Is Selena Gomez currently in rehab due to her drama with Justin Bieber?
At the end of last month, 24-year-old Selena Gomez released a statement to fans regarding her future plans to take some time off. In her statement, Gomez revealed she was suffering from panic attacks, anxiety and depression.
While Gomez claimed at the time that her struggles were the result of her ongoing battle with Lupus, which is known to lead to mental illnesses, many have speculated that Bieber was somehow involved in her decision to cancel the remaining dates of her “Revival World Tour.”
On the day of Selena Gomez’s final “Revival World Tour” performance in Auckland, New Zealand, the singer was involved in a highly-publicized feud with Bieber after he posted a photo of himself and new girlfriend Sofia Richie, whom he began dating in early August, on Instagram. After seeing that Bieber had slammed his fans and followers for not being more supportive of his relationship, Gomez responded to the photo and message by telling her ex-boyfriend that he should stop posting photos of himself and Richie and reminded him that his fans love him. Unfortunately, the comment didn’t go over well with Bieber and the “Cold Water” singer proceeded to diss Gomez, claiming to fans that she was using him to get publicity for herself. In turn, Gomez suggested Bieber had cheated on her “multiple” times while they were dating.

Although Bieber is known for his love of the ladies and is often rumored to be dating many at a time, he appears to have recently settled down with Richie, who turned 18 at the end of last month.
“Things are different with Sofia Richie… He loves hanging out with her, and they have amazing chemistry,” the Hollywood Take revealed to readers on September 9. “Bieber has finally started to accept that he may never get back together with [Selena Gomez]. So, for the first time in a while, he’s trying to focus on one woman.”
While Bieber certainly has a right to move on from his romance with Selena Gomez, which came to an end years ago, the sudden loss of communication has reportedly been devastating for Gomez, who is known to reunite with Bieber from time to time.
“[Selena Gomez] is in a free fall,” a source close to Gomez revealed to In Touch Weekly magazine on September 9. “Her problems are a combination of drinking, partying and her lupus.”
In addition to her mental struggles, Selena Gomez has reportedly gotten even worse due to Bieber’s recent decision to cut off contact and ignore her completely. In fact, the magazine source claimed Gomez had a “meltdown” after Bieber refused to talk to her.
The source went on to reveal that despite Bieber’s alleged decision to cut Gomez out of his life, he wishes her the best and continues to pray for her recovery.
“Justin and his family are praying that she gets the help she needs. They just want Selena to get well,” the source explained.

She also didn’t confirm reports of a stint in rehab, either for mental issues or drug abuse.
