Selena Gomez is taking time to focus on number one in the wake of rumors of a breakup between her and Justin Bieber! An insider revealed that the “It Ain’t Me” singer has been overwhelmed by the attention surrounding their rekindled romance, and is also determined to repair her relationship with her mother Mandy Teefy, who said publicly she was “not happy” about the couple getting back together. Click through for more information on Selena’s break from the spotlight.
"Selena is very delicate; her 'comeback' to the spotlight has been tough — especially with the interest in her personal life with Justin and her mother,” an insider told ET.
“She is taking time to herself. This is not the first time she has done this," the source explained. Earlier this year, Selena voluntarily completed a two-week treatment program for depression and anxiety at a facility in New York City.
Part of Selena’s motivation for some time out of the spotlight is to work on her relationship with her mother, who never approved of the singer’s decision to get back with Justin. "She wants to repair her relationship with her mother, that's a priority for her, too," the pal told ET.
However, an insider told People that Selena’s mom has nothing to do with her recent break from Justin. “They’re not on a break because of her relationship with her mom. They have their own issues and are always on and off,” the source said. “She wouldn’t base her relationship off of what her mom thinks.”
Justin and Selena decided to take a break earlier this month, but friends close to the couple don’t expect it to last long. “They will probably be fine again soon,” an insider told People. "She needs to figure out how to live the life she wants in the spotlight — if that's even possible," the other source told ET.
