Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift used to be very good friends but nowadays there is some serious “bad blood” going on between the two.
As we have previously reported, Selena Gomez checked herself into a rehab facility last month because of her struggle with anxiety and depression and although she recently checked out of the Tennessee based facility she still needs to be careful about her choices and about the people that she lets into her life. Allegedly, Gomez refused to attend Taylor Swift’s 27th birthday party because her counselors advised against keeping in touch with Taylor.
“Since Selena got out of rehab, she has been cutting out all of the bad influences in her life — and that definitely included Taylor,” explained a source close to Selena Gomez.
Apparently the two starlets’ friendship has proven toxic to Selena’s mental health in the long run –Taylor Swift is “wild” and a bad influence on Selena who is trying to regain her confidence and inner strength.
“Taylor is always trying to one-up Selena, and make it look like Selena is just lucky to be her friend,” the insider said. “Selena is just completely over it.”
As the fans remember, this is not the first time Selena threw shade at Swift; last time was on July 4th when she chose to throw her own party instead of attending Swift’s famous annual bash. Their friendship has always been bumpy and sprinkled with jealousy because of Taylor’s great competitiveness. Instead of supporting each other, their friendship turned into a race toward becoming better than the other.
However, it looks like despite the bad month she’s been having, now Selena Gomez is out of rehab and ready to take on the world again.
“Selena is sober now, and she is doing everything right. She is continuing to see a therapist and surround herself with positive influences. Taylor, unfortunately, does not make the cut anymore.”
