Does Selena Gomez want to quit rehab after just weeks of treatment?
According to a new report, friends and family of the 24-year-old “Same Old Love” singer have grown concerned after learning that Selena Gomez has considered looking into less intense options to treat her mental health issues.
“Everyone is worried,” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine on October 20. “[Selena Gomez] keeps saying she feels like hell and wants to leave the facility or go switch to outpatient treatment.”
After Selena Gomez announced to People Magazine that she would be taking some time off to address symptoms of Lupus, which include depression, panic attacks, and anxiety, Us Weekly revealed the singer had checked into a facility outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
A short time later, a source confirmed Selena Gomez was expected to stay at the facility for “a few months.” Now, however, Selena Gomez is reportedly reconsidering her decision and while that would be 100 percent her choice, the source continued on to the magazine, revealing Gomez was dealing with far more than anyone knew before she checked into the rehab center.
“If anyone knew how bad [Selena Gomez] was, they’d be in shock,” the insider added.

In other Selena Gomez news, the singer’s mother, Mandy Teefey, is said to be totally worried about her daughter’s current condition and although Teefey is hoping for the best outcome possible, she is also preparing for the worst. In fact, according to a second report, Teefey is considering having Selena Gomez placed under a conservatorship.
“[Mandy Teefey’s] been reaching out to find out what it would take to get a conservatorship for [Selena Gomez],” a family insider revealed to In Touch Weekly magazine on October 20, via Hollywood Life. “She believes that a mental breakdown is possible if Selena doesn’t take this rehab stint seriously.”
Britney Spears was placed under a conservatorship years ago after she endured a now-infamous breakdown during which she shaved her head bald and attacked a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella.
If Selena Gomez is placed under a conservatorship, her mother would become her legal custodian, which means she would have control over Selena Gomez’s finances and major life decisions.

Currently, Selena Gomez is said to be feeling trapped in her situation at rehab and after lots of restrictions were put on her, her level of frustration increased.
In response to the In Touch Weekly story regarding Selena Gomez’s potential conservatorship, a source told Gossip Cop that the account was not true. As for her thoughts of leaving the facility, they have not yet been shot down as rumors.
When Selena Gomez announced that she would be taking some time off, she was in the midst of her Revival World Tour, which kicked off in Las Vegas in May and was expected to continue through December, when the singer’s final show was scheduled to take place in Mexico. The announcement was also made just two weeks after Selena Gomez and her on-again, off-again flame, Justin Bieber, were involved in an Instagram feud.
In her statement to People Magazine on August 30, Selena Gomez claimed her mental struggles were prompted by her Lupus diagnosis. However, in the weeks since the announcement was made, rumors of drug use have been swirling and other reports have suggested that the public drama between Selena Gomez and her ex-boyfriend was what ultimately pushed the singer over the edge and led her to seek treatment.
