A representative for the star, who is in an on/off relationship with Justin Bieber, told RadarOnline: "Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse."

The Arizona recovery facility says on its website that it treats young people for "emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns."

Selena is said to have spent two weeks there in January to be treated for "exhaustion".

She entered the facility, which specialises in treating people between the ages of 18 and 26, on 5 January and has since left the centre.

A source added to Radar: "It's important to remember that Selena had worked in Hollywood non-stop for six years. She was exhausted. Selena was smart enough to understand that she needed to take control of her life.

"It just got to a 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 had, admittedly, become a bad influence on her."

She is now said to be "feeling much better... She's feeling really positive, healthy and already getting back to work."
