Selena Gomez

Blames Her Rehab Stint On Justin Bieber

2/5/2014 6:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Selena Gomez went to rehab last month ... and sources connected with the singer say she blames Justin Bieber for her predicament.

We've learned Gomez went to The Meadows in Arizona for 2 weeks of treatment.   

Sources say Selena went for a combination of problems, including alcohol, pot and prescription Ambien.  She's also addicted to Justin Bieber.

We're told Selena's decision was largely based on "that crazy boy" -- aka Bieber.  Selena blames a lot of her problems on the excesses she was exposed to by being around Bieber and his buddies.

Sources close to Gomez tell us ... people in Selena's camp went ballistic when they found out she was hanging out again with Justin ... and saw photos of her joyriding with him on Segways. We're told that was the final straw -- she checked into rehab immediately after that.

The 2-week treatment was part of a program called DAWN at The Meadows ... specifically designed for people between 18 and 26.  DAWN specializes in substance dependence, trauma, family dynamics, mental health and relapse prevention.

We're told Selena is not getting outpatient help now nor is she in therapy.

I don't get it. She looks like a 12 year old. But, shes apparently old enough to know how to join the Hollywood blame someone else club. And doesn't she have anyone to keep her out of trouble? Maybe a nanny?

I really can't stand when people blame others for their own misgivings. Like no one put a gun to her head and told her to smoke pot and take ambien. She did that because she wanted to. This story dropped so she has to blame someone. I'm not defending Justin but take responsibility for you own actions.

I wondered why she didnt ditch him once word started getting around about his actions/drugs. Now I see why, she was doing them right along his side.

Of she only stayed two weeks and has not needed out patient treatment, then there is no way she has any problem with alcohol or drugs. Her problem is that she is immature and can't deal with a BF not wanting her anymore. What a joke it is for her and her people to through this into the rehab ring when really the issue is that she is a child who needs to grow the **** up.

She's 21, if she lets a 19 year old boy who is clearly not the most clever one when it comes to drugs and alcohol, she's an idiot. And if she blames Justin for her drug/alcohol addiction she's a fool because she's the only one that can walkmaway from it and she never did it, she always came back. Act like a grown woman for once in your life and stop blaming everyone with the **** you put yourself up to.

I am sure Justin had a LOT to do with this, but... she is an adult now and is fully responsible for her own decisions. I hope she realizes that or she won't be able to stay clean.

She's an alcoholic pothead and she thinks 2 WEEKS in reahab is enough? OK, well good luck with that.

She won't get a grip on her problems if she keeps playing the blame game. She needs to take responsibility for her addictions.

It's funny how people on here are telling Selena to be mature and don't blame her problems on Justin. Yet in other comments you see the same users on articles on here that have to do with Bieber calling him childish names. He has depression and anxiety and yes he was diagnosed with it, but he has because of all the hateful people ridiculing him since the beginning and now that he's lost, hurt, and confused...they don't care they tell him to grow up even though they can't own up to bullying him for years and apologize SMH. Practice what u preach people

He is a bad influence, but she should not blame her behavior or actions on other people. She needs to grow up and take full responsibility for her own actions. Unless bieber or his friends force fed you drugs and etc,. Please grow up.
