It has been revealed that Selena Gomez secretly spent some time in rehab. Her rep confirmed that she went to a rehabilitation center in Arizona for exhaustion.
"Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse," a rep for the “Come & Get It” singer told People.
Gomez, 21, spent two weeks at Dawn at the Meadows in Arizona last month. At the end of December, Gomez cancelled the Australian leg of her tour.
She said at the time, “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."
RadarOnline was the first to report that Gomez had checked into rehab.
Although her rep insisted drugs and alcohol were not the problem, sources close to the singer say she had been partying hard in the weeks leading up to rehab.
“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,” a source said of her parents and those close to her.
She was reportedly experimenting with prescription drugs and marijuana. Gomez was also reportedly “broken hearted” from her messy break-up with Justin Bieber.
