Los Angeles - Selena Gomez has been in a "bad place" since breaking up with Justin Bieber.

The Come and Get It hitmaker split from the 19-year-old heartthrob at the beginning of 2013 after a turbulent two-year relationship, but she's still struggling to come to terms with life without her former beau and has been relying on her family for support.

An insider said: "Dealing with her breakup from Justin has still been affecting her and she's been in a bit of a bad place recently.

"Her family stepped in and basically advised her to either go to therapy or stay with them so they could watch over her. Her team agreed that family time would be best."

The 21-year-old singer is planning on spending time with Taylor Swift - who disapproved of her friend's romance with Justin and encouraged her to stay away from him - in the New Year as a way of forgetting her troubles. 

The insider told "Selena has plans to hang out a lot in the coming weeks with close friends like Taylor Swift. Taylor has been a really good support system for Selena in recent weeks."

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty recently announced she was axing her concerts in Australia, China, Japan and the Philippines - expected to kick off on January 16 - as part of her Stars Dance world tour in order to focus on herself.
