Shock revelation: Selena Gomez, 21, was admitted to Dawn at The Meadows recovery centre in Arizona on January 5, and spent two weeks at the facility, her rep has confirmed
Although her reps have denied this, Star claims that the Come And Get It singer was ‘heavily into the drug Molly (which contain MDMA)’ and was using prescription drugs like Xanax and Ambien.
The former Disney child star was urged to seek help by those close to her amid concerns her partying was getting out of control.
Meanwhile, TMZ have claimed that Selena blames her ex Justin for her ‘predicament’.
Another source has told Radar: ‘Her friends and family became increasingly worried that there might be a serious problem with Selena.
‘Particularly, her parents. The partying was, at times, wild. They wanted to help her — and they very much encouraged her to go to rehab. Others very close to her also urged her to seek professional help.’

Another added: ‘It’s important to remember that Selena had worked in Hollywood non-stop for six years. She was exhausted. Selena was smart enough to understand that she needed to take control of her life.
‘It just got to a point where she needed to get out of Los Angeles, get away from ‘the scene’ and the pressures of Hollywood, to also get away from those who had, admittedly, become a bad influence on her.
‘Selena needed to take the opportunity to work on herself. She realised she needed help.’

Confirming the news: A representative for Gomez has revealed that she ‘voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse’.
Selena – who reportedly ‘regularly’ smoked marijuana with Justin – had been due to tour Australia this month but cancelled the shows in order to ‘spend time on [herself].’
And the brunette beauty is now said to be doing well.
A source said: ‘Selena is now happy and very healthy and already getting back to work.’
At the time of her cancelling her tour, it was reported that Selena was suffering from Lupus disease, although this was not confirmed or denied by her reps.
In a statement to her fans about cancelling her shows, Selena said she needed to ‘spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.’
Adding: ‘My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them,’
‘But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.’
