Selena Gomez is currently in rehab addressing struggles with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks, but unfortunately, she hasn’t been able to keep herself out of the headlines.
Following rumors regarding the singer’s possible drug problems and alleged reconciliation plans with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, 24, has been linked to Brad Pitt amid his divorce from Angelina Jolie.
Selena Gomez and Brad Pitt haven’t been seen together in recent months, but because they were allegedly involved in a flirty encounter earlier this year, Selena Gomez’s name was brought up after Jolie filed for divorce. In addition to Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Aniston being accused of involvement in Pitt and Jolie’s divorce, Selena Gomez was said to have played a role in the split due to photographs of the singer being found on the 52-year-old actor’s phone.
On October 24, Headlines & Global News claimed that after Selena Gomez found herself in the midst of the divorce between Pitt and Jolie, she allegedly suffered a breakdown. According to the report, Selena Gomez had grown fed up with the ongoing scrutiny and attention she was getting.

While Selena Gomez has stayed silent in regard to the alleged photos of her that were found on Pitt’s phone, a source claimed the discovery led to a major fight between Pitt and Jolie.
“[Angelina Jolie] found photos on his phone with everyone from flight attendants to biker babes at a motorcycle convention to Hollywood ingenues like Selena Gomez,” the source told OK! Magazine, via My Republica, adding that the pictures led to a “blowout fight” between them.
“She understands why women want to meet him, but why would he have photos with these random women?” the source asked.
Selena Gomez and Brad Pitt spent time together at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, and as they did, Gomez shared a photo of herself and Pitt, with whom she starred in The Big Short, on her Instagram page. In the photo, Gomez and Pitt were seen sitting next to one another on a couch.
In addition to Selena Gomez’s ties to Pitt, the singer has also been linked to the split between Justin Bieber and his latest flame, Sofia Richie. As fans will recall, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were involved in a nasty fight on Instagram just weeks into Bieber’s relationship with Richie after Bieber posted a photo of the two of them on his account.

While it is unknown what led Bieber and Richie to part ways just weeks after his fight with Selena Gomez, Gomez was rumored to have been involved and as their split played out, Gomez announced her career hiatus.
“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” Selena Gomez told People Magazine in a statement on August 30. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”
“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,” Selena Gomez continued. “Thank you to all my fans for your support. 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. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”
