Selena Gomez

Blames Her Rehab Stint On Justin Bieber

Exclusive Details

0204-selena-gomez-01
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.

the truth    

not sure if she really blames JB cuz if your in rehab they teach you not to blame others so i say this story is BS .
when it comes to Selena i really dont think shes gonna go anywhere in hollywood. shes just the girl who dated JB and thats it. shes nothing special and shes gonna use his name 4 attention.

I know what it is like to be addicted to someone you love. I never heard of this type of therapy. I hope if successful she speaks out on it. She is such a nice smart beautiful woman.

She encourages girls to be strong when she is weak. Own up to your mistakes. Don't blame others for your actions. I have more respect for Miley who dealt with an engagement breakup really well (meaning no addiction) and selena on the other hand can't accept her 19 year old x boyfriend doesn't want her . Saaaad

She can try to blame it on Bieber all she wants, but the fact that she chose to be with him to begain with shows she wasn't right in the head before him.

Funny thing she blames Justin and everybody around Justin blames Selena because of the break-up. It appears they both can't deal with losing each other. As for the pot smoking Selena has a best friend Demi and others that are into that scene too, why just blame Justin? She was partying pretty hard when she and Justin broke up, so how can she blame him?

Just My Opinion    

Well, they say you are who you hang with, but you could have said no to alcohol and pot. Also if you were already taking a prescription drug such as Ambien, you should have know better to drink or even to smoke pot while taken this. If you felt not right, you could have got out of the relationship sooner, before you did have to go to rehab.

It's not that you can not find another bf, that will not try to make you do these type of things with him. Be good to yourself, you are a very pretty girl. Don't mess that up.
Find ya a guy that does not drink, smoke, or do drugs.

Rehab for Alcohol & Ambien, OK. But nobody needs Rehab for POT! Cannabis is good for you and everyone should be ingesting it for longevity, good health, and preventing cancer.

Blaming a 19 year old immature brat for her drug problems? Lol! Two weeks is not enough time to kick a drug problem btw. Both these kids are idiots.

As adults, we are responsible for our own actions, though, and we make our own choices in life. Blaming Bieber is pretty stupid. You're no longer in high school, Selena. Chalking it down to "peer pressure" is not enough now.

Lol I don't believe she went to rehab for any type of drugs. She wouldn't stay for only 2 weeks if that was the case. She just needed to get away...or needed something to tell TMZ.

She's the one who kept the 'boy' dangling and going back when she wanted. She could have just stayed away because they're bad for each other. She's no angel. Should have taken Taylor Swift's advice.
