Selena Gomez disappeared for a couple weeks in January to attend emergency rehab. A rep for Gomez said she “voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse.” Sources say she was there because of Justin Bieber, prescription drugs and weed. The stay apparently helped her realize that Bieber is a bad influence. She needed two weeks for someone to tell her this. She’s not very bright, it seems.
“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 realized she needed help. Selena came to understand just what a bad influence Justin had been on her life,” said one source. “Their relationship left her broken-hearted.”
“I don’t know whether Justin pushed her to drug use, but amongst their close knit group of friends, smoking was common place,” said another insider. “Justin and Selena would smoke marijuana together regularly.”
Indeed, in one binge session, Gomez and Bieber together with a bunch of pals “hot-boxed” inside the “Baby” hit-maker’s custom built van on a trip to a theme park, a source revealed. Hot-boxing is the practice of smoking marijuana in an enclosed space in order to maximize the narcotic effect.
Not the evil marijuana! I heard Philip Seymour Hoffman once smoked a joint. Look what happened to him!
