And now, in the most shocking news (probably) that you'll read today, the New York Daily News is reporting that Selena Gomez secretly checked into a rehab facility last month to "take some time for herself" after she canceled an entire leg of her upcoming tour citing exhaustion.
From the New York Daily News:
The 21-year-old "Come & Get It" singer entered rehab at The Meadows recovery center in Arizona in January for a two-week stay, a rep for the star confirmed to the Daily News.
"Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse," her rep said in a statement.
According to her rep, Gomez checked into the facility for exhaustion, because that is obviously what people do when they are exhausted. Radar Online, however—ever the reliable source—reports something much darker: According to them, Gomez, who previously dated Justin Bieber, "partied with drugs and booze."
The former Disney princess — who first made her debut appearing as Gianna in Barney & Friends and starred in Wizards of Waverly Place — had been experimenting with marijuana and prescription drugs, including Xanax and Ambien.
Ambien, prescribed as a sleep aid, has become a drug of choice for many in Hollywood because it is similar to drinking a large amount of alcohol where one feels completely relaxed and loses control of their body.
“Her friends and family became increasingly worried that there might be a serious problem with Selena,” said another source.
Unsurprisingly, Gomez nor her rep have commented on Radar Online's report.
