Selena Gomez’s Ex-Boyfriend Justin Bieber Is Being Blamed For Her ‘Meltdown’ And Stint In Rehab

Have Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber both been negatively impacted by their Instagram feud weeks ago?

According to a new report, Selena Gomez may have been hiding the truth from her fans when she announced the end of her “Revival World Tour” by claiming to be suffering from Lupus symptoms when what she was really suffering from depression from her troubled on-and-off relationship with her singer ex-boyfriend.

On October 18, HNGN revealed that Selena Gomez had checked into a mental hospital prior to her trip to rehab and claimed Justin Bieber and his relationship with Sofia Richie may have been the cause. As fans will recall, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were involved in an Instagram feud in August, which was prompted by a photo shared by Bieber of himself and Richie.

Selena Gomez entered rehab after announcing her tour was ending weeks ago and while it has yet to be revealed when she will leave the facility, which is located outside of Nashville, Tennessee, there have already been allegations of a possible reunion with her ex-boyfriend. However, due to their highly publicized feud, it is hard to say whether or not the former couple will be able to get back on friendly terms.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s on-again off-again romance took a turn for the worse in August when the former couple came to blows due to a threat by Bieber against his fans. After sharing a photo of himself and his girlfriend and telling fans he was going to make his account private if they couldn’t be nicer to her, Selena Gomez fired back at the “Cold Water” singer, telling her former boyfriend that his fans loved him and suggesting he keep his romance with Richie to himself.

Unfortunately, Selena Gomez’s advice to Bieber didn’t go over well and he accused her of using him to get publicity for herself. In turn, Selena Gomez took their feud even further by accusing Bieber of cheating on her multiple times. He then suggested Zayn Malik had been a third party in their years-long romance and deleted his account altogether.

One month later, a source spoke to Life & Style and claimed the tension between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber had led the “Same Old Love” singer to have one of her worst years ever.

Selena Gomez felt “backed into a corner” by her famous ex before entering into rehab weeks ago, a source claimed, revealing that the singer was devastated by Bieber’s decision to flaunt his relationship on social media.

“It was really hard for her. She saw Justin looking so happy and that really sent her into a downward spiral,” the source explained.

Now, however, added the source, Selena Gomez wants “everyone to know where she’s coming from and how she feels… She knows she needs to take care of herself.”

In another report from In Touch Weekly around the same time, a source said Selena Gomez “had a meltdown,” which was only intensified as Bieber continued to ignore her in lieu of his then-girlfriend.

“The more he ignored her, the more she freaked out,” the source explained.

Although Bieber was dating Richie up until mid-September, they have since parted ways and Bieber is now hoping that Selena Gomez gets the help she needs in rehab.

“Justin and his family are praying that she gets the help she needs,” a source close to Bieber told the magazine. “They just want [Selena Gomez] to get well.”
