Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Mandy Teefey

Selena Gomez's mother recently admitted herself into the hospital after experiencing a mental breakdown. Gossip tabloid TMZ reported that Amanda "Mandy" Teefey, pictured right, checked herself into the hospital when she suffered a panic attack after arguing with her 25-year-old daughter about dating Justin Bieber again.

But a source close to the family confirms to PEOPLE magazine that Teefey wasn't admitted to the hospital due to her daughter's relationship with the emotionally unavailable 23-year-old singer.

The source said Teefey has a history of depression and the Christmas holidays are a stressful time for her.

“It’s been a stressful time for Mandy and she made the decision herself to go to the hospital and make sure everything was okay,” the source says. “This wasn’t just about Justin.”

The source adds, “It’s true her family doesn’t approve of Justin, but this wasn’t just over a fight about him.”

According to the National Institute of Health, Christmas is the time of year that people experience a high incidence of depression.

    Maybe not him per se but if you are depressed and this dumbass comes back into your life, it can only make things worse.

    "According to the National Institute of Health, Christmas is the time of year that people experience a high incidence of depression." But the media tells us that "It's the most wonderful time of the year." I knew that was bull. People out there shopping are cranky as hell. I think it's the most stressful time of the year.

    Note2Mom: Let these grown azz kids live their life. I know it hurts to see your child make the wrong choices; however while we (parents) are stressing; the kids are going to do as they please. I know it's easier said then done; but I refuse to let mine send me to an early grave! IMO

    Wasnt JUST about him. Not that it had nothing to do with him.

    Dear Selena Mama:

    Mandy if this is true you need to find you some gatdamn biz and some dick of your own hun. If you aint got some already. Dick not biz. But you need to butt tf outta that girl love life. It is HERS. Who you like or dont like is not of importance and if you having an attack behind all the bfs you dont like then I expect you to be having them right often.

    Hope someone gives you some biz for Christmas tho girl. Be easy

    Your sister in Christ,

    Me

    well dang, did folks really need to broadcast and speculate on this woman's mental health struggles???? whatever the reason or trigger, the important thing is that she sought the help she needs. hopefully, the callous handling of her situation won't discourage others who may need to seek help, smh

    So just how do you make sure everything is ok if you're feeling fine? You just go to the counter and say hey, I wanna see the doctor to make sure I'm ok..... And then what? They run tests, take your blood and say err ra yep, you're ok.... Really.? Ya'll believe that if ya want to.

  • justlooking

    Folks don't let your kids kill you. Let them screw up, a hard head makes dumb decisions they will regret and you will be alive to say I told your simple ass not to do that and hug them and help them start over again.

  • Gone Too Far

    As long as they warned her she’ll come running back to them. And they should take her in when she does. That’s what happened with my first love

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Bless her.

  • Allihave2say

    For those of you in the know, did you catch Selena's finger in the middle pic with just her mom?

  • Allihave2say

    GGGIIIGGGGGGLLLEEESSS!!! ROTF!

  • Allihave2say

    Her face in the pic of them three of them looks like it's sliding to the side. I remember commenting a while back that Selena was hitting the black side and commenter had an entire fit of a lectured response to me about how untrue it was. It was very true as she was rolling with the brothers who were into the drug culture. They were passing her around like a blunt.

  • Allihave2say

    They may have a spare bed in Selena's Mama's hospital room. You need a reservation? LOL.

  • Allihave2say

    This boy was clean cut, cute and honest. Imagine all that he's been exposed to. The media kept calling him a soft lesbian and weirdo etc. They facilitated this boy's corruption. Not to mention his own parents helped him into addiction so they could have an endless supply.
