Selena Gomez stepped off a flight in Atlanta on Thursday, and people are buzzing about how she looked.
Why all of the attention? Because the 24-year-old looked “exhausted,” according to the Mirror. The news source said that Gomez looked “extremely sleepy,” which makes sense, not only because of her travels but also because of her recent endeavors. Selena announced last month that she plans to drop a new single, “It Ain’t Me,” and she has also been busy promoting Netflix’s upcoming series 13 Reasons Why, which she co-produced.

The singer arrived at the Atlanta airport wearing white sneakers, gray tracksuit pants, and a powder blue coat by Karl Lagerfield (which you, too, can buy for $757). Whereas the Selena Gomez we know and love is usually fabulous and glamorous in every way all day every day, seeing her makeup-less and sleepy does not happen very often.
Some have speculated that Selena is maybe not as happy in her relationship with 27-year-old singer The Weeknd as she says.

Selena and The Weeknd have been public for a while, but reports suggest that there is a rocky aspect to the relationship. While Selena works hard to show the world that she is serious about him, her friends are concerned about the couple, reports say. Life and Style claimed that Selena’s friends fear that The Weeknd is a “bad influence” on her, according to an anonymous source.
“A lot of Selena’s friends and family fear that she’ll go down the wrong path again. They feel she needs to be surrounded by healthy people.”
Their fears are founded in Selena’s past. She has had some relationships throughout the years that were unhealthy for her, the news source further explained. Particularly, her relationship with Justin Bieber.
The singer has been open about her struggles with lupus — a disease resulting in joint pain, fatigue and sometimes rash — as well as other health issues. Life and Style said that Selena spent 90 days in rehab last fall for “what she claimed were lupus-related panic attacks and anxiety.” However, the source explained that another insider denies that lupus was the reason.
“While Selena does suffer from lupus and other health issues, that’s not the reason she went to rehab,” an insider shared. “Her biggest addiction is Justin. She became a different person around him. She was extremely jealous and possessive and felt like she had to keep up with him to keep him. So she would drink and smoke, and then she got into weed and partying.”
Her past relationships and issues are a major contributor to why Selena’s mom, Mandy, is not supportive of her dating The Weeknd. Apparently, Mandy has heard the “dirty and drug-related lyrics” to his songs, the source said, and is now “pressuring” her daughter to dump the singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye.
While she is obviously getting a lot of negative feedback from friends and family, Selena Gomez does not seem ready to give him up. But all of it begs the question: are their concerns founded? Let us know what you think and leave your comments below!
