Report: Selena Gomez admits to brief rehab stint

Posted 3:21pm on Wednesday, Feb. 05, 2014

Selena Gomez, the Grand Prairie-bred singer-actress, has admitted to spending a couple of weeks at a rehab facility in Arizona in January, The Insider With Yahoo reports.

The stay at Dawn of the Meadows, which began Jan. 5 and lasted for two weeks, was “not for substance abuse,” a Gomez rep said in a statement cited by the website. The rep was apparently responding to reports such as this one on Radar Online, which has anonymous sources saying that Gomez had been partying pretty hard before the rehab stint.

“According to its website, Dawn at The Meadows specializes in patients ages 18-26 who are struggling with emotional trauma, addiction, or dual diagnosis concerns,” the Yahoo report says, noting that the stay coincides with Gomez’s latest breakup in her on-and-off-again relationship with Justin Bieber. Of course, Gomez has plenty of other things to cause her stress in her life.

Gomez last performed in DFW in December as part of the 106.1 Kiss FM Jingle Ball.
