Selena Gomez

Secret Weapon In Demi Lovato's Addiction Battle

EXCLUSIVE

Selena Gomez went to rehab ... but NOT for herself.

Selena showed up to provide moral support for her good friend, Demi Lovato ... who has successfully been fighting her addictions for two years.

Demi -- who actually lived in a sober living home for more than a year -- showed up to speak to a recovery group ... something she rarely does, and Selena came along for the ride to support her.

We're told ... Demi spoke to the group for an hour ... telling a pretty inspiring personal survival story.

The "X Factor" judge has publicly acknowledged struggling with anorexia, bulimia and cutting ... stories she recalled in vivid detail.  Demi went on to say she wanted to surround herself with positive influences, which is why she chose to live in the facility for an extended period and why she values Selena as a friend.

Props to Selena ... and Demi.

Hmmm, Selena trying to repair her image after dropping the F-bomb and storming off stage like a diva. Good luck with that Selena. Oh, did you forget you slept with Dweeber? Ain't no coming back from that abomination.

I would give her props - if she ever told the truth and admitted that she went to rehab because she was doing as much cocaine as Tony Montana. But instead her "team" created all the fake PR "oh, she cuts herself :( " to gain sympathy. It was a carefully crafted plan to get her back on the Hollywood track to keep those $$ rolling in. They create phony story, they keep getting paid.
And her only "eating" issue was that she was doing so much coke she was skinny as a rail, she quit the coke and ballooned up. It's not rocket science.

I'll give props to Demi Lovato too. She's still young but she seems to realize she has some demons that she has to learn how to live with and keep at bay. Not easy. Good luck to her.

Love these two girls. I remember them both from their Barney days. My daughters 14 and 12 grew up with them and both Demi with het issues and Selena with her choice of boyfriends are still pisitive role models. Niw that my daughter is a frosh in h. S. Drugs are everywhere and i can talk till i m blue in the face but seeing some one she grew up with saying the same is pretty inspiring. I wish she would dump jonas dad as her manager though. And Selena just love her, f bomb or not.

Until the bitch admits her coke addiction and its role in her violent rampages a few years ago, and outs Wilmer Valderrama as her supplier, she's still just another addict in denial.

But she doesn't want to own up to the weed use with Miley Cyrus as early as 15, according to that one Jonas.

HOW.. .BIG Props.
Its NOT easy stepping into an unfamiliar place like rehab. Selena is a good friend and means well... Being sober at 31 for 16 years is a hard thing to do so BIG PROPS to both of them... Hopefully Selena will stay away from Justin and remain who she is...
