Selena Gomez: Rehab stint kept quiet, Justin Bieber blamed for her problems

Selena Gomez quietly entered an Arizona rehab center last month and sources connected with the singer claim she blames Justin Bieber for her problems, according to TMZ on Feb. 5.

It's being confirmed on Wednesday that Selena Gomez, 21, entered Dawn at The Meadows in Arizona for two weeks of treatment on Jan. 5. A rep for the former Disney star told People that her stay was not for substance abuse.

However, another source close to Gomez revealed that in the months leading up to her rehab stint, she had been "partying very hard." Selena's wholesome public image was at odds with her real-life struggles with drugs and alcohol.

"With fame came a partying lifestyle," confirmed one insider to Radar Online. And apparently besides alcohol, Selena had been experimenting with marijuana, Xanax and particularly Ambien.

According to its website, Dawn at The Meadows rehab specializes in treating patients aged 18 to 26, "who are struggling with emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns."

But besides her alleged addictions to the pot, booze and prescription drugs, insiders say she's also addicted to Justin Bieber. While admitting they don't know if Bieber is directly responsible for Selena's addictions, he certainly wasn't a good influence.

Finally Gomez herself began to understand just what a bad influence Justin had been on her life. Smoking pot was said to be common place among Bieber and his pals, and she and Justin smoked together regularly.

Insiders say Selena's decision to go to rehab was largely based on "that crazy boy" Bieber. Gomez blames much of her problems on the excesses she was exposed to by being around Justin and his posse.

While that's all good, sources also are saying that since leaving rehab, Selena is not getting outpatient help, nor is she in therapy. That's not so good!
