Selena Gomez's mother 'has been hospitalised' after they fought about Justin Bieber.

You probably didn’t want to click on this story, and yet here we are. Even though your eyes are rolled so far back into your head you can hardly read these words.

Because, as much as we hate to admit it, there is just something so interesting about Justin Bieber, 23, and Selena Gomez, 25.

For anyone born in the nineties, ‘Jelena’ (as they are affectionately known to their fans… but you already knew that, right?) are this era’s Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

No matter how hard they try, they just CANNOT. STAY. APART.

Despite the fact that the last time they split (two years ago, for those playing at home) seemed to be for good, the pair have been spotted on romantic dates and attending church services and everything in between for the last few months.

And Selena’s mum is not pleased.

According to entertainment site TMZ, Mandy Teefey has been hospitalised after she and her daughter had a "heated discussion" about her reconciliation, and future, with the troubled Sorry singer.

Law enforcement officials told TMZ they were called to a Los Angeles hotel last week to do a "welfare check" on Selena's mum at a family member's request.

"We're told she was taken to a nearby hospital to get checked out, but not under a 5150 hold - instead, she was voluntarily transported for treatment," the site reported.

Under a 5150 hold, patients can be confined involuntarily if they are deemed to be harm to themselves or others.

Sources also said that the mother and daughter had been having a "heated conversation" before police were called, during which Selena revealed she and her beau were having couples' therapy.

"Mandy flipped... realising the relationship was going to be more long-term than she thought," TMZ reports.

She was released from hospital the same day, and is believed to be giving her daughter "some space" to determine whether a future with Justin - who she first started dating in 2010 - is what she really wants.

The report is a stark contrast to one released last week by Bieber's family, which claimed the singer's parents "loved" that Selena was back in his life.

A source told E! News that Bieber's parents, Pattie Mallette and Jeremy Bieber, were happy the young musicians had reunited.

"His parents love Selena. That want him to date someone and think she is very sweet and a good girl," the source said.

"They think that being back together with Selena is a positive thing. He wants to do things differently and make it right and show everyone how far he has come."

If Mandy's reaction sounds a little extreme, consider this: it's been a big year for Selena.

In September, the singer revealed she had undergone a 'secret' kidney transplant due to her battle with lupus. She also broke up with her boyfriend of 10 months, singer The Weeknd just weeks before reconciling with her on-and-off-again beau Bieber.

It only seems natural that a mother would worry so much about her daughter's wellbeing, especially if choices have been made under intense pressure from fans and managers.

We can only hope that Selena and her mum can sort out their differences soon. After all, blood is thicker than water.
