Selena Gomez can sleep a little better at night — at least for now. A stalker-turned-intruder who was troubling the young star has been sentenced to a 30-day stint in a mental health treatment facility.
The perpetrator’s name is Che Cruz and it looks like he has targeted Selena for quite some time. Cruz reportedly has violated a protective order that Selena took out against him. The judge threw the proverbial book at Cruz and has ordered him to the 30-day in-patient stint at the mental health center, but the entire treatment program will last a total of 180 days. Additionally, the judge has extended the protective order for ten years. Now, Cruz could face a heavier sentencing if he comes within 200 feet of Selena Gomez.
In other news, it looks as if the “Come and Get It” singer is back on with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. The Biebs has had quite a hill of legal troubles in the past months, compounded upon a video that leaked showing him making racist and derogatory remarks.
Hollywood Life reports that the two have been seen out and about, holding hands and engaging in PDA. Just a few days ago, Justin and Selena were even seen attending a bible study group together. A close friend of Selena’s told Hollywood Life:
“Justin has told her that he’s changing his ways and she totally supports him and feels like he’s finally grown out of that bad boy phase. So they are both in really healthy and positive place right now. And what’s really been making a difference is that they have both praying together and you can tell what an impact this has been making on the both of them, especially Justin.”
There’s also rumors that Justin and Selena will soon collaborate on a song together. Sources told Hollywood Life that the two have been spending a lot of time in the studio.
“Selena is back on board working with Justin on a song,” says a close friend, “They started working on a single together a couple of months ago but Selena pulled out after a huge fight.”
Shortly after being seen together, Gomez, who is now 21, posted a picture of herself on Instagram wearing a bodysuit and a robe. Who was behind the camera remains a mystery.
It seems that these two can’t seem to quit one another. But how long will it last?
