Selena Gomez went to rehab for booze, pot and Ambien

Selena Gomez

From what I’ve heard, based on a few people who’ve worked for her, Selena Gomez is apparently just super nice in real life and a complete professional. Well apparently, last month she quietly entered rehab to fight an addiction to booze, weed and Ambien. Although apparently she’s also blaming it on Justin Bieber, which … well, let TMZ explain it and then we’ll discuss that part …

But 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. The 2-week program at The Meadows is called DAWN … specifically designed for people between 18 and 26. DAWN specializes in substance dependence, trauma, family dynamics, mental health and relapse prevention.

I’m sure Justin probably isn’t the best influence — if anything, you could probably make the case that he is in fact the worst influence — but ultimately, she made some bad choices herself. Justin probably served as something of a catalyst and an enabler for her, but she can’t pin all of the blame on Justin. Either way though, as long as she’s healthy now, all the better.
