When Selena Gomez broke her silence after news broke about her stint in rehab, she told her fans via Instagram, “I’ve done everything I could to the best of my ability.”
However, a source close to the 21-year-old tells In Touch there’s one thing that continues to remain a toxic presence in her life—on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber.
“Selena’s family doesn’t know what to do. She didn’t tell anyone that she was still seeing Justin or still talking to him. She promised she would cut him out of her life,” the source close to Sel tells the mag. “Most of her rehab focused on getting over him and now she is back into it. She isn’t taking anyone’s calls or answering their texts. She is shutting everyone out. Her family is panicked, especially her mom.”
Last week, Justin posted an Instagram of the two of them dancing to John Legend’s “Ordinary People” at a Texas dance studio. The passion of Dirty Dancing-esque routine is reminiscent of what her management is most concerned about.
“Her team is also panicked. Justin is terrible for Selena’s brand and they want her as far away from him as possible,” the source says. “They’re these kids who think they are Romeo and Juliet and everyone is keeping them apart, which just makes them want to be together more. Selena isn’t listening to anyone right now.”
The reunion came as a surprise to those closest to the former Disney Channel star—especially her mom, Mandy, who has been preoccupied with Sel’s 9-month-old sister Gracie.
“Her mom is really worried,” the source discloses to In Touch. “She has her hands full with Gracie and this is making her a nervous wreck.”
