Rumors had it a few weeks ago that Selena had went to rehab.  After the rumors were dismissed as something that had been made up, there was nothing ever brought up about it again.  That was until today.  A rep for the I Love You Like a Love Song singer admitted that she voluntarily checked into the Meadows Recovery Center in Arizona during the first two weeks of January.  Come to think of it her Instagram and Twitter updates were definitely  M.I.A from around 7 – 19 January.

Was she there for drugs or alcohol?  Nope.  Apparently, she says that she had some personal issues that needed to be worked through.  We can’t help but wonder if these issues are in one way or another related to her ex boyfriend, Justin Bieber given it was just after the time this photo was posted on Instagram and they were seen segwaying through Calabasas.

It was just in December that Gomez canceled her tour, so it makes perfect sense that something was going on with her.  We didn’t know that it was anything serious enough for rehab, but Gomez has stated before “It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.”

Sources close to the starlet say she was experimenting heavy with prescription pills and marijuana before going to rehab.  We don’t have any proof of this, so as for now, her drug problems are merely a rumor.

Back to the whole Bieber thing, there are people who believe that Selena’s choice to seek rehab was directly related to the things that she saw while being with Justin and his entourage.  It makes sense Justin may have had something to do with her need for rehab being that they were seen together just days before she checked into the recovery center.  It was even believed that the two might be repairing their relationship, but apparently that went down the drain being that while Selena was gone, Bieber managed to get a DUI while being with another girl, Chantel Jeffries.

We hate that Selena got to a point where she needed rehab, but we’re more than happy that she was willing to go get help before things got out of hand.  Way to go Selena!  We wish the best for you.

Gomez says she voluntarily checked into The Meadows recovery center for a two week stay in January. This news comes just barely over a month of her canceling her tour.
