It's clearly not easy for Justin Bieber to know that his ex, Selena Gomez is struggling in rehab.
The 24-year-old checked into an all-women's facility last week for anxiety, depression, and excessive partying — but In Touch has learned that the "Sorry" singer may have also had a hand in Sel's downward spiral, and now he's "praying" that she gets the help she needs.
A source revealed that the brunette beauty had a "meltdown" when Justin, 22, started dating model, Sofia Richie and posted photos online.
“The more he ignored [Selena], the more she freaked out,” the source said.

Justin and Sofia's romance quickly fizzled out shortly thereafter, but the heartbreak that Selena felt clearly didn't. Now, she's working through her issues while in rehab, but it hasn't been an easy ride for her — and even told friends she felt "trapped."
“Justin and his family just want Selena to get well," a source close to the singer told In Touch.
