Justin Bieber quickly moved on from Selena Gomez to marry Hailey Baldwin, but he still deeply cares about his ex — and he even tried to contact her after learning about her breakdown and hospitalization, a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“Justin contacted Selena’s mother because he wanted to make sure she is okay and possibly see her,” a source close to the troubled 26-year-old’s family told Radar.
However, protective mom Mandy Teefey did not allow her struggling daughter to speak to her 24-year-old ex-boyfriend, who married model Baldwin, 21, just a few months after his split from the singer.
“Mandy thinks Selena’s breakdown partially has to do with her heartbreak over Justin,” the source said.
As Radar previously reported, Gomez has checked into a mental health facility after she broke down over her physical troubles, reportedly including a low white blood cell count one year following her kidney transplant surgery.
A source told Radar her family believes her recent admitted drinking and partying may have led to her very serious mental and physical health problems.
“Doctors have all told her she needs to stop,” the insider claimed. “Her family says she needs to stay sober, or she could die.”
