother and father are convinced that she needs a major break — and hopefully a permanent one — from bad boy Justin and his negative influence. Sel’s worried parents want her to go to rehab because it will keep her away from the Biebs and give her some ‘much-needed rest and clarity,’ an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
She tried it once before, but perhaps a second stint in rehab will help heal Selena Gomez. The “Come & Get It” singer’s parents, Mandy and Brian Teefey, are eager to get their troubled daughter into a rehabilitation center to treat her “depression and anxiety,” and get her as far way as possible from Justin Bieber, a source reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Selena Gomez’s Parents: Rehab & Staying Away From Justin Bieber Are Needed
Selena’s parents have not been big fans of Justin ever since he started behaving recklessly, and they believe that their daughter would be much happier and healthier without him in her life, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“They have always wanted her to take rehab seriously because she never has, and that would be the best thing for her. Her parents have been weak trying to make it happen, but are now trying to buckle down on it, even using her little sister to motivate her,” the source reveals. “Her parents have begun using the fact that Selena will not be able to see her sister until she gets help and that seems to be working.”
However, another insider tells us that one of the main reasons Selena’s parents want her in rehab is to get Justin out of her life once and for all.
“Selena’s main issues are depression and anxiety and obviously when she drinks alcohol, it only amplifies the problem. She also has trouble sleeping, which makes everything worse. Her family, especially her mom, attributes many of her troubles to hanging out with the ‘wrong crowd’, Justin included,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Selena really wants to get better but isn’t sure what to do. Rehab is not something she thinks she needs. She thinks if she can just focus on her career and stay away from certain people, things will get better.”
But there’s one person who Selena is not willing to give up.
“She is not ready to let go of Justin though and he’s a main culprit in this whole mess. Her mom thinks rehab is the ticket because it will force her to stay away from Justin and get some much-needed rest and clarity,” the source explains.
To make matters worse, Selena suffers from lupus and emotional stress can make her condition worse. At the beginning of the year, Selena canceled part of her Stars Dance tour, explaining to her disappointed fans that she had to put her health first.
“This is a very serious situation because all the stress has an impact on Selena’s health and aggravates the lupus and causes flare-ups. It’s no joke,” the source says.
We certainly hope that Selena gets the help she needs.
Selena Unfollows Friends On Instagram
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Selena abruptly stopped following all of her friends on Instagram in late April. The singer also deleted all of the photos she posted of herself and her former BFFs Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner at Coachella.
Selena also stopped following her pal Austin Mahone, who is “mad” and doesn’t understand why she would do such a thing.
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers, does Selena need a major break from Justin and her fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle? Do YOU think she needs to go to rehab? Let us know!
