"Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse," a rep for Gomez told the magazine.

A report by TMZ reveals the onetime Disney star went to The Meadows in Arizona for 2 weeks to get away from former beau Justin Bieber. While sources say the singer went for help for a combination of problems, including alcohol, marijuana and prescription Ambien, it all allegedly stems from her time with her bad boy ex-boyfriend.

Sources told the celeb gossip site that Gomez’s rehab decision occurred when her camp when “ballistic” after she was recently spotted hanging with Bieber, and was largely based on "that crazy boy” and the excesses she was exposed to by being around the pop superstar and his entourage.

The 2-week program -- called DAWN – is designed for people between 18 and 26 and specializes in substance dependence, trauma, family dynamics, mental health and relapse prevention.

In December, Gomez hinted that something was amiss when she canceled the Australian leg of her Stars dance tour.

"It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be," she said in a statement at the time.
