It’s been a tumultuous month for Selena Gomez, and for once the drama in her life is not related to Justin Bieber.
At least not directly.
Rumors about Selena’s drug use have been circulating for several months now with several media outlets claiming that the 24-year-old is seeking treatment for a prescription painkiller dependency.
Sources close to the singer have claimed that Gomez is stuck in a “dangerous downward spiral” that they fear could have disastrous consequences.
Now, Radar Online is claiming that Selena has checked into a rehab facility to undergo a 60-day treatment program.
“The facility is a women’s only facility in a secluded wooded area,” an insider tells the website, adding that Gomez may stay for “more than 60 days” if she feels the need for further counseling.
The source stated that Selena is not seeking treatment for any chemical dependency issues.
Rather, she’s reportedly “taking time to focus on her self and her health.”
Last year, Gomez revealed she’d been diagnosed with lupus, and that her condition necessitated an earlier stay in a long-term treatment facility.
The continued strain of staying healthy coupled with recent stresses in her personal life are believed to be responsible for Gomez checking in for another extended stay.
The insider says this latest facility was hand-picked by Selena and her management following extensive research.
“It’s not a huge celebrity center or anything like that, and it’s not somewhere where Selena has any ties,” the source claims.
“The rehab has a Christianity-based track, which might have been appealing given her religious background.”
In addition to the ongoing emotional strain of her on-again, off-again relationship with Bieber insiders claim rumors about Gomez’s involvement with Brad Pitt have been a major source of tension.
The Big Short co-stars were photographed together during awards season in early 2016, prompting rumors that their relationship was more than professional.
Gomez has been adamant that she and Pitt are nothing more than friends and co-stars.
Nevertheless, Selena was derided as a homewrecker after Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt last week.
Here’s hoping that the talented young songstress is able to find the help and support that she needs at this time.
