She reportedly finished a two-week treatment program
There’s a reason why we haven’t heard from Selena Gomez in a while. As it turns out, the “Wolves” singer has been secretly seeking help at a rehabilitation center — only recently completing the program after spending two weeks working with trained professionals.
Though the 25-year-old previously checked herself into rehab for her struggles with depression and anxiety, which forced her to cancel her Revival World Tour in 2016, sources say she sought help this time around for some much, much bigger. As one insider puts it: “She doesn’t want to slip back to where she was ever.”
Selena Gomez is on the mend — again. The “Wolves” singer has been noticeably quiet for the last few weeks, and with good reason. As it turns out, she’s been secretly seeking help at a rehabilitation facility — only recently completing the program after spending two weeks working with trained professionals.
According to The Blast, the 25-year-old spent most of January holed up inside a treatment center in the New York area for issues relating to depression and anxiety. Selena reportedly flew to the Big Apple on Jan. 6 to check into rehab for on-site care.
Though the former Disney Channel star previously isolated herself from the world and took a social media hiatus when she stayed at a Tennessee facility to focus on her mental health in October 2016, insiders revealed she had a more relaxed approach to treatment this time around — including access to her phone and the option to check out whenever she needed to conduct business outside of rehab.
Selena was said to have focused on therapy and eating healthy during her stay. She also reportedly took part in pilates and meditation while seeking treatment.
“It’s about physical, mental wellness and clean eating. She was there for about two weeks but she was also in the city doing work,” a source told Us Weekly. “She doesn’t want to slip back to where she was ever.”
“She always wants to be proactive,” the insider added.
However, another source told Radar Online the rehab stint was something much more than mental health. According to that particular insider, Selena volunteered herself for treatment because her inner circle “is afraid she is back on drugs and racing toward a breakdown.”
The source claimed the decision was fueled by her recent reconciliation with on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber, saying, “The label just gave her another huge advance which, mixed with Justin’s resources — he’s covering her security and transportation — has led to some pretty heavy partying…even for her.”
