Selena Gomez is being portrayed as a drunk in a new tabloid report based on her behavior at the Vanity Fair Oscars party Sunday night. But the story appears to manipulate her recent rehab stint to create more lurid headlines.

Gomez, 21, spent two weeks in rehab voluntarily in January, “but not for substance abuse,” her rep said in a statement at the time.

Officially, she entered rehab for “exhaustion” and left the six-week program early to attend “The Sundance Film Festival.”

Yet, gossip site radaronline reported that Selena was “tipsy” at the party and cited an anonymous source claiming she was “drinking constantly.”

“She was having a grand old time and towards the tail end she was stumbling in her heels and almost toppled right over,” said the source, supposedly an “eyewitness.”

Radaronline has invested heavily in Selena’s supposed substance abuse. Before her rehab stint, it reported that Gomez was partying hard and “experimenting with marijuana and prescription drugs, including Xanax and Ambien.”

Of course her reps heatedly denied the report and real factual evidence to back it up other than a so-called “source” has yet to surface.

Other reports also contradict the gossip site story.

The singer and actress was never photographed with a drink in her hand, London’s Daily Mail reported. “She wasn’t even there very long,” it added citing its own “source.”

At the party, she was photographed with actor Bill Murray and looked clear-eyed and sober.

She looked stunning on the red carpet at the party in an Emilio Pucci gown for the designer’s Fall 2014 collection. The sheer, sequined halter-top gown was revealing enough without a major exposure of flesh.

The next day, Selena was spotted heading for a dance studio in Los Angeles, keeping a previously made appointment.

Whether she’s battling substance abuse is an open question, but this latest report doesn’t do anything to fill in the holes. Chalk it up to click bait.
