While we’re all still a bit shocked over the news that Selena Gomez checked herself into rehab in January, friends and family have revealed that they saw it coming.
On December 6 Selena was caught lip syncing while on stage at the Jingle Ball in Los Angeles. Shortly after the mishap she freaked out which was a warning sign to her family of her struggle.
A source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.com, “She was acting out a lot and one of those signs was when she freaked out during Jingle Ball when she was caught lip syncing. That actually was a blessing in disguise as her people were able to use that moment to talk to her and deal with her problems.”
The incident allowed team Selena to express their concerns and discuss everything but when Selena reunited with Justin Bieber, they took it as another warning sign.
“She hung out with him because she was obsessed with the lifestyle even more than loving him,” the source added about their Segway reunion in January. “Add those two things together and it’s a complete nightmare. Her people knew she needed the help.”
Those close to Selena are doing their best to keep Selena away from Justin who, they believe, is a poor influence on Selena.
“Everyone between friends, family and handlers want Justin completely out of her life,” another source spilled to HollywoodLife.com. “They are making sure she is with someone at all times, like a sober friend so she doesn’t go visit Justin. She was left to herself when she went to go see him last time and that mistake will never happen again.”
Sounds pretty strict! But hey, if it helps Selena get better, we’re all for it.
