Se­lena’s Mis­er­able in Re­hab

She’s had enough! Se­lena Gomez is ready to flee her treat­ment fa­cil­ity life, leav­ing loved ones ter­ri­fied

In Touch (USA) - - Crisis News -

She couldn’t stop smil­ing. On Oct. 9, Se­lena Gomez left the Brookhaven Re­treat re­hab in Sey­mour, Tenn., to en­joy a low-key toast-and-grits lunch at the nearby River­stone Fam­ily Restau­rant with her grand­par­ents. “Se­lena looked re­ally happy and was laugh­ing with her grand­par­ents. She just seemed real peace­ful,” fel­low diner Jes­sica Cham­bers tells In Touch. “My friend ac­tu­ally told her that she was proud of her for tak­ing care of her­self [ by check­ing into re­hab], and Se­lena said, ‘Thank you, that re­ally means a lot to me. I am do­ing re­ally good.’”

But she wasn’t be­ing to­tally hon­est. Se­lena, who sought treat­ment fol­low­ing a ter­ri­fy­ing down­ward spi­ral in which she was drink­ing and par­ty­ing ex­ces­sively, has been mis­er­able at the women-only re­hab fa­cil­ity. “She ab­so­lutely hates it there,” a source tells In Touch ex­clu­sively. “When the ac­tual ef­fects of de- tox­ing hit her body, she started com­plain­ing,” claims the source.

The 24-year-old, who can­celed her Re­vival World Tour in late Au­gust, also has been strug­gling with crip­pling anx­i­ety. “Se­lena keeps say­ing she feels like hell and wants to leave the fa­cil­ity or go switch to out­pa­tient treat­ment,” adds the source. “Every­one is wor­ried.”

They should be. “Ap­par­ently some of the medicine and treat­ment she’s re­ceiv­ing [to deal with her anx­i­ety] isn’t work­ing very well,” says the source. “One night she had hor­rific night­mares.” Se­lena was left shaken. “Ever since then, she’s been read­ing the Bi­ble be­fore she goes to sleep.”

She can’t wait to go home. “A few weeks ago, she called her friends and fam­ily and told them that she felt trapped,” says the source. “Her mom, Mandy [Teefey, 40], came to visit and took her out of the fa­cil­ity to talk. She’s still telling every­one that she wants to go home, and then gets mad be­cause she feels like they aren’t lis­ten­ing to her.” No one, adds the source, knows how to han­dle the sit­u­a­tion. “Se­lena doesn’t even sound like her­self on the phone.”

It’s got loved ones ter­ri­fied. “Se­lena claims she wants to be nor­mal again, but she makes jokes about par­ty­ing and even drink­ing, which is wor­ri­some,” says the source. “Every­one is so scared that Se­lena is go­ing to come home from re­hab and go back to her old ways. They know it’s go­ing to take time, but every­one’s just hop­ing Se­lena gets bet­ter.” ◼

“Her fam­ily is beg­ging her to stay,” a source says of Se­lena, who has been re­ceiv­ing treat­ment at Ten­nessee’s Brookhaven Re­treat.
