(USA TODAY) In December, Selena Gomez announced that she was canceling the Australia leg of her tour because she needed to "spend some time on myself."
Now, Radar Online is reporting that Gomez checked herself into a rehab facility in January to do just that.
"Emotional issues" prompted a quiet, "secret" two-week stay at The Meadows recovery facility in Wickenburg, Ariz., on Jan. 5., says the site.
Gomez's rep, Brit Reece confirms to USA TODAY that: "Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows, but not for substance abuse."
The visit was prompted by a need for a rest, not partying, just as Gomez told fans in December: "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."
