Selena Gomez is taking a break.
The 21-year-old popstar has been turning her life around lately and is thought to have ended her on/off relationship with troublemaker Justin Bieber.
She took to Instagram to share a picture of a serene setting with palm trees and let fans know that she's having some time out.
"Instead, ill pray above for what I have. So thankful for a well deserved break. Thinking about all of you unconditionally. (sic)," she captioned the shot.
It's not the first time Selena has decided to step out of the limelight for a short while. In December last year she cancelled some of her Stars Dance Tour shows in favour of spending time with her family.
It was later announced that the star had checked into rehab for two weeks in January. It's unknown why she spent time at the facility, but her representative confirmed it wasn't for substance abuse.
Selena has reportedly overhauled her friendship circle recently and unfollowed everyone she had on Instagram, including Justin and her showbiz pals Kylie and Kendall Jenner. TMZ claims she felt the A-list siblings are "nothing but a toxic distraction".
The singer-and-actress also seems to be keen to change up her love life. She's been on and off with Justin, 20, since 2010, but lately she's been linked to 37-year-old Orlando Bloom.
Orlando split from wife Miranda Kerr last year, who was thought to have got friendly with Justin at 2012's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
'Her friends are pushing her to start dating. She really needs to get Justin out of her system, that's why she's been hanging out with Orlando,' a source explained to HollywoodLife.com.
