Selena Gomez Secretly Checked Into Rehab in January

Selena Gomez, 21, has been on the go since age 15, so it's not surprising to hear that the former Disney star hit the brakes and took a secret break in January – which involves checking herself into a two-week rehabilitation center.

A source told E! News:

"There was no substance abuse. She just needs to clear her head." The rep continued to state that the singer, "voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse."

Although she was hush-hush on the rehab "vacation,"  she gave her fans a hint when she canceled the Australian leg of her Stars Dancers tour in December. Gomez stated at that time:

 "It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be."
