Earlier this week, we reported that Disney darling Selena Gomez entered rehab for “exhaustion.” Needless to say, we were surprised that the seemingly perfect “Stars Dance” singer was another member of the celebrity rehab club.
Now, Demi Lovato is opening up about her friend of 14 years’ secret two-week stay in an Arizona facility last month.
Demi, who herself has battled substance abuse and addiction, was nothing but supportive.
Though she didn’t get into details about why Gomez entered rehab, she told E!News:
“That’s all of her business, and I just want to let her do her thing. And yeah, she’s amazing. I love her.”
Lovato told E! News:
“It’s just important to me, for people to see that it’s not, when you’re a drug addict, that it’s your fault. It’s not even a conscious decision. When you’re in your disease, you do things impulsively. You don’t think forward. When you’re a drug addict, you are in pain and this is the only way you know how to medicate it.”
With a friend like Demi, Selena is surely in good hands.
