Selena Gomez can’t seem to catch a break these days.
Shortly after news spread that the singer spent two weeks in rehab earlier this year, the gossip machine began spitting out half-baked theories. Did Justin Bieber’s brush with the law cause her to seek treatment? Was Gomez struggling with substance abuse? Since there were no clear or official answers, people just assumed the worst.
Since giving pop stars a ridiculously hard time is all the rage these days, the folks at Star magazine recently posted a story about Selena Gomez’s possible return to rehab. According to the publication, the singer is very close to heading back to an undisclosed facility for even more treatment.
“She’s still very fragile and not coping with her problems at all. She’s jabbering to herself, and everyone is worried she’s about to pull a Britney [Spears] — she’s a very troubled young girl, and if she doesn’t get it together, the psych ward could be next,” a so-called “friend” told the publication.
The anonymous source added, “Everyone became increasingly worried that there might be a serious problem with Selena. They wanted to help her and encouraged her to go to rehab. She’d worked in Hollywood non-stop for six years. She was exhausted and smart enough to understand that she needed to take control of her life.”
Although Gomez’s representative said the singer didn’t seek help for substance abuse, people seem weirdly obsessed about her alleged “return to alcohol.” Since the folks at TMZ suggested that she sought help for addiction, the fact that Selena Gomez is drinking seems to have the internet in a tizzy.
For example, the folks at India.com seem preoccupied with an Instagram photo that showed Selena Gomez sipping a cocktail. Since people automatically assume you’re addicted to something if you decide to seek professional treatment at a rehabilitation facility, people are up in arms about her decision to have a drink.

Until Gomez officially explains why she decided to spend some time in rehab, it’s probably best to ignore any reports from publications such as Star magazine. However, don’t hold your breath that Selena will cough up that information anytime soon.
What do you think about the rumors surrounding Selena Gomez at the moment? Do you believe that the singer is getting ready to return to rehab?
