Selena Gomez In Emergency Room: Star Tested For Strep Throat

Selena Gomez In Emergency Room: Star Tested For Strep Throat

Selena Gomez was in the emergency room Monday, but reps for the young actress say it was only a precautionary visit and that she was released shortly after.

As E! News reported, Selena was in the emergency room briefly on Monday to be tested for strep throat. Selena had to end her recording session earlier than planned on Sunday because her throat was apparently bothering her, a source said.

“Also, her stepfather has had bronchitis so she wanted to be extra careful to make sure she wasn’t getting it, too,” the source added.

Selena’s late night at the American Music Awards could have something to do with her feeling under the weather. She was seen with former and possibly current boyfriend Justin Bieber, celebrating his big night where he took home three awards, including best artist. The two were seen holding hands backstage at the official post-show party.

The weekend didn’t start out so well for Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. They had planned a to meet at a restaurant on Saturday to talk about their relationship, which ended last week, but they reportedly got into a fight and left before the meal arrived.

All was apparently well, however, as Selena and Justin were seen attending an after-party thrown by Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun.

Selena’s visit in the emergency room was apparently nothing to worry about either, Cover Media reported. Though the testing for strep throat isn’t due back until later this week, sources say that doctors don’t believe she has the ailment.

    Is'nt this her "private" medical history then why? and how? do we know about it.WOW the starkarazzi is BAD.

    So many people waste time at the ER! It's for EMERGENCIES people! Broken, bleeding, chest pain, respiratory distress, not a SORE THROAT! Call your primary care doctor, they do a rapid strep test and results are within 5 minutes. Stop using costly medical care when you should be seeing your regular doctor.

    With the money she has, there is no "staff Doctor" on call? Her record company or studio does not have this?
    Oh well, too much of Bieber fever, I guess.

  6. Sharon Khilling

    OMG she has strep throat and this is news? And…she couldn't see a dr. earlier in the day instead of walking into an ER? Sheesh – this is ridiculous. Spoiled crazy celebs yet again….

  7. Pam Bedard

    Emergency Room, Really. For strep throat test? I don't think that constitutes an emergency.

    I'm in the medical field and people do it all the time! Also, you do not take antibiotics for the flu, they do not help with viruses, which the flu is, but everyone that gets it wants antibiotics. That's why MRSA is out in the public now, oveduse of antibiotics. Only time will cure that. Gotta let it run it's course.

    I don't have anythingto say its all being said. right here. who theu fuck cares. I have not been able to get a dr to care for my life since last year and I lost my abilty to thive who fuck cares. I list my whole life career a miracle my soul my wealth my life, my story to a illness that I almost lost it to years ago and had to save myself and got to dr to tel him topu tme in a hospitla and for me not to go to er. this is why people suck. she need call conrad murray that's all.

    After knowing this information, I also need to know where and what she ate today, so I'll be able to sleep tonight!

  11. Nathan Sims

    I was just speculating. I've read up on HIV and a lot of tell tale signs are throat related. Let's face it, she's slept with the Biebs and he has probably gotten around more often than not. Anyway, it wasn't a serious comment.

  12. Shana Sundin Hutchens

    ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? She is Selena fing Gomez – doesn't she have a physician on retainer or something? The ER? SERIOUSLY? Is this story even real, Yahoo =/.

  13. Zandra Thomas

    lol really? people are reporting over this? OMG SOMEONE GET HER SOUP. -_-

  14. Connie Pouncil

    I tell you who goes to the ER someone that is on several different kinds of medication and can't take alot of the over the counter drugs. That's who. Because I am one of those people and I am not very proud of it.

  15. Verri Koehler

    BUT THIS GIRL KNOWS BEIBER, CLEAR ALL THE OTHER PATIENTS OUT, SHE MUST BE SAVED, OH NNO SHE HAS BEIBER COOTIES ALREADY SHOW HER THE DOOR.

    the main reason people go to the ER for things like that is generally not being able to get a doctors appt(sometimes i cant get 1 for a week-2 weeks in the future so i can understand why some people do that).its not like theyre forced to see you in the ER, its more or less just a last option kind of thing to be safe

  17. Terri Baker

    Not in my area, you can get an urgent care appointment within a day, usually the same day. There are also walk in clinics. An average ER visit costs about $800. in this area. An urgent care visit to the doctor is about $75. I'm pretty sure people like Selena Gomez have their own doctor, or should have anyway. I don't care how much money you make off your "voice", don't waste the emergency room's time. Just sayin!

  18. Devon MacNeil

    you're lucky, my family and a lot of people i know have trouble getting appointments quite often(just our luck i guess plus our doctor loves to take vacations.i dont agree with going to the ER either but if i was worried about my well being i wouldnt hesitate.that doesnt really apply to general illnesses though as theyre not that bad

  19. Buce McLaughlin

    Going to ER for STREP THROAT?
    OK…well, if Selena can go to the ER for Strep Throat, I'm going to the ER, via helicopter, for a splinter!

  20. Minnie Alice Wilson

    But, Brenda, she's a 'Celebrity'! LOL and People are being slaughtered around the world! Prayers for peace…Just some peace & quiet is all my Grandma would request for a birthday or Christmas gift! She never needed much more than her family around her! Would that we could be so satisfied today! Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours, my friend!

    Who goes to the EMERGENCY ROOM for a common case of Strep Throat? How about she handle it the same way the rest of us do when we're sick… we DEAL WITH IT.

    Oh, never mind the gunshot wounds, heart attacks and people dying… the Disney "star" Selena Gomez has a sore throat…. what a freakin cry baby.

  24. Leroy James Knopfler

    My first reaction was: "I thought that bitch got shot by her maid", then I realized this was some other Selina and not Jennifer Lopez. Then I was like, "Oh, her? whatever!"

    Donna Murphy Things can always be something more serious than one thinks. Its ALWAYS safer to be alarmed than to be sorry. It COULD HAVE been something more threatening. When people are able, they should do NOW than wait a week after making an appointment. PLUS, ERs make the least serious cases wait longer. Stop being an idiot.

    Ernesto, nice just COPY/PASTING the same thing over and over, even when your copy/paste doesn't acknowledge the full content of the post. The point is, strep throat IS A SHITTY NEWS STORY, period. Get off your high horse, you raving douche bag.

  33. Mario Millan

    Pprobably caught something from that Canadian import. I wish these foreigners and other non-Mexicans would stay away from our womenfolk (squaws). We don't like it.

  34. Ray Whaley

    That is why, in Texas, people die in the emergency because they're packed with people who shouldn't be there in the first place. And guess what, the people of L.A. are paying for Selena's emergency room people.

  35. Rufina Yagudina

    Moreno. Or is it moron? There are people with injuries at the ER and I am pretty sure that minute Gomez stepped into that ER, that ER personnel dropped everything they were doing just to get closer to yet another pseudo celebrity. and just because you are Hispanic and so is Selena Gomez, does not make you any less of an idiot or a bigot yourself. Strep throat is not life threatening unless it is left untreated for a while and regular doctor should be able to diagnose that in a jiffy. I am pretty sure she got a doctor, why run to emergency room for something like that
