Sources close to the former Disney star, 21, say her parents became worried that her partying was becoming too much so they decided she needed help before it became to late.

An insider told a US website: “Her friends and family became increasingly worried that there might be a serious problem with Selena. Particularly, her parents. The partying was, at times, wild.

“They wanted to help her – and they very much encouraged her to go to rehab. Others very close to her also urged her to seek professional help.”

The source said that Selena ‘became exhausted’ and decided it was time to take control of her life.

“It’s important to remember that Selena had worked in Hollywood non-stop for six years. She was exhausted. Selena was smart enough to realise that she needed to take control of her life.

“It just got to the point where she needed to get out of Los Angeles, get away from ‘the scene’ and the pressures of Hollywood, to also get away from those who, admittedly, been a bad influence on her.”
