It’s like an episode of Hollywood “Where are they now?” the light speed version. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were, at one time, the hottest young couple in celebrityville with the world in the palms of their hands. Fast forward about 30 seconds, Bieber is in jail and Gomez is in rehab. What the heck is going on here?
In the latest development from the news headline machine Justin Bieber, the (ex) pop star has completely shirked blame for Selena Gomez’ secret rehab trip in January. For those who are just catching wind of this story, Gomez wasn’t “exhausted” when she cancelled her tour in January. Gomez actually spent time in a rehab clinic in Arizona for non-substance abuse related issues. Whatever it is that’s ailing her, Bieber isn’t accepting one ounce of responsibility for it.
According to PerezHilton, Biebs despite being busted for drugs, alcohol, and every other vice on earth refuses to believe he was a bad influence on Gomez. It’s still unclear as to whether Gomez was involved with substances, was broken-hearted, or some other odd reason, but according to Bieber it’s not his fault.
We find that hard to believe. We also hope that Gomez is alright.
