AceShowbiz - Selena Gomez is out of rehab and looks happier and healthier than before. The 26-year-old singer/actress, who checked into treatment after suffering an emotional breakdown triggered by her health issue, has resurfaced via her friends' Instagram accounts.
On Tuesday, December 18, her close friend and Puma campaign co-star Connar Franklin as well as her former "Wizards of Waverly Place" co-star Bailee Madison shared photos from their snow-filled vacation. The "Monte Carlo" star was joined by a group of friends on a snow-tubing trip in Big Bear, California.
Selena was all smiles as she posed with her pals in the photos with the background of the snowfield. She kept herself warm in an all-black ensemble which included a hoodie, jacket, pants, gloves and beanie.
A source confirms to PEOPLE that Selena is now back home. "She's feeling much better and looking forward to getting back to normalcy," the source says. "She's spending time with friends and family."
Selena reportedly checked out of rehab in November. "Selena is out of her treatment program in NYC and is doing much better," a source told E! News at the time. "(She is) refreshed and is in a better head space. (She) will still be checking in with professionals as her health battle is ongoing." The source added, "(For now she) wants to lay low for a while and isn't ready to go full force into working yet."
The former Disney darling was hospitalized twice in two weeks between late September and early October for low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant. During her second visit, she reportedly had a downward spiral and reportedly refused to stay in the hospital. Selena later checked into the East Coast psychiatric facility where received dialectical behavior therapy.
