Selena Gomez checked herself into rehab, according to a Feb. 5 RadarOnline report. The pop star secretly checked herself into Arizona’s Dawn at the Meadows recovery facility on Jan. 5 for alleged emotional issues. A rep for the “Come and Get It” singer confirmed Gomez’s stay at the Arizona rehab facility, which according to its own website, “specializes in patients 18 to 26 years old who are struggling with emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns.”

Gomez’s rep was quick to point out, however, that Gomez’s two week stay at the facility had nothing to do with addiction. “Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse,” the singer’s rep revealed. A source close to the Justin Bieber’s ex, told RadarOnline otherwise, revealing that prior to her voluntary rehab stay, she had been “partying very hard.”

The singer had reportedly been abusing marijuana, as well as prescription drugs, including Xanax and sleeping aid, Ambien. “Her friends and family became increasingly worried that there might be a serious problem with Selena,” another source told the RadarOnline.

According to People Magazine, Gomez’s emotional or exhaustion issues are nothing new. In December, she cancelled the Australian leg of Star Dance concert to take a break from her busy work schedule. At the time she issued a statement saying, “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.”

RadarOnline reports that Gomez has been dealing with issues since she broke up with Bieber. “Selena came to understand just what a bad influence Justin had been on her life,” a source said. “Their relationship left her broken-hearted.” Contrary to the good girl image Gomez portrays to her fans, she indulged in drug use with her ex. “I don’t know whether Justin pushed her to drug use, but amongst their close knit group of friends, smoking was common place,” said another source. “Justin and Selena would smoke marijuana together regularly.”
