Selena Gomez quietly completed a two-week rehab stint at Arizona’s Dawn at the Meadows last month, sources confirm to E! News. The Come & Get It singer, 21, entered the facility right after canceling the Australian leg of her Stars Dance tour, saying in a statement, “I need to spend some time on myself.” Rumor has it that the former Disney star was becoming a bit of a wild child and wanted to nip her “experimenting phase” in the bud. The center is for people aged 18 to 26 who are “struggling with emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns.”

Will Selena’s off again bf Justin Bieber be checking in next? Last week, the be-bopping pop star’s private jet was searched by DEA and U.S. Customs on suspicion of pot at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport. The 19-year-old Baby crooner did admit to smoking marijuana (a strong odor was detected on board) and drinking alcohol, according to a report filed by officials, obtained by NBC News, but a search found nothing suspicious, and Bieber and his peeps were free to go (!). Oh and the Canadian upstart got snooty with a flight attendant, security team and entourage, according to the report.

That safety pin Versace dress Elizabeth Hurley wore to the 1994 premiere of then beau Hugh Grant’s Four Weddings and a Funeral really was impressive. According to a RadarOnline bombshell, President Bill Clinton was so taken with the British beauty that he had Liz’s ex, actor Tom Sizemore, arrange a rendezvous at the White House four years later. The man whom Sizemore boasted to allegedly has an audiotape in which the Saving Private Ryan star boasts of his matchmaking skills. According to this unnamed source, Hurley and Clinton carried on a fling for about a year while Hillary slept in another bedroom. As for the story’s legs? Hurley tweeted, “Ludicrously silly . . In the hands of a lawyer. Yawn.”

The man who discovered Philip Seymour Hoffman’s body Sunday is broken up over the Oscar winner’s death for perhaps a more personal reason. “We were homosexual lovers. We had a relationship,” David Bar Katz told the National Enquirer on Wednesday. The NYC playwright added that he did not know Hoffman’s addiction to heroin “had reached that level.” Hoffman’s estranged partner of 14 years and the mother of his three children, costume designer Mimi O’Donnell, hasn’t commented, but a friend of Katz’s told The New York Daily News that the Enquirer article is a lie and he intends to take legal action.

Leonardo DiCaprio is pushing 40, but he still doesn’t look to have any plans to settle down. According to UK’s Metro gossip magazine, the Wolf of Wall Street was spied early Sunday leaving in the same car from NYC’s Club Avenue with Nina Agdal. Their significant others — model Toni Garrn and rocker Max George, respectively — were nowhere to be seen.
