Is Selena Gomez alright? The pop singer was photographed outside of her rehab facility in Tennessee smoking a cigarette with a bandaged up hand. How long will the recovering star stay out of the spotlight?Selena Gomez was caught looking a bit worse for wear outside of her rehab facility. The pop singer looked tired, with visible bags under her eyes. She wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and black jeans while taking a cigarette break outside with a nurse.
The recovering star was drinking out of a disposable coffee cup and appeared to be in good spirits.
Selena Gomez, 24, stepped away from the spotlight this summer to go to rehab to deal with "anxiety, panic attacks, and depression" sources told Radar Online.
The pop star shocked her fans and canceled her Revival tour in late August.
"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. 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."Radar Online reported a few weeks ago that the singer was expected to stay at the rehab for "more than 60 days."
"The rehab has a Christianity-based track, which might have been appealing given her religious background."When Selena first arrived at the rehab center in Tennessee sources confirmed that Selena was not being treated for drug-related problems, but she for her lupus diagnosis and mental health issues, an insider told US Weekly.
"Selena is dealing with lupus, but this break is to focus on her mental health. She can go to a very dark place."
