Selena Gomez In Rehab? How Justin Bieber And Her Friend’s Murder Sent Her Into A Pill-Popping Meltdown

Selena Gomez was forced to delay her Revival Tour amid reports of her incessant drug use.

Gomez told fans that she had to cancel because she was fighting complications from lupus. However, an inside source told Radar Online the hiatus is related to Gomez’s pill-popping meltdown.

What caused Gomez to turn to drugs in the middle of her tour?

“Her mom and step dad stepped in after they returned from the Auckland show a few weeks ago because she wasn’t acting like herself.”

The insider added that Gomez was caught using “Lunesta, Ambien, Klonopin and Xanax. Not all at once. And more ‘recreational’ than any one thing specifically.”

Despite the presence of her family, Gomez managed to hide her drug use for quite some time.

Apparently, she had no problems concealing the drugs and was being supplied by some of her own dancers, many of whom are now off the tour.

“Selena wanted to finish the tour, but her team said absolutely not,” the insider continued. “The announcement today is to trigger the health clause in the insurance policy for the tour, because they’re staring down two whole legs, with 30 shows, and refunding millions in tickets sold.”

This isn’t the time Gomez has faced rumors of drug use.

Back in 2014, the singer was sent to a rehab facility in Arizona while reports indicated that she had been abusing Xanax, Ambien, and marijuana.

Of course, Gomez denied the drug use and instead announced that doctors had diagnosed her with lupus.

In fact, according to E! Online, Gomez is taking a break from touring because of lupus. Her break, per Gomez’s official statement, has nothing to do with drugs.

“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” Gomez shared. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”

Selena Gomez went on to reveal that she underwent chemotherapy, which was the primary cause of her decision to remain out of the spotlight.

That being said, there are other reasons why Gomez is having another meltdown.

Radar Online reports that Gomez started to go downhill after the death of her friend, Christina Grimmie, who was tragically murdered.

“I don’t really understand how this really happened,” an emotional Gomez shared after Grimmie’s murder.

At the same time, the Sun is reporting that Gomez is also dealing with the breakup with Justin Bieber.

Bieber and Gomez have been separated for years, but rumors of a reunion surfaced after the two were spotted together.

However, Bieber recently sparked a new romance with Sofia Richie and flaunted the relationship on his now deleted Instagram account.

Coupled with Grimmie’s death, seeing Bieber with another woman was reportedly the final straw for Gomez, who turned to drugs to deal with everything.

It should be noted, however, that Gomez has not addressed the rumors about her drug use.

Until more information is revealed, the singer is sticking by her story that lupus is to blame for hiatus from music.

“You know how ­special you are to me, but I need to face this head-on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best,” she told fans. “I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”

“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off,” Gomez continued. “Thank you to all my fans for your support.”
